This brings us to the most recent accomplishment by Mi Casa – their second (and highly anticipated) album, ‘Mi Casa Su Casa’. Launching their newest album with the single ‘Jika’ and an African tour was possibly a decision the fans will always praise the Mi Casa team for.

Embracing their African tour, they managed to reach supporters from the colourful countries of Namibia, Botswana, Nigeria and Tanzania – to name only a few!
Not only does the album include future smash hits but also some incredible collaborations with the likes of Black Coffee, Jimmy Nevis and Mishka – these guys are proudly waving the South African flag for the world to see!
Showing growth and maturity whilst still staying as fresh and relevant as ever, this album is set to be one of the most mind-blowing releases of 2013 and with over 30,000 albums already sold, there’s no doubt that Su Casa will definitely be reaching the platinum status of its predecessor.
They have performed in sold out concerts around the world: from Nigeria and Angola, to London, Italy and Canada. They had the great honour of performing for President Barak Obama at his inauguration, and have shared the stage with grammy award-winning Ladysmith Black Mambazo. Their musical accolades speak for themselves.
