Our Gqom' queens, who were recently unveiled as some of the feautured artists on Beyonce's Lion-King inspired album, are our friendship goals.

Busiswa had us 'in our feels' on Instagram when she shared short videos of her tear-jerking appreciation for her friend, Moonchild Sanelly, during their Rosefest performance.

The two artists - who collaborated on their first track 'Midnight Starring' featuring Dj Tira, Maphorisa, Distruction Boyz  and Rude Boyz in 2017 - have been through a lot together. From sharing couches, floors, and public transport, to sharing stages.

"We've shared buses and taxis and crappy studios over the past 11 years. We've shared many things, " said Busiswa in the video.

"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.

Busiswa proceeded to present her bestie with a beautiful portrait which was drawn by artist Nomonde Ngema. The piece is a drawing of Moonchild's face with her trademark blue hairdo.

She continued to give a heartwarming speech about the hardships she has been through with the 'Makhe' hit maker.

"There were many times where you pushed me to keep going. There were many times where I didn't think that we were having real dreams, and I saw you and I knew that our dreams were real. There were many times where no one was paying to see us. There were many times where  we had to explain ourselves, we had to help people understand who we are and what we're trying to achieve,

"There were so many times I lost hope and you gave me a little bit of hope when I needed it. And I thank you and I love you, and I hope you're going to give all the little girls some hope as well."
