Die Antwoord strikes again

2010-12-12 11:19

Die Antwoord, the three-member hip-hop band from Cape Town, has won another international award, beating artists such as Lady Gaga and Eminem for the top spot on the MySpace Top 30.

The Best Music Video of the Year is chosen by a panel of music experts and was awarded to the local band for “Zef Side” and “Enter the Ninja”.

Organisers of MySpace Top 30 motivated their choice: “Nobody else used the music video as effectively in 2010 as Die Antwoord. “These days plenty of acts seem to view the form (if they indeed view it at all) as a way to impress, rather than to engage.”

The MySpace award comes after “Zef Side” was chosen as one of the top 25 videos by YouTube and the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

The top 25 were chosen from 23?000 videos from 91 countries.

»? Die Antwoord are currently touring the country as part of the Sonic Summer Music Festival . It takes place in Durban on Wednesday , and will move to Stellenbosch on Saturday .
