Watch Moonchild Sanelly and Dejot’s Music Video for ‘Newtown Chips’

Moonchild Sanelly and Dejot share the visuals for their latest single.

Dejot released the EP Uhujano in February. The Swiss producer enlisted South African artists such as Moonchild Sanelly, RADIO 123 and Waterlillyrose, among others.


Today, the producer premieres a music video for a single from Uhujano. Titled "Newtown Chips," the song features Moonchild Sanelly.

In the song, the singer muses about relationships and privacy in the digital era. The song took shape from a piece of advice Moonchild shared with a friend about the sharing of nudes, how, if you share them with another person, they will highly likely end up being seen by more eyes than intended. In the hook, she sings, "Don't send nudes, dear," and later, "We just gotta watch these streets, yeah they love us, then they hate us; share our horror, then pour their drinks on us."

On working with Moonchild, Dejot shared with OkayAfrica in an email:

"I heard Moonchild for the first time on that Fantasma song called "Shangrila" and I fell in love with her voice and style. So when I came to Joburg for a couple of months, I wanted to record with her, not even knowing much about her and her artistic versatility. At RMBO (Tshepang Ramobas)'s studio, we met for the first time. She listened to a couple of my beats and we started to work. A session with Moonchild feels like working close to a tornado while constantly trying to catch all these fantastic ideas that spin around."
