"Mi Casa" goes Platinum
It was announced earlier this week that Mi Casa's eponymous debut studio album on Soul Candi Records has earned RISA Platinum status, having sold more than 40 000 copies.
The announcement was met with delight by the label, whose manager Allan Nicoll said: "In this digital world it's a tremendous achievement for any artist to achieve such strong support via CD sales. We are over the moon and now aim for double platinum."
Mi Casa's front man, Joao Fonseca (J'Something) spoke on behalf of the band saying: "We cannot believe that what started as a random night at a Soul Candi party has now turned into an album with Platinum status. We feel so blessed and forever thankful."
Since its release in 2011, the album has had massive success in retail stores and on radio charts. Mi Casa Music includes two hit singles - Heavenly Sent and These Streets - which was awarded 2012 MTN SAMA Song of the Year, one of three awards taken home by the group at the awards.
Mi Casa recently released an 3D animated video for their current single La Vida.
