The three-member group consisting of lead rapper Ninja, Yo-Landi Vi$$er and DJ Hi-Tek, performed an hour-long show at the Bassline in Johannesburg on Saturday, and they've taken a new member under their wing - an 18-year-old street child known only as "Wanga".
"We are trying to get him to join our band, but there are issues with getting him an ID. However, we are working on that," said lead rapper Ninja, (real name Watkin Tudor Jones). Ninja has even given him his own…
