First things first – as always, head over to over here to catch up on Die Antwoord to be up to date on what we have covered it so far. Familiarize yourself with their behavior. In today’s update, there are a few clips in this little video compilation below. These are all part of some behind-the-scene clips which was documented by Die Antwoord‘s ex artist and videographer, Ben. Don’t worry if the video gets taken down by Die Antwoord for some bullshit copyright claim. It is totally expected. If it does disappear from YouTube, we will embed it on our server and share it on the cloud via GoogleDrive, OneDrive, WeTransfer and Dropbox. If it does get removed, we will treat is as a trigger to create various snippets for distribution through WhatsApp videos. Like Ninja would probably say: “There are more than one way to jerk off a cat, my broe. Keep it simple, keep it safe.”
In today’s episode of “Die Antwoord are totally innocent because it was 7 years ago and you have no proof and you are just jealous and butt hurt”, there are a few clips to go through:
In one of these clips you can see Ninja, clearly very proud of himself, discussing saying “nigger” live on stage for the first time in America. This was when he introduced Justin De Nobrega (DJ Hitek) for the very first time on stage as “my nigger, DJ hi-tek”. It is clearly a big moment for him which he reminisces about in the back of the cab.
Then there is another clip where Yo-Landi is hanging out with her Fietas crowd (the below-the-breadline poor white kids from the poor neighborhood, Fietas in Johannesburg) which herself an Ninja use as props for their videos. They are smoking a fat joint. Fun times. She looks very cool with her fat joint. She is the leader of the pack here. A black guy walks past in the background and Yo-landi comments: “Only a nigger can wear a cap like that”. Now, for the American die hard Die Antwoord fans morons on Reddit, Instagram and Facebook: even if she said “nigga” or meant “nigga” and you think it is OK for a white person (specifically) to act like this – it is 100% not fucking Ok. You need to read more and with comprehension. If you think it is OK, please come to South Africa and say it to first black person’s face. I would love to film the reaction and sell the clip.
I would also like to hear from anyone who attended a DA show (outside South Africa) and were right up front by the stage. There is a pattern. They like to single out random fans in the front row at some of their sold out live shows to abuse them. Someone at the front always needs to be embarrassed by either Yo-Landi or Ninja. In the video below there is such an example and Yolandi makes a big scene at the end of their performance of Watkykjy (the irony is not lost on me). It reminds me of the scene she made when she lied about Andy Butler sexually harassing her in Australia. In the clip below she yells: “Vat hierie man hier weg! Hysie welkom hier nie! Vat hom weg! Fokof jou swart naai! Gaan vrek, jou doos!”. The fans keeps on cheering, because she is entertaining them with Afrikaans (the second most sexy accent in the world) and they don’t understand a fucking word she says. Allow me to translate: “Take this man way! He is not welcome here! Take him away! Fuck off, you black fuck! Go and die, you vagina!”. There is a reason she din’t shout this in English to the stage managers – they would have removed an innocent guy from the front of the crowd at Yolandi’s request because that is their job. There would have been severe issues and repercussions, so Yo-Landi chose to hide in plain sight with racist insults in a language only herself, Ninja and Hitek understood in that arena. That ppor “fan” didn’t understand a word she shouted at him, but look at his face – I am convinced he felt it.
Lastly, there is the day that Whitney Houston passed away and it is the same day Die Antwoord had a gig at Irving Plaza in New York. Remember when Yolandi played all dumb in her phone call to Ben? “Whitney Houston?” Aaaah-duuuuuh???
Lets refresh her memory: Below is part of the conversation which took place in the back of a cab between Yo-Landi, Ninja and DjJ Hitek as they turned into West 28th Avenue in New York on the 11th of February, 2012. Whitey Houston’s music was playing over the radio:
Tour manager: Whitney Houston died tonight. At 48 years old.
Yolandi: Right before our show in New York. What a bitch! How come she gotta do it then dude? Couldn’t she wait like 10 minutes?
DJ Hitek: Didn’t we almost have it all?
Ninja: To start the fashion week, dude. Do you want to hear weirdest news ever, guys?
Ninja: Yo won’t believe ne though. I didn’t wanna tell you. You know Terry Richardson?
DJ Hitek: Ja?
Ninja: He’s sitting like 2 seats away from us, Do you know who was sitting next to him dude?
DJ Hitek: Who?
Ninja: You’ll never guess.
DJ Hitek: Eminem?
Ninja: I sweat to Jesus you won’t ever guess, dude.
DJ Hitek: Just tell me.
Ninja: Whitney Houston
DJ Hitek: No ways!
Yolandi: She died at the Alex Wang fashion show dude!
DJ Hitek: Bullshit dude.
Yolandi: Oh my god. that bitch went fucked it up. How come she gotta do it then dude?
Ninja: There’s a photo on the net I saw on Whitney Houston sniffing crack out of Alex Wang’s ass.
Yolandi: No, out of his vagina
Ninja: Out of his vagina
Yolandi: Alex Wang is a freak.
Ninja: Wow, what a fucken weird little pixie fucken oriental motherfucking psycho?
DJ Hitek: Was she married?
Yolandi: Whitney Houston is dead, check how they announce it. They like “Whitney Houston is dead”. They like DJ mix it.
Yolandi: I can’t believe like Black Eyed Peas didn’t do a remix of it dude, you know?
DJ Hitek: Was she married?
Yolandi: Whitney Houston, no she was a whore dude.
DJ Hitek: No dude!
Yolandi: She was a crack cocaine whore.
DJ Hitek: Shame, fuck!
Yolandi: Dude I saw this live show with her and Mariah Carey. Mariah Carey whipped her ass, dude. She was so drunk she couldn’t even remember her cues, dude.
Whtiney had an active career between 1977–2012. Did she fuck up? Yes, like everyone else in life. Did she constantly try to fuck over other people’s lives and careers the way the predatory Die Antwoord still does? Hell no!
To each and every artist, promoter, event owner and festival organizer who ever worked with or booked Whitney Houston as well as Die Antwoord – you have some thinking to do…
