Anri du Toit (born 1 December 1984), better known by her stage name Yolandi Visser,[1] is the female vocalist in the South African rap-rave group Die Antwoord. Du Toit also has had a number of acting roles, including a self-styled role as Yolandi Visser in the Neill Blomkamp 2015 movie Chappie.

Personal life[edit]

Born in Port Alfred, South Africa, du Toit was adopted by a local Christian minister and his wife;[2] she also has an older adopted brother. Du Toit attended St. Dominic's Catholic School for Girls from age 5 to 16, whereupon she was accepted to Lady Grey Arts Academy.[citation needed]


Before joining Die Antwoord, du Toit was a member of the music and art group The Constructus Corporation.

She was a member of the South African 'corporate' hip-hop group MaxNormal.tv, in which she played the role of Max Normal's personal assistant.

Die Antwoord (pronounced [di ˈɐntvoərt], Afrikaans for "The Answer") is a South African rap group formed in Cape Town in 2008. The group was formed by du Toit, her then-partner Ninja, and producer God (formerly referred to as DJ Hi-Tek). Die Antwoord is part of the South-African counterculture movement known as Zef. The band released their debut album $O$ in 2009. It was made freely available online and attracted international attention for their music video "Enter the Ninja". After briefly signing with Interscope Records, in 2011 they founded their own label, Zef Recordz, and released their second and third studio albums, Ten$Ion (2012) and Donker Mag (2014). They released their fourth album, Mount Ninji and da Nice Time Kid, in 2016.
