- It seems Moonchild Sanelly is not a fan of pastors who use the church to make big bucks
- The muso recently released a song taking aim at pastors who use their congregations to enrich themselves
- Some couldn't help but notice that the name of her song - Bashiri - sounds like the name of a famous Mzansi pastor
Moonchild Sanelly is shaking the tables with a new song called Bashiri. In the song, the muso takes a dig at pastors who use the church to make money.
Speaking to ZAlebs, the artist said that the song was inspired by a woman who spoke about a pastor being treated like a god. The song talks about preachers who use God to make a profit.
The controversial song is from the perspective of a member of the "Bashiri" church. In the song, the woman is being cheated on by her hubby. She takes the unfaithful man to a pastor who promises to help them if she prays and pays tithes.
The song is already causing a stir among Mzansi social media users who can't help but notice a similarity in the name "Bashiri" with a certain other pastor. Instagram user bringerofd00m said:
"Bashiri, it is nice to see those not afraid to make art."
"Dear god Moonchild Sanelly, Bashiri, I pray for your blessing please let me do well with my studies and also steer me in the right path as I work towards making a name for myself in the video game industry. Love you, Amen."
"Every time @Moonsanelly drops either a song, feature or even just a tweet of self-appreciation, I relive the whole loving her again, you're amazing Boobeam! #bashiri"
"Bushiri watch out!"
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Mzansi has found a new favourite TV show as Abafundisi trends for the second week. The hit show follows three pastors with differing spiritual views and leaves viewers to make their own decisions on who to believe.
Mzansi social media users have taken a particular liking to Bishop Maponga, who believes in spirituality more than religion.
