Portes[5] After shooting the Movie Rosas Records have communicated with the six kids in the movie; Pierro,Cyline, Jocel,Rowell,Keno and Myko to form a Pop group along with two other selected members Michelle (Miss Enchanted Kingdom Talent and Smile) and Hazel ( stage performer and singer) thus the Mus'ka was formed.The word Mus'ka was derived from the original word Musika. The letter "I" was omitted for the simple reason that the kids' mission is to sing together in harmony and to perform with a love for music. The name also means that the love for music resides in everyone and everyone is free for everyone.
