Die Antwoord duo, Waddy ‘Ninja’ Jones and Anri ‘Yo-Landi’ du Toit, have a lot of explaining to do after one of their adopted sons, Gabriel ‘Tokkie’ du Preez spilled the beans on alleged child abuse in a new explosive interview.
‘Die Antwoord groomed me’ – Tokkie claims in this interview
Fans of the South African alternative Hip-Hop group were left gob-smacked by claims made by Tokkie, whom they first met and fell in love with in 2010 when he appeared on the group’s I Fink U Freeky’ music video.
Tokkie, who lived in a dilapidated home in Vrededorp with his mother, Josephine and young sister, was adopted by the rap group and for years, he resided at their Pankhurst home, where it’s alleged he was ‘groomed’.
“They made me swear more and made me believe that I could burn people in hell and that I am the king of hell. They told me that I could bring darkness upon the world. It felt like my life was messed up, especially when it came to my family,” Tokkie told News24 in a recent interview.
Some of the shocking child abuse claims include:
- Ninja allegedly encouraging Tokkie to stab his older brother. Ironically, a similar storyline was explored in a music video the duo released in 2019
- Tokkie was allegedly encouraged to cuss, exhibit violent traits and bad mouth his biological family
- He and his little sister was allegedly exposed to nudity and their blood was supposedly drawn for anti-Christ rituals
Die Antwoord have yet to issue a formal statement in response to the allegations made by Tokkie. However, the group’s agent Scumeck Sabottka said:
“Die Antwoord don’t agree with Tokkie’s statements.”
Ninja and Yo-Landi reside in Cape Town and for years, they have neglected Tokkie who, by virtue of the law, is still their adopted son. Tokkie’s 14-year-old sister, on the other hand,, has frequented the duo’s Cape Town mansion.
However, it’s believed the teen wants nothing to do with her adoptive parents too.
Here is the explosive tell-all that’s seen growing calls for Ninja and Yo-Landi to face justice for child abuse.
