Moonchild Sanelly’s ‘Scrambled Eggs’ Is An Ode To Opulence

A new era dawns...

South African trailblazer Moonchild Sanelly returns with audacious anthem, ‘Scrambled Eggs’, out via Transgressive.

Produced by Johan Hugo, ‘Scrambled Eggs’ is a pan-continental affair recalling the dub-infused, hypnagogic RnB of late noughties luminaries M.I.A and Santigold. With the release comes a video directed by Jabu Nadia Newman. Honouring her roots and the stylistic paraphernalia of South Africa, the visual was shot last month in Johannesburg, and is described as an “action-packed, chaotic and carefree caper, and celebration of female-led business empires.”

Moonchild says this of ‘Scrambled Eggs’: “When I started staying in the GOOD hotels, I noticed how the world is obsessed with avo and eggs for breakfast. It became a thing… you get avo & eggs for breakfast at the good places …”  She adds, “My writing recently has been me at my most humble, and ‘Scrambled Eggs’ is me reminding everyone – by the way, I AM that bitch! I’m a multi-passport artist travelling the world in custom designs and doing it all on my terms. And I’m really f**king proud of that.”

Moonchild has released two acclaimed solo albums ‘Rabulapha!‘ in 2015 and ‘Phases‘ in 2022, emerging as a genre-pivoting, idiosyncratic artist, working with superstars like Beyoncé, Gorillaz and Wizkid, as well as fringe-alternative artists like Sad Night Dynamite, Ghetts, Wesley Joseph.
