Capetonian anti-heroes Die Antwoord brought a healthy dose of Zef to the Late Show with Dave Letterman this week when they performed their latest single, Fink You Freeky. After the Lana Del Rey episode, they probably figured uppers beat downers for this kind of thing. As an Afrikaans dude, I grin when phrases like ‘ek’s ‘n lanie, jy’s ‘n gam’ enter the global vernacular, not to mention ‘tokelosi’.
