Moonchild Sanelly, Busiswa, DJ Lag, Anatii & Bubele Booi feature on the Lion King soundtrack

The Lion King’s live action 2019 remake releases in cinemas today. Along with the release of the movie is the soundtrack which was exec-produced by Beyoncé.

In an interview with Good Morning America, she said “This soundtrack is a love letter to Africa, I wanted to make sure we found the best talent from Africa and not just use some of the sounds and do my interpretation of it. I wanted it to be authentic to what is beautiful about the music in Africa.”

Fittingly, she enlisted a host of Africa’s finest artists to contribute to the project. The list of credits is a long one, and included in the names of the contributors are Burna Boy, Yemi Alade, Wizkid, Tekno, Shatta Wale, and Mr. Eazi.

Many congratulations to our home-grown talent Moonchild Sanelly, Busiswa, DJ Lag, Anatii, and Bubele Booi for making their contribution to one of the biggest projects out this year. Keep flying the SA flag high!
