Sammy Saeni (a.k.a. Sharzy) is a musician from Solomon Islands.
Sharzy was born on the island of Simbo in the Western Province. His mother is from Simbo and his father from Malaita. His musical career began in 1995 when he joined the 2-4-1 band. He produced his first solo album "Aloha" in 2001, which became an instant hit. Since then he has released "Aelan feel'n" (2003), "Aelan Wei" (Pijin for "island way") (2008), "Hem Stret" (2008), "Yumi Flo" (2009) and "Iu Mi Flow" (2010). He sings in many languages including Simbo, Roviana, and Solomon Islands Pijin. He also has tracks in Tok Pisin and English.
His early songs were mostly love songs, but he described his fifth album, released in May 2008, as "different": "My fifth album has a different taste [...] because I sing about things that happen in life."
