'Cause, they're looking for one...
I have only been there once and if there was a singer, the uh oha - I drank by myself, forgot it. Lol (trader Sam’s, been to Ohana probably 30 times or more)Yes they always have had a woman or man singing at ‘Ohana for dinner (we dine there every visit and just did in October again) and Trader Sam’s has had one too.
Hubby used to call her his “girlfriend”.There used to always be a lady, same one, every time at ‘Ohana. Last two trips, we dined there twice, each time a man, playing the ukulele and signing. They lead the coconut races and people celebrating. (September 2018, late November 2018) I prefer the man. I don’t know why but her voice just annoyed me. :-/

He’s had a couple of embraces from her over the years, and each time he finally picked his jaw up off the floor, he would proclaim, “She smells soooo good”.
In all truthfulness, I never felt the need to get close to her, so I can neither confirm nor deny the veracity of his assertion.

And yes, her voice annoyed me too. Mike lapped it all up though. Men.
Apparently her name is Lipoa, and she left in June 2017, after more than 20 years at ‘Ohana.I don't know the female singer's name at Ohana but I love her. Her voice is so soothing. That is her pictured above.
I literally just left ‘Ohana and Trader Sam’s. There were no singers or musicians at either, and I guess this is why?
When you tire of hearing the screams of "Uh-Oa! Uh-Oa! Uh-Oa!" for the 17th time in one night, make your way outside to the Tiki Terrace and listen to Elika. You won't be sorry!

She was certainly better at getting the kids (and men ) up to join her in the limbo dances and coconut races than her male replacement is.
ETA - According to someone on the Disboards, she now works Concierge at the Poly.
I know she was forced out. Not for the first time, I’m afraid.She did not leave. She was forced out of Ohana and is slowly being forced out of the Polynesian. The moved her to the Club level and last i heard were trying to move her over to Grand Floridian on occasion as well. On rare occasions you can see her in the lobby greeting at the entrance. They have also done this with other long term Cast Members who sort of become a face of this resort. She isn't the first and won't be the last I'm afraid. She is an outstanding Cast Member who always go above and beyond to make the interaction with Guest special. Another Cast Member to watch is Auntie Kaui who is always in the lobby. They have been trying to get rid of her for years.
