Moonchild Sanelly reposted the video on her Instagram page. The musician, whose real name is Sanelisiwe Twisha, was thrilled to have a huge international star show her music some love.

“OMGGGGGGGG yasss baddie @lupitanyongo getting CUTE!! HOT GIRLS GET CUTE ALL SUMMER,” she wrote.

‘Cute’ features on Moonchild Sanelly’s second album, ‘Phases’. The album was released earlier this month and has been getting attention from all over the world.

‘Phases’ is a mix of amapiano, house, R&B, gqom, and other music genres.

The 19-track album, which is also available as a physical CD and vinyl, features UK artists such as Ghetts and Trillary Banks – who features on ‘Cute’.

“…this album represents every type of girl, the ones you’d call a stalker, the stripper, the side-chick, the emotional one and the tough one – every shade of women,” she told SowetanLive.
