The original video was posted on the Gwijo Squad Twitter page. At the time of publishing this article, it had been viewed more than 32,000 times.

The Gwijo Squad has rapidly gained popularity since making its first public appearance when Springbok captain Siya Kolisi became the first black player to lead the national rugby team last year in June at Ellis Park.

Since then the Gwijo Squad has gone on to add its voice at venues such as the Wanderers Stadium in support of the Proteas.

The group sings traditional Xhosa songs, contemporary hits and chants war cries, and has again promised to throw its support behind the Springboks in their matches in the World Cup in Japan.
