15 Minutes with a NINJA

15 Minutes with a NINJA

by Andy Davis / 03.07.2009

There’s a new sound blowing up in the Kaapse Afrikaanse hip hop community. Imagine some dirty electro 80s style beats and some simple-yet-catchy synth. Then throw in some of the filthiest and funniest lyrics you’ve ever heard, at the same time poignant and dripping with irony and you’re getting close to what Die Antwoord is producing, under the billing of a zef rap-rave crew. So rof are some of the lyrics that, frankly, you need to take a bath after listening to it. Other tracks are like nursery rhymes for dof gangsters about the perils of smoking weed, Dagga Puff and struggling to get naai’d, Scopie. Then there’s the hit collaboration with Francois Van Coke on Doos Dronk which recreates a Tom Waits inspired burlesque style drinking song with Ninja and Yolandi Visser from Die Antwoord dropping the verses hip hop style and Francois conjuring up all the moments of his drunken youth and belting out the chorus. It’s an ode to the dop system. A song that captures and distills to essence all the dronk verdriet weekends of a million Kaapse farm workers. It’s a visceral South African masterpiece of a song. And this is a very different take on Gangster Rap.

So we at Mahala thought it would be poignant to give Die Antwoord their 15 glorious minutes in the fabulous glare of the Mahala fame bulb. But NINJA, frontman of Die Antwoord, had a few ground rules first.
1. The interview had to be done over the internet.
2. We’re not allowed to mention any of their previous projects.
This is how it went down.

Mahala: What is Die Antwoord?

NINJA: Die Antwoord is the name of my zef Zuid Afrikaanse rap-rave crew.

Mahala: How did Die Antwoord come about?

NINJA: Die Antwoord was always there hiding in the dark waiting for me to find it.

Mahala: A song like Dagga Puff has a strong and direct social message and comes across as a kind of nursery rhyme – and it’s obvious you’re trying to make a point and change the habits of your audience, or at least make them think more. Then other songs like Doos Dronk with Francois – take more subtle, tongue in cheek digs at our alcoholic culture. Same with Scopie – taking on sex. Are you trying to make a point. Or do you just want people to dance to your music, get fucked and then go home and pomp?

NINJA: Yes.

Mahala: How do you feel when your audience does not connect with the meaning of your music – and thinks that some of these ‘ironic’ songs are intentional. As if Die Antwoord is to get fucked up and have sex and live to buy expensive kak.

NINJA: Different people find Die Antwoord in different things.

Mahala: You said in the interview with Griffin on the Watkykjy website that you like coloured people. From your music it sounds like you are coloured, but from that statement, I take it you’re not. Are you pretending to be coloured?

NINJA: Every poes is pink on the inside.

Mahala: Do coloured people find Die Antwoord patronising?

NINJA: I’ll ask some of my coloured tjommies when I go to Mitchell’s Plein next Thursday.

Mahala: Do you get negative feedback because people think you’re just jumping on this Kaapse taal rap to sell records?

NINJA: We don’t sell records. Die Antwoord $O$ album is downloadable for free off the interweb. (Click here to download Die Antwoord)

Mahala: Does Afrikaans music sell more units than English South African music? Is Die Antwoord a calculated business decision?

NINJA: Everything I do is strictly business.

Mahala: Is Die Antwoord making money?

NINJA: Die Antwoord maak dik fokken zak my blaar.

Mahala: When you talk about your gang $O$ you seem to use a lot of Cape Gang references, phrases like bloed in, bloed uit and other symbols in your style. Is that just bad ass gangster rap posturing. Or are you guys really connected to gangs in and out of prison?

NINJA: Ask no questions hear no lies.

Mahala: Word on the street is that your use of certain elements of Cape Gang culture has upset some gang members. How do you deal with that? Does it scare you that these bad fokken naaiers want to get you?

NINJA: My blaar, we all in the same gang.

Mahala: Lekker Ninja. Let me know. I’m really keen to do a good piece here. So please don’t just give me one word answers. Try and elaborate and show our audience who the Ninja is and what Die Antwoord is all about. If the question is kak, then tell me why and set me straight.

NINJA: No your questions was kak gevaarlik my blaar.

