It’s a sad day in the Zef. Die Antwoord, the former Hot Sluts from South Africa whose music always makes me feel like I’m jump roping over a flaccid dick in a gas station parking lot covered with Jenkem fumes, has lost one of its members. Die Antwoord’s DJ, Leon Botha, died a day after his birthday on Sunday at the age of 26.
Leon suffered from progeria, which is like the opposite of Benjamin Button’s and causes the body to age at rapid speeds. Leon was the oldest known living person with progeria, because most pass away in their teens.
Leon was also an artist and came up with the visuals that wrapped around my brain and didn’t let go in Die Antwoord’s video for Enter the Ninja.
Rest in peace, Leon. Your art will live on forever in the unlit part of my dreams that’s wedged in between the Fresh Prince of Bel Air opening credits and Meth Town.
