And if we know that he likes the colors which characterize his artistic identity, Mika recognizes that before this real rainbow, he had an obsession with painting everything white. “ I painted everything white, (…) even a piano that we had for rent. My parents came home one day, I had painted it white », a choice which was not trivial since according to him, “ if everything is white, it can be transformed more easily “.

Since then, the artist has become the one we know and continues to brighten the hearts of his fans. Recently, Mika performed on the stage of the WECB Music Awards on the occasion of his nomination in the “Francophone Clip of the Year” category.
