About

Die Antwoord (Afrikaans for “The Answer”) is a rave hip-hop group composed of members Ninja, Yo-Landi Vi$$er, Vuilgeboost, and Wanga (and notably having the former member DJ Hi-Tek) from Cape Town, South Africa. The music group became popularized through the internet for their series of controversial viral videos (the most notable one being “Enter the Ninja”).

They have become one of the most discussed music groups in South Africa, but through many obscure indie music blogs they have quickly developed a global fanbase.

The style of their music and videos is described as zef, a counter culture movement popular in South Africa. However, the term originally comes from Afrikaan slang roughly meaning “white trash.”

Wikipedia describes the zef music movement:

Zef is a South African slang term that describes a unique South African style which is modern and trashy and also includes out-of-date, discarded cultural and style elements.

Viral Videos

Die Antwoord seem to have become viral after a combination of this BoingBoing post, several posts on Buzzfeed, and some discussions on 4chan.

Discussion also increased after videogum exposed them as “fake.”
