Join us as we chat to Michael about music and find out why he has developed such a love for South Africa.
"From the moment I met Michael he was as humble as can be but he had an amazing presence about him. When we sat down to chat it was great interviewing him because he would alaways give the full story with every question. One question I really wanted to ask was what happened to the hair? But it seemed like he already knew what I was gonna ask. He laughed it off and he told me that they convinced him to cut his hair by saying that the person that is going to cut his hair is the same guy that cuts Tom Cruises hair, he laughed and said " after all that to this day I still don't look like him".
