‘Future ghetto punk’ musician Moonchild Sanelly is in the studio to infuse us with her vibrant energy and music. Originally from Port Elizabeth and now based in Johannesburg, Moonchild Sanelly flourished in the underground before rising to the mainstream after being featured on DJ Maphorisa’s hit song Midnight Starring which also featured DJ Tira and Busiswa.
Moonchild’s audience extends beyond South Africa’s borders, she has played at festivals in Amedica, Japan, Spain to name a few.
Born into a musical family, Monchild first appeared on stage when she was just six months old.
"I always sang. I hated choirs. I hated being invisible."
The music bug runs deep in the family as one of her daughters, nine year old Artemis is apparently working on her own EP, with a video due to be shot in June.