    What a self-caricaturing, uninteresting lout of a human being this guy is! From trite platitudes like “Every poes is pink on the inside”, to cryptic one-liners that betrays how utterly stupid he actually is… I concur with Anonymous poster #1 – giving attention to brain-dead fame-seekers like this is a waste of time.

    Here’s my advice to Ninja:
    Go get a fucking education and do something worthwhile with your life, instead of playing ‘gangsters’, setting a poor example to the youth, and channeling your childish throwback fantasies into your music.

  14. Anthony says:

    Actually I take back what I said
    It’s true what Ninja says: That every poes is pink on the inside.
    It’s weird how that line bothered me the most.
    I realized something today:
    When we hate someone, we are hating something that is within ourselves, in his image.
    We are never stirred up by something which does not already exist within us.
    I hope I don’t change my mind again and regret what I just said.
    Fuck I’m going crazy here…

    Sorry i didn’t mention Jack Parow, that was a bit of an oversight, but it’s not like Ninja didn’t play the major role in the song.

  49. Canada says:

    Most people here loved them until they discovered Ninja was just an act being played by a skilled method actor that is actually a husband and father and far more educated and well spoken then his persona of Ninja. Some people consider them a joke anyways, but the music is good, although a lot of the lyrics are too vulgar for anything near the mainstream.

    I think that if Waddy and his wife had just come out as themselves, without all the fraud they would be more authentic and people would not get so turned off when they find out the truth. They are very skilled actors I give them that, although Yolandi looks uncomfortable with the whole thing. The white trash image is not why they have become popular.

    It’s a shame. And a contrast to the way Jack Parow has come up as an artist. When I hear Jack rap, Im convinced once he leaves the studio, he is still Jack Parow when he goes home at the end of the day. Ninja and Yolandi change back to being real people when they get home to their daughter.

My fucking ass, their music is more original, has more attitude, and flavor than 90% of the shit this country (U.s.a) regurgitates daily on MTV and all the “music” television channels. Your trying to tell me this group with their unique style is less deserving of fame than that cunt Lady Gaga or that tone deaf retard Myley Cyris. Get real. It’s called a Stage Persona, look at Alice Cooper or Kiss, putting on a good show while playing original is how you make it.

  66. lets get real says:

    One of the major problems here in SA is that we are quick to shoot down artistic talent. All major artists are putting on an act. They have publicists and agents who advise them to uphold an certain immage anf when they go home, they go back to being ‘themselves.
    That entertainment and that is what people want. If you dont like them, don’t listen to them, its that simple, but the truth is, you cant help but watch because non of us know whats next.

    I think their lyrics and videos are incredible and I wish them nothing but success.

    They make me feel something when i listen to their music and they force me to confront issues that are not PC to discuss. At least they have the balls to speak their truth and I commend them for that.

Thanks all the same for posting those links so that I can better appreciate the awesome parody of Die Antwoord :D

    True there’s a blurry line in satire between clever/hilarious and snobbish/offensive but I commend people who challenge that boundary! Sacha Baron Cohen, Chris Lilley, and Die Antwoord FTW.

    anyone who has time to waste hating a satirical and awesomely talented band like this has got too much time and money on their hands, get off your internet asses and stop being whiney little bitches!!! They’ve got talent, they’re funny and they’re obviously having fun!
    this is what music should be, not fuckers who take themselves way too seriously and think they’re actually giving something to the world when they’re actually just an absolute joke made by multi-billion dollar companies who are just in it to make an easy (and dirty) dollar.
    OBVIOUSLY Die Antwoord isn’t for everybody (which is great, who wants to listen to the same lump of pop-dogshit over and over again anyway?!) They are (hilariously) offensive, but I absolutely love them and think they should keep doing what they’re doing!

    This whole fake argument is sort of confusing and sideways. Live music is created on a stage by performers interpreting something for an audience. Your experience of it is the only thing that’s “real.” I also don’t get the impression that Die Antwoord is a purely satirical act like Ali G. Maybe there are elements of satire in it, but it encompasses much more than that–iand t’s so much fun. I’d much rather see/listen to art made by artists than “real” art manufactured by the marketing teams that govern life here in the US.

    you’re all fucking retarded. the whole thing is a spoof, and it’s pretty damn funny in my opinion. you imbeciles need to stop making your seed available for the rest of our gene pool, so our future generations have no possibility of inheriting your incredible lack of wit
