Majk Moti

Majk Moti

Real/full name:
Michael Kupper
65 (born Aug 29th, 1957)
Feb 16th, 2023
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. Afterwards, he worked 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 resided in Preston, England.


Moti appears in Orden Ogan's music video for "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.
