Some of the lyrics of "Die Antwoord" new single "Fok Julle Naaiers" have caused such controversy that Die Antwoord have split with their record label Interscope. In response "Die Antwoord" releases a video with Ninja telling us that DJ Hi-Tek is actually gay, that Ninja has several gay friends and that the lyrics are not actually offensive.
It appears that the joke is on us once again. What the real facts are I can not say. All I can say for sure is that the lyrics used by DJ-HiTek are taken almost word for word from statements made by Mike Tyson on January 22, 2002 at the Tyson-Lewis press conference.
Is this some kind of social commentary about violence in society? Is this political commentary about free speech in America? Is this simply some sort of joke on Mike Tyson? Is this just another clever stunt by Die Antwoord to stir up controversy and gain more media attention?
If you study the group closely you will find many instances of excellent marketing stunts so my vote is for the last one.
