A Spaza Shop Job

Spot the references in this music video by Ollie Nhlabatsi for South African duo Spaza$hop Boyz. (We can think of some.)

In a way, postapartheid South African music culture is one big cut and paste job where one buys and appropriates, like going into a spaza shop where you take stuff off a shelf, you go home and cook it together. Spaza$hop Boyz’ first video for their single ‘Rehab Tony’ clearly rips off Die Antwoord and Spoek Mathambo. Sometimes the recipe works.
