makagaga is slang in Samoan for matanana which simply means- Crybaby.

so matanana(makagaga) ese lenei teineis is-"this girl is such a crybaby"...
.it's a fun word for us Samoans to always play some jokes with to our non Samoan speaking friends..we usually use matanana mostly with children but is not limited.
