Die Antwoord have done more than enough to ensure their legacy as one of the music world’s most unpredictable provocateurs, particularly in regards to their string of increasingly bizarre visuals. Now comes a bit of news that is truly monumental for fans of the South African rave-rap group: that all of their music videos have been a lead-up to an upcoming TV series. Watch the first teaser-trailer above.
Titled South African Ninja, the show is a culmination of all of Die Antwoord’s visual oeuvre, tying in with their recent claims that their upcoming album will be their last. In a text accompanying the trailer release, the band said that “All the ZEF videos and movies Die Antwoord have made over the last seven years were little clips from own TV series,” with frontman Ninja adding, “There’s a few things in my life that I’m fucking excited about… and this is one of them.”
Stay tuned for a release date for South African Ninja. Revisit Die Antwoord’s most recent visual for “Tommy Can’t Sleep” below.
