Ninja, jacked Die Antwoord’s style from a group of street kids to whom he offered shelter on his farm, by plying them with drugs and alcohol.“Waddy Jones shattered the boys’ lives,” said Laubscher.
The boys — Wanga Jack, Mzamo Mzi, Aviwe Dikiza and Chelvin Engelbrecht — were members of a hip-hop crew called The Glue Gang Boys and stayed on Laubscher’s farm on the slopes of Tamboerskloof.
Waddy, now known as Ninja, at the time went by the name Max Normal.
“But people were paying $250 just to get into the concert,” he said.
Jack also claimed that he is owed royalties from an appearance on the Die Antwoord track as well as in the song’s controversial video.
Even more damningly, Jack claimed to have signed a contract with Die Antwoord’s then-label Interscope Records while still underage.
A student at the time, the 19-year-old du Toit would regularly stay on Laubscher’s farm, introducing her boyfriend Jones to the The Glue Gang Boys, with the pair striking up a friendship with member Wanga Jack and taking the teen under their wing. That’s not on.”“[Jones] used to come here and talk to us about our past and where we come from,” said one member.
But according to Laubscher, their friendship wasn’t so wholesome. “I’ve been to prison twice, and in prison you learn this language and there are these [tattoos]…he was obviously looking for this kind of image for himself.”In the report, members of The Glue Gang Boys allege that Die Antwoord would severely underpay them for their services as backup dancers for Die Antwoord’s live shows, as well as appearances on songs and in videos for them, with member Wanga Jack being particularly vocal.“First we were dancers for him.
“Waddy Jones sucked the whole of Die Antwoord out of these boys here on this farm,” he said. And then I became a DJ…And then suddenly I wrote a song with them,” said Jack.
He was paid SA0 to perform at a Die Antwoord gig, boosted to 0 after complaining to the band.
