se-hey,come on, like come on it's ok.ke-you, fa'akau-buy,sell or argue..sese-wrong..

--Leai ua koe kaofi lou alu kalu ai oe, soia laia.

leai-no, ua koe kaofi- I 'll stop or won't,lou-should be lo'u which means -me,my,I, alu-go, kalu-because, ai oe-of you..soia lai'a-so stop or drop it...

so from the feeling of the conversation ,
I'm assuming someone is wanting to give his point on whatever is going on and his friend disagreed.

so-

"se aua ke fa'akau sese ...lol
-come on man. don't argue wrong with wrong".  (laughing out loud)

 leai ua koe kaofi lo'u alu kalu ai oe,soia laia
-no I'm not going 'cause of you, so drop it.

Better answer them to be good and stop wasting time!

"Se aua ke fa'akausese ..lol

in English is - don't return evil with evil. or wrong with wrong.

"se is a general pronoun here referring to anyone,
aua is don't or stop,
ke is a specific adjective here for a person, n fa'atau(fa'akau)
like I said above is shop,buy,sell,pay, and sese is wrong.
hope this'll help.
