It must be hard, trying to start your own musical career, while your father is the famous Cape Verdian musician Boy gé Mendes. But Mika Mendes managed very well.
He made his debut as a zouk musician on the compilation “alliança” and has since sung on many compilation albums, like those of Philip Monteiro.
In 2005, he records the album Paulo & Mika (New style). A year later, he is contracted Nichols to take part on a Marcía abum.
They obviously love him in Portugal, where he received awards in 2007. In 2008 Mika signs with the Sushiraw label of Kaysha where he released his first solo album.
