South African "Next Level Rap-Rave Krew" Disturbs, Confuses

It is probably a little too early in the day to share this one with you, but I have been puzzling over it since dawn and am ready to be rid of it. I'm not quite sure what's going on in today's South Africa, but apparently it involves rapping ninjas, protection-needing butterflies, and progeria sufferers. I'll let Die Antwoord's lead ninja explain it himself: "To sum it all up, in this place, South Africa, you get a lot of different things: whites, coloureds, English, Afrikaans, Xhosa, Zulu, watookal-I'm like all these different things, all these different people, fucked into one person."

I'm South African, and a couple of different things fucked into one person, but I have no idea what he means by 'watookal' (Unless he's saying 'baSotho')

I kept expecting him to transform into an alien.

Thank God it wasn't just me.

Right! I saw a really cool documentary about that recently.

Ahghreaghet! The creatine-fueled, progeria-suffering DJ will haunt my dreams!

"I can't believe I'm rapping in the coolest song I've ever heard!"

Just finished reading an article about the FLDS. I was worried about their genetic problems. Based on this video, crazy multiple-wife-having Arizonans have nothing to worry about compared to South African whites.

Another South African here.
Holy shitcakes – don't know what to say about this. Disturbing. Ugly.

Here's a video by another up-and-coming SA 'Afrikaans' rapper, Jack Parow, also from the Cape. A bit more fun…

Ps: watookal means 'whatever'.

pps: in case anyone's still following this thread…the guy here also goes by the name of Max Normal, a well known south african electro muso and performer.
