Joburg-based Mi Casa have reached a global audience with their signature sound.
But, joining Phemelo Motene in studio, it seems they have been able to keep their feet on the ground and stay humble.
The band's members share their thoughts on fame and how they deal with it.
Fame was never meant for human beings. In the olden days, people couldn't see God and then they started praising idols and things that they could see and that's filtered down into today's society where people praise things.— Mi Casa member
That's one of the main reasons why a lot of celebrities end up so messed up. There's a lot of pressure on being famous.— Mi Casa member
We really focus on music and what we do. We're not about the hype.— Mi Casa member
And their moves on stage, what literally moves them?
J says he 'can't move to save my life', but is inspired by Michael Jackson's interpretation of what dance is.
Going back to Michael Jackson - one of the things that he said that really made me appreciate dance more, he said when he dances it's his body is singing... Half the time I don't know what I'm doing, I just get carried away.— Mi Casa member
The group say the highlights of their careers are not only about the big events and all the accolades they've received.
Obama, Afcon finals, all these crazy things that we've done help but more so than those, there have been moments where we started out where we see in the hood, an old magogo singing your song, then you see young kids singing your songs, then you'd go to Sandton and see other people singing your songs...— Mi Casa member
