Moonchild Sanelly’s electrifying energy, infectious voice and killer hooks make her one of the most sought after acts today, whilst her outspoken approach to female empowerment makes her one of the most poignant.

Fearless, inclusive, and a lot of fun - Moon's original sound of “future ghetto funk” was born & raised with her in South Africa, and solidified with her award-winning debut album. A string of smash hits has gained her superstar status on her home turf, and she's ready for global domination. Strides towards this goal include recent collaborations with Beyonce, Gorillaz, Major Lazer and Ghetts, with more to come. Her acclaimed singles 'Yebo Teacher’, 'Undumpable' & Radio 1's Hottest Record in the World 'Demon' are all out now on Transgressive Records.
