Anri du Toit (born 3 March 1984), better known by her stage name Yolandi Visser (stylized as ¥o-landi Vi$$er), is a South African-born singer known as the lead singer of the rave group Die Antwoord.
Yolandi was a part of the music and art groups The Constructus Corporation and MaxNormal.tv. The former was a project that produced a concept album/graphic novel while the latter was a South African 'corporate' hip-hop group in which Yolandi's role was portraying Max Normal's personal assistant. She appeared in several of their music/art videos.
Die Antwoord is a rap-rave group consisting of Yolandi Visser, Ninja (Watkin Tudor Jones) and DJ Hi-Tek (Justin de Nobrega). Visser cites Nirvana, PJ Harvey, Nine Inch Nails, Cypress Hill, Eminem, Marilyn Manson and Aphex Twin as musical influences.
Visser co-starred with Ninja in the 2015 film Chappie, directed by Neill Blomkamp, a fellow South African. Yolandi and Ninja also starred in a short film called Umshini Wam directed by Harmony Korine and released in 2011.
