Costello grew up in music from his childhood days in Fiji’s second city of Lautoka.
He entertained guests both locals and tourists at the former family-run Beachcomber Island Resort for many years.
Costello’s first album Tropical Sunset was released in 1979.
He went on to release the hugely successful album Lania in 1980 and it changed the music industry in Fiji.
Other albums followed over the years.
