South Africa has a vibrant, varied and sometimes incomprehensible, as this video evidences. No, Die Antwoord not a spoof, although I bet The Lonely Island guys are teary eyed in admiration. Imagine Vanilla Ice’s weedy cousin, dressed entirely from the Salvation Army’s 10p bin, and his vertically challenged girlfriend rapping with thick South African accents over bouncy “Next Level” European Techno beats, or possibly a nice bit of Donk. I don’t know if it’s good, but it’s different, and quite stunning – I just hope and pray they know about irony in South Africa.
