Interviewed by Veruska De Vita


J’Something makes music, cooks food, and tries to be a good human being, according to his YouTube profile. Now, the Mi casa frontman has partnered with The Halfway Group to get South Africa On Track to Better.


What inspires you about South Africa, and how does this inspire your music? If you have an example, please share.

South Africa at the core is a community of people. We have what makes for a beautiful story. A bit of everything really … and therein lies all the inspiration a songwriter could ever dream of. We have love, we have pain, we have history and we have hope for a better future, but what inspires me the most about us is I find us to be a people that deals with the present moment well. We tend to stay optimistic through a lot and that particular point inspires me as a person.

What do you love about South African music?

I have always loved the color of our music. It’s our tone, our soul, our groove, our vibe … collectively it’s very cool. I am honored to be a part of it and to play a part in adding to the long history of musicians that this country has developed and continues to do so.

Which SA musicians/ bands have influenced you the most?

South African artists have inspired us as Mi Casa tremendously … for starters Mango Groove. This is a band that is very close to us. Mo-T’s dad was the original trumpeter for the band and their story and ability to bring people together really inspires us a lot. Another band would be Stimela. They were so ahead of their time, man. Their songwriting, their melodies, their groove …

What are your hopes for the country in support of the ongoing journey to a better South Africa?

My hope is always that we can unearth more joy whilst placing our maximum efforts towards equality across the board. The past is behind us AND it cannot be erased. We have to learn from it all and apply our learning to create the future we hope for. I hope this desire never becomes too “cheesy” for us to talk about because it’s really important. We as a band have very intentionally tried to play our part and will continue to do with the power of music and the love we receive from so many South Africans.
