About Moonchild Sanelly

Moonchild Sanelly is an electrifying performer from South Africa who refers to her music as future ghetto punk. Known for her outspoken views on female empowerment and sexual positivity, she sings in Xhosa and English over productions drawing from house and dance-pop as well as hip-hop and dancehall. Following the release of her 2015 debut full-length, Rabulapha!, she became a celebrity in her home country, and reached international audiences through her appearances on releases by Beyoncé, Gorillaz, Major Lazer, and others. Her second album, 2022's Phases, incorporated South African dance genres like gqom and amapiano as well as left-field pop.
