Die Antwoord steals the show on YouTube for 2010 | memeburn.

For the year of 2010 South Africans watched clips dominated by music and politics on YouTube, with Afrikaans trailer-trash rap group Die Antwoord stealing the show as one of the most watched for the year.

Die Antwoord’s singles ‘Enter the Ninja‘ racked up a massive 8,6-million views, while ‘Zef Side‘ received 5,2-million views.

Other local videos that drew significant interest included ‘6 Second Poison’ by Locnville (667,170) , ‘Show Dem – Make the Circle Bigger (223,944) and Jack Parow’s ‘Dans, Dans, Dans’ featuring Francois van Coke  (419,100). – Nur Bremmen

Does Humour Belong In Music?

In 1984 Frank Zappa posed the question: “Does humour belong in music?” (though he used the American spelling of humor).

There has been humour in music for a long time, and it seems at the moment that there is resurgence of South African musicians taking a look at themselves and our society and embracing the humour of diversity.

Here are three examples:

Die Antwoord – Zef Side

Jack Parow – Cooler As Ekke

Deep Fried Man – It’s Complicated
