Moonchild says on the remix, “I’m excited for everyone to hear this version of Bashiri featuring my German boobeam Ebow. When my European adventures led me to Vienna where I met Aramboa and Ebow, we had to let you hear this version with a fellow female badass from the continent.”
Moonchild Sanelly also features in Africa Express’ new short film EGOLI by Denholm Hewlett. The film documents the Africa Express South Africa trip, featuring an incredible group of visiting musicians including Damon Albarn, Blue May, Gruff Rhys, Georgia, Ghetts, Mr Jukes, Nick Zinner, Remi Kabaka, Otim Alpha and Poté alongside emerging and established stars of the buzzing South African music scene.

2020 was a big year for Moonchild Sanelly. Not only did she release Nüdes to critical acclaim, she featured in Beyoncé’s Black Is King visual album for the song “MY POWER”, followed by a feature on the Gorillaz album Strange Timez for the track “With Love to an Ex”. Fearless, inclusive and a lot of fun, Moonchild Sanelly is only just getting started. Her iconic personal style combined with an outspoken approach to female sexual empowerment has earned her collaborations with Die Antwoord, Ghetts, Diplo and Wizkid and built her a devoted fanbase. She is “a global superstar waiting to happen” according to Damon Albarn.
