Right from an early age of about 5, SAEON MORUDA had always known she was going to end up in showbiz, Music being her major.

She coined her stage name, SAEON, by playing with the letters in her real names. MORUDA didn’t become a part of her stage name until later in her career. While making a song titled “Boogie down”, she used the line “sexy mama SAEON mo rude ah” (English for sexy mama SAEON I’m rude, ah!). On seeking a verdict from her good friend, he interpreted it as SAEON MORUDA.

SAEON being the creative that she is, embraced the essence of it and seamed it into her stage name, making it her last name. SAEON MORUDA likes to describe herself as a a one-woman army with a passion for what she does. She says the name “MORUDA” brings out the tough tomboy side in her, which explains her “#BoyChick” brand.
