Yolandi Visser

Yolandi

Yesterday at Future Music I saw Die Antwoord and fell madly in love with their singer Yolandi Visser. The South African probably isn’t everyones cup of tea, but I dig her crazy crack addict alien style! She has such a commanding presence on stage and she isn’t contrived, unlike another crazy blonde ‘fashion icon’ we all know *cough*lady gaga *cough*

Her band Die Antwoord are described as Zef Hip Hop, apparently Zef is an Afrikaans word, which roughly translates to the English word “common” its what the white middle class of South Africa describe themselves as. I think Yoldani sums is up pretty well by saying “It’s associated with people who soup their cars up and rock gold and shit. Zef is, you’re poor but you’re fancy. You’re poor but you’re sexy, you’ve got style.”
