Moonchild may appear to be a tough person who does not let other people’s ideas define her, but the musician is human and has spoken up about what goes on behind closed doors.

Moonchild Sanelly interacts with her social media fans and has opted to open up about her history, which featured her then 5-month-old twins.

The singer came to Twitter to discuss her baby daddy’s aggressive behavior, which has left her trapped in Johannesburg with two infants and a family that has abandoned her.

She stated in her tweet that her children do not know their father because they were too little to remember him.

Despite the emotional weight that her children’s father has placed on her, she claims he goes around telling people that she is the one who took the children away from him.

“There are too many lasts!” When my baby daddy kicked me out with our 5-month-old twins, who will be 7 (in) 2020. There are no tears, only love, digital tablets, fantastic school, privacy, and delight without knowing who the heck he is! He still claims I took the kids away when he kicked us out! “But we’re fine!” she exclaimed.

Moonchild sees the ordeal as a blessing in disguise. She felt it was exactly what she needed to handle Johannesburg’s frenetic pace.

She says her twins are very different. “My twins are very different. You have ‘miss organised’ and you have ‘miss pantsula’. But in class, they perform pretty much the same

Moonchild Is Officially Entering Adult Entertainment

The singer recently stated that she would soon create an OnlyFans platform. OnlyFans, for unfamiliar people, is an internet platform for various forms of sexual entertainment. Fans can subscribe to their favorite “content creators” directly, and only those who are subscribed can access the content. 

The idea was to avoid entertainment business gatekeepers who profit themselves at the cost of others who do the labor. Although the site can be used for a variety of content, including music and even movies, its most popular usage is currently for various forms of sexual content, which has become so prevalent that that is what the site is known for nowadays.

After being together for almost three years, the couple recently separated. Moonchild says she is single but enjoys having sexual relations with both men and women.

Sanelly’s dildo gets her under fire

Moonchild Sanelly, a South African musician and dancer, may have made a name for herself through her genre-bending musical style. However, the singer-songwriter and poet has also been a vocal supporter of body positivity and women owning their sexuality.

The Makhe hitmaker has previously introduced her own line of s.e.x toys and has consistently used her platform to share tricks, tips, and trades on how to best achieve an orgasm as a woman. However, it appears that her most recent Twitter post did not elicit the same level of response.

It all started earlier in the week when Moonchild Sanelly took to Twitter and posted what looked like one of her s.e.x toys. The toy had some moisture on it which led to some of her followers asking whether she had used the toy before proceeding to take the image. However, Moonchild then retorted that the moisture seen on the toy was actually water.

But things started to take a turn for the worst when Moonchild initially responded to one of the unsavory comments on the post which asked if she could sit or seat on their face.

It seems that other male social media users felt that her response was unwarranted. Primarily, the suggestion was made based on the fact that Moonchild has owned her s.e.xuality on social media therefore she is not meant to be surprised at the misogyny she faces.

But the singer-songwriter quickly made it clear that her owning her s.e.xuality was not a reason for male social media users to think that they can objectify her.

Her stance was received by her female followers with applause. Especially from her followers who believed that they lacked the type of confidence that she exudes. As such, Moonchild shared some of the positive messages she has received from her followers.

Concluding the matter, Moonchild seemed to suggest that she will not be engaging further with trolls and opted to skate around her newly bought home. A home that when she initially shared was met with some criticism. As reported at the time:

Singer Moonchild Sanelly finds herself having to defend her new house from trolls on social media. Overcome with excitement and joy, Moonchild Sanelly took to Twitter to share her new purchase and subsequently was met with a tough crowd.

The Yebo Teacher hitmaker is all over Twitter having to defend her house over people who are hating on it. Trolls have lambasted Moonchild Sanelly’s house and called it a guesthouse. The spicy and somewhat controversial Sanelly did not beat around the bush to put the trolls in their place.

“When u talk less and do more. New years gift to me from MUSIC new home who dis!!! Just bought a house. Also, tune into @METROFMSA from 4-6 co hosting with @iamtbotouch It’s a good time!!!” wrote Moonchild Sanelly.

Evidently, another tweeps was not jumping for joy over Sanelly’s new house. As one tweeps did not spare her any mercy over her house as they have taken a jab and called Moonchild Sanelly’s house a guesthouse.


She is 36 years of age. She was born on November 20, 1987.
