Listen to Moonchild Sanelly and Lunatik’s New Single ‘Dlala’

Moonchild Sanelly and Lunatik connect on new single 'Dlala.'

South African hip-hop super producer Lunatik teams up with Moonchild Sanelly for a single that feels like summer. "Dlala" has Lunatik's recognizable bassline and the customary kwaito influence.


Moonchild has a knack for kwaito, and meets the producer halfway on "Dlala." She laces the instrumental with kwaito-esque verses and hook.

Lunatik has produced mega hits that all reveal a producer who has mastered his sound and has versatility that not many of his peers can even dream of. From the seminal "CaraCara" by K.O and Kid X to Moozlie's "Vatel" and countless others by the likes of Emtee, Sjava, Amanda Black, MaE and others.

With the right push, "Dlala" could become another entry in his long list of hits.
