J Something misses late dad
MI CASA lead singer J something says he still has fond memories of his father who died two months ago, describing him as an incredible man who unconditionally loved him.
The artiste, who was in Bulawayo at the weekend, revealed this after his performance saying he wished they had spent more time together.
J Something’s father, Carlos Fonseca, died in Portugal in June while the artiste was performing in Malawi. The soft spoken J Something (real name Joao da Fonseca) said the last time he saw his father was last year albeit briefly.
“The last time I saw him was last year for about an hour and a half. I’d seen him two years prior and the next thing you know, the guy is gone,” said J Something.
“There’re those moments you say to yourself, I’m so busy, I wish I could spend more time with my loved ones.”
He said although they did not live together, his father was always close to him.
Turning to Mi Casa’s musical journey, J Something said the group had come a long way ever since appearing on SABC’s Live with Bonang Matheba five years ago.
“There’s nothing that pleases me more than doing what I love. It’s a great privilege to be celebrated by people and be able to travel. I remember the first time we got a booking in Durban, we were so excited. Now we travel to other countries and continents,” said J Something.
He said ever since he was young, he wanted to be famous and perform for crowds.
“It’s been an interesting musical journey. I’ve always had this dream to be famous as a kid. I wanted to be famous, not to enjoy the perks of fame, but to have a platform where I can make a change.
“I saw all these famous people having these followers and I thought man, imagine having all these followers listening to our music,” said J Something.
“The music that we’ve produced has been of good quality, not cheesy music, something which has seen it being accepted worldwide. Among our achievements are three multiplatinum selling CDs as well as African tours.” During their stay in Bulawayo, the group had an opportunity to visit orphanages where they donated some stuff and spent time playing with children there. They also toured Matopos among other activities. and European
