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
