In our feel-good news of the day, gqom queen Busiswa gave us all a lump in our throats with her touching tribute to her long-time friend and fellow musician Moonchild Sanelly when the two shared the stage at Rosefest recently.
The artists first collaborated on their track Midnight Starring, and have since gone on to feature on Beyoncé’s Lion King-inspired album. If that’s not the definition of a glow-up, we don’t know what is!
In a video shared on Busiswa’s Instagram account, we get a glimpse into how much this friendship means to both women as Busiswa surprises Moonchild with a very special gift. ‘We’ve shared buses and taxis and crappy studios over the past 11 years,’ Busiswa said on stage. ‘I wanna surprise you with a gift because I wanna celebrate you and I wanna do it in front of everyone because it is important that you celebrate the women in your life,’ she added. And no, we’re not crying, YOU ARE.
