Wagner Domingues Costa (5 November 1968 – 9 September 2018), known professionally as Mr. Catra, was a Brazilian funk singer and actor. He was known in Brazilian pop culture for his large number of children, having two wives, and his famous laugh at the beginning or ending of his songs.
Mr. Catra graduated in law and was a polyglot, speaking English, French, German and Hebrew, besides his native Brazilian Portuguese.
He had 33 recognized children with 18 women,. Catra used to say that "he always adds 2 because he never knows if he has more (children) around that he doesn't know of". He never asked for a paternity test. Two of his children are adopted and are HIV positive. He had been with one of his three wives for 22 years. One of his sons died aged 5 years old, leaving the singer traumatized by his loss. In 2011 he converted to Judaism.
