Watch South Africa’s Moonchild Sanelly Perform With Gorillaz

Gorillaz brought out Moonchild Sanelly at Rosklide Festival.

A clip of charismatic South African singer Moonchild Sanelly performing with Gorillaz has surfaced online. She joined the band for a rendition of their song "Out of Body" from their 2017 album Humanz.


Moonchild gives the song her own interpretation, and even adds some IsiXhosa lyrics. "Out of Body" originally features Kilo Kish, Zebra Katz & Imani Vonshà.

Moonchild has carved a lane for herself in the South African electronic music scene. She released her debut album Rabulapha! in 2015, and has since released more singles, such as "Fox With That." Last year, she appeared on one of the biggest South African songs, "Midnight Starring" by DJ Maphorisa.

Focalistic Shares Visuals For ‘Ke Star (Remix)’ Featuring Vigro Deep and Davido

Watch the music video for 'Ke Star (Remix)' by Focalistic, Vigro Deep and Davido.

After sharing the remix to "Ke Star" last week Friday, Focalistic has followed-up with the song's visuals. The video show performance scenes by the two musicians flanked by dancers. The visual is stunning as everyone who appears is dripped up, and the dancers make sure the viewer never takes their eye off the screen.

The remix for "Ke Star" is hopefully a move that kickstarts Pitori Maradona's continental dominance. Amapiano as a sound has proven popular in many parts of the continent and some parts of the world. Davido is one non-South African musician who has embraced the sound which can be heard in his latest album A Better Time.
