MiCasa lead singer J'Something says he was honoured to perform for boxing heavyweight Floyd 'Money' Mayweather during his recent visit to South Africa.

Floyd was in the country as part of his 'Motherland Tour', which also made a stop in Harare, Zimbabwe.  

"Mayweather will focus on youth employment initiatives, engaging in Q&A sessions and delivering motivational speeches to inspire the next generation. As a testament to his appreciation, Mayweather will also give back to his devoted fans in the motherland, fostering a sense of gratitude and unity throughout his tour," the tour website stated. 

He also celebrated South African boxing legends at a dinner in Sandton. MiCasa were guest artists at the event. Video footage from the banquet showed Floyd dancing to the band at his table.

"Not everyday that one of the greatest athletes of all time dances to your music … @floydmayweather what an honor it was to share in some time with you king! @micasamusic. We make music so we can dance …" J'Something captioned the clip on Instagram

The singer's fans told him that his music can make anyone dance. 

"The beauty of music being a universal language," Jennifer Bala commented.

Did Floyd Mayweather really spend $7-million at a Gucci store in Sandton?

Floyd was spotted on several shopping sprees during his visit. He was pictured leaving a Gucci store in Sandton where, according to the Daily Mail, he allegedly spent $7-million (R125-million) - though the report could not be verified. 

Floyd exited the store surrounded by armed bodyguards. 

Floyd, who has a reported net worth of more than $450-million, was also spotted doing some browsing at Markham!

His fans were shocked to see him at the store.

"Floyd Mayweather is here shopping at Markham and others are busy forcing fake Gucci and LV, make it make sense," one Twitter user remarked.

Another tweep added: "Floyd Mayweather walking into Markham and checking the price of a sweater has me dead ngl."
