Moneoa is a South African singer and songwriter who rose to prominence with the release of her debut album titled Coming from Going To.

Born in Umthatha and raised in Durban, then later moving on to Johannesburg, her first passion was dancing but with the constant persuasion from her family she eventually decided to pursue a career as a musician.

She joined Rawknait Entertainment and worked on collaborations with the likes of Shugasmakx, Revolution, DJ Kent, Ebsian and Lulo Café. She wrote all the songs on the 14 track album with three of them “Is’Bhanxa”, “Pretty Disaster” and “More Than You” reaching the top 5 on numerous radio stations.Moneoa commented on the album saying, “Like most girls that have endured heartache because of a failed relationship, I took to writing, and was even more fortunate to be able to sing about it and be able to share my emotions with my fans”.

She adds “It’s from the lessons learnt that I’m able to draw from my emotions and translate it into music.”Moneoa’s voice is paradoxically chilling, yet soothing and is the perfect blend that delivers her Afro-Pop and Neo-Soul “feel good” music.She was also the opening act at the Anthony Hamilton Peace, Unity and Freedom Concert.
