Majk Moti

Majk Moti

Real/full name:
Michael Kupper
64 (born Aug 29th, 1957)
Place of birth:
Germany (Wuppertal, North Rhine-Westphalia)


After leaving Running Wild in 1990, Moti worked for more than fifteen years as a computer programmer. Presently, he works in the Armscreen Group digital advertising company.

In 2008 Moti started a band, D'Orca, along with his wife Melanie "Mel" Dorca-Ruiz, Enrico Palazzo and Jörg Friedrichsen. The couple presently reside in Preston, England.


Moti appears in the Orden Ogan video "We are Pirates".

According to a 2008 interview, Moti's stage name originated back in 1985 when the Running Wild members used only their first names. Since he found "Mike too boring" he changed it in Majk and added the Indian name of his then-girlfriend, Moti.
