Not super familiar with either, I heard the intro and was like wow! I can’t believe this young South African musician sampled this stereotypical 60′s explore Africa documentary as an intro. What a great example of Camp Africain.
Then the part familiar to me, where Hector starts to sing came on and I was a little disappointed. Not that a Nuyorican salsa record can’t reference Africa, but their use of stereotypical cues just seemed a little less… Funny.
So I decided that I really like Camp, and especially lately, I really get a kick out of when Africans do it. Not everyone can take themselves seriously. And I even do it myself.
Yet I’m always watching out for instances when people just use stereotypical cues to further their point without any deeper exploration of what that means to those people that they’re stereotyping. For a more in depth and long winded exploration check here: (Ping).
Otherwise, have a laugh (it’s okay!) and enjoy, these examples of great campy African comedy.
