“A global superstar waiting to happen.” - Damon Albarn


Moonchild Sanelly’s original brand of electro -pop - ghetto-funk has fast gained her a reputation as South Africa’s most unique performer.  A superstar on her home turf, from her stellar solo career and award winning debut album Rabualpha to her collabs with Maphorisa, Sho Madjozi, Thandiswa Mazwai and many more, Moonchild is now collaborating with international superstars Gorillaz, Die Antwoord, Wizkid, Diplo and many more in the works.  She is, as Damon albarn puts it, “a global superstar waiting to happen”. Judging by her plans for 2019, the rest of the world won’t have to wait much longer.

Her electrifying energy, infectious voice, killer hooks and unique self-designed style make her one of the most sought after acts in South Africa today. Her outspoken approach to female empowerment, female pleasure and sexual health make her one of the most poignant.
