CLASSIC: Bra Hugh and J'Something

Legendary musician Bra Hugh and J’Something team up for new track.

J’Something doesn’t have to blow his own trumpet because he’s got Hugh Masekela to do that.

The trumpeter and front man of MiCasa teamed up for a single track entitled Heaven in You.

It’s a campaign for the larney Mercedes-Benz company and has the hashtag #EveryTerrain.

J Something says he had a ball of a time making the song and music video with Bra Hugh.

“Spending 48 hours with one of my mentors and someone I look up to in the music industry has been the highlight of my career,” he says.

And he says the legend can talk up a storm: “Listening to Bra Hugh talk about South Africa as his ‘first love’, witnessing the beauty he sees in everything – the land, the people, the endless opportunities and then watching him translate this passion into music was awe-inspiring.”

He took that love for Mzansi and created a collaboration that he says is a love song of sorts for SA.

“Heaven In You is more than just a great song; I wanted to write a love letter from Hugh Masekela for South Africa that captured his relationship with the country and my respect, love and gratitude I have for this land.”

The music video was shot on the Garden Route.

Fans are loving the collab and @LeslieAnneBoer tweeted: “#EveryTerrain with Hugh Masekela and J’Something just awesome take a bow everyone involved.”

It makes the Jika MaJika man’s heart soar: “I hope this song will inspire people to love and appreciate every curve of this country.”
