Yolandi Visser began to manifest her talent as a singer at a very tender age, and she embraced it with open arms. And although it was not an easy path for her, she has risen to become one of the most famous female entertainers in the country. She started her way in music in 2001 and has been in the business ever since. She started with the music and art group The Constructs Corporation. Later she joined the South African “corporate” hip-hop group “MaxNormal.tv”. She served as a personal assistant to the group’s leader, Max Normal. Her romance with this group brought her instant fame and her popularity skyrocketed overnight.
After leaving MaxNormal.tv, she joined the South African rap/rave/zef group Die Antwoord. The Antwoord is a translation of the word “the answer” to Afrikaans and was formed in Cape Town in 2008. Other members of the group include Justin de Nobrega aka DJ Hi-Tek and Watkin Tudor Jones, also known as Ninja.
Together they thrilled a large audience and became very popular. Their first album entitled “$O$” was released in 2009. The album with titles like “Enter the Ninja” was an instant hit and was celebrated by young people who made up the majority of their fan base. The album also gave them a worldwide appeal, although their raps are more popular on Afrikaans. Antwoord has now produced four studio albums, two EPs and a mixtape.
Visser has a unique (to say the least bizarre) way of putting on make-up and dressing up for the gigs she is loved by her fans for. Still, on the main stage, there seems to be no stopping the superstar who has inspired so many with his singing. Yolandi Visser has sung and has also appeared in many music videos that have spread across the Internet.
