J’Something has been the smooth voice and face of SA’s most beloved house music trio, from the City Of Gold, for over a decade.

Alongside pianist and producer Dr. Duda and trumpeter Mo-T, this singer and guitarist has dominated as the frontman of the chart-smashing group Mi Casa, as their unique fusion of urban jazz and Afro-house took root in the hearts and minds of people all over the globe.

From the intense rush of the first Mi Casa show, to beating the fatigue associated with commercial stardom, to his latest sustainable farming endeavour, J’Something has proven to be a humble and grounded journeyman for every purpose.

Zolani Mahola

Zolani Mahola can be best described as a South African national treasure. Over her 17 years in the industry, she established herself as the frontwoman of award-winning group Freshlyground, before reinventing herself under her solo moniker as “The One Who Sings” at the end of 2019.

From getting deported by authoritarian regimes to feeling your lowest whilst on top, Zolani’s journey is one one of boundless optimism and heartfelt glimpses into the mind of this talented storyteller.
