"My favourite memories of my dad involve fishing – and then going home to prepare our catch in good Portuguese style," the Mozambican-born frontman recalls. "He was a food and beverage manager for Sun International and just days after his passing, I was contact by the group to open a signature restaurant at their new Time Square development in Pretoria. It seemed as if my late father was helping me make my life-long dream of opening a restaurant come true."

This week, the talented musician and chef aims to remember his dad in style at his Portuguese-inspired eatery that is already drawing in the crowds. And, aware of the precious years he lost by not living close to his father, he enourages all dads to concentrate on spending quality time with their children, rather than just spending money.

"For Father's Day this year I plan to honour my dad, Carlos Fonseca, by cooking his all-time favourite meal ¬– and proposing a toast to him at my restaurant, Something's Cooking by J'Something."

We'll raise a glass to that.
