Yes, says Lize, even those little white lies are hurtful and can destroy relationships. “Hou op Lieg” is one of the many colorful and rather intense tracks on her latest album '5'. It is an Afrikaans hip-hop track rap song and through it, Lize emphasizes how annoying lying friends and friends can be.
“It speaks to lies on many levels. Little white ones like ‘I am outside’ when you are nowhere near. Lies like, ‘I will be there for you’ when you were never planning to show up. Lies like quitting this vice but it never ends. Unending daily lies and then the big ones we all lie to ourselves,” said Lize.
In Afrikaans, which Lize calls a “lekker uitskel” language perfect to scold people properly she hits hard on those that lie too much and too easily.
