During the Live in Concert the trio was supported by local acts that thrilled the audience with their performances. Hip hop artist Guluva 7 who last week ‘slayed’ the Jam session in Harare wowed the audience. Not to be out done was songstress Alaina who left a mark with remarkable dance moves. The energetic Mzoe 7 proved his prowess in live performances.
Mi Casa performed for an hour and a half. The sensational trio began their polished performance with a rendition of Mafikizolo’s 2007 hit single ‘Ndihamba Nawe’ taken from the Sibongile album. The audience sang along as they were taken down memory lane. After lightening up the atmosphere the trio wowed the audience with their hit singles Jika, Bar man, Heavenly Sent, Chocolate, and Your Body, to mention a few.
Mi Casa’s intriguing performance ended after midnight. The trio’s after party at Club Eden lived up to expectations as revellers filled up the night spot.
The trio received a lot of attention in 2011 after releasing their hit single “These Streets”. The single was taken from the album titled ‘Mi Casa Music’ which showcased the trio’s unique urban jazz sound.
To date Mi Casa is on major South African radio and television stations where they are topping charts. The trio has opened for a number of international acts like Drake, The Layabouts, Reel People, YMCMB, and Tortured Soul.
