Miguel Bata, better known as Miguel Francisco was born on the 8th of April 1985 in Luanda, Angola. During the civil war a lot of diseases and epidemics made the life of his family harder than ever. But the worst was yet to come. At the age of 2 Miguel Francisco has been diagnosed with poliomyelitis, an incurable disease.
Threatened by civil war and the very bad medical conditions, his parents decided to flee in order for Miguel and his four siblings to have a better live in Europe. But the life as an immigrant family wasn’t easy at all Cause of unemployment and lack of language skills his father turned out to be unsatisfied and so he left the family and went back to Angola.
But instead of giving up, Miguel Francisco gained a lot of strength even though he was sick and lost his father. He started getting strong for his family and by now it was pretty clear that he ain’t an ordinary child. He began to play basketball singing and dancing. At the age of 14 he was already known in the streets for his popping, breakdance and acrobatic skills. Later he worked on his singing talent and learned how to play piano all by himself. And like his idols Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and James Brown he’s striving to be a legend.
