South African rap duo Ninja and Yolandi Vi$$er return to Luxembourg with third album Donker Mag (dark power) under their belt.
Renowned as heroes of the “zef” lifestyle, die Antwoord’s live shows have rap fans slavering away over the Ninja and Yolandi Vi$$er’s raw power and authenticity. Their dynamic and abrasive double act that can truly electrify an audience and their visual style is always brazen and unique.
The self-styled “futuristic rap-rave crew” from South Africa have become a worldwide phenomenon thanks to their challenging and aggressive lyrics, just as cheap, slumming it hip-hop should be. “Zef is, you’re poor but you're fancy. You’re poor but yore sexy, you’ve got style,” says Yolandi--although some reviewers have labelled the style as unashamedly unsubtle and crass.
Indeed, new album “Donker Mag” (dark power) has received criticism for lazily regurgitating familiar sounds and themes and many fans and critics are nostalgic for the raw power of debut album $O$ and early singles such as ‘Enter the Ninja’.
