Recently speaking with Exclaim! Die Antwoord's Ninja seemed to say that the South African Zeff group would reach an end twelve months from now, in September 2017.
"Die Antwoord dies on that day," he said. "It's all over. I feel beautiful about it. I'm not scared of the end. I'm a Ninja. I'm not scared of death." He went on to explain that the band would release their fifth and final Die Antwoord album before releasing a movie: "South African Ninja, It's a South African gangster film that has African ninjas in it.. Everything in the film is fictitious, like a regular movie, but it's hard and raw, and everything has some parallel to our lives, so it's got a surreal connection to everything."
On her Instagram account Yolandi Visser has hit back at those reports. "DIE ANTWOORD IS NOT BREAKING UP." She explains that the interview [sic] "twisted our words an took what we said completely out of context." She states that the breakup report as a "lie" and further clarified the band's position; "All we said was next year we will be working on our 5th final DA album & then continue to shoot a DA feature film. DIE ANTWOORD FOR EVA."
