Watch: Funny moment Siya Kolisi demanded Amagwinya in France

Two time Springboks Rugby World Cup winning captain Siya Kolisi recently showed that he still has a taste for Mzansi (South African) delicacies even while in Paris, France.

During the festive period, Kolisi and his family had a fantastic time exploring the city and enjoying their vacation.

In a video shared on social media, Kolisi was seen standing in front of a tuck shop, purchasing a popular South African snack called Amagwinya.

However, the lady who sold it to him appeared to be unfamiliar with the name that South Africans use for the treat.

Siya’s followers couldn’t help but react to the amusing encounter.

One commenter wrote, “β€œLol Siya πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Amagwinya! She looked confused 🫀 they will learn. Continue to fly our flag high Captain πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦”

This comment reflects the pride and support that South Africans have for Kolisi, who is not only an exceptional rugby player but also a cultural ambassador for the country.

Another commenter, Kez, humorously said, “β€œI’m pretending I was never here!” πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ that poor lady in frame 4 was over you guys.”

This light-hearted remark suggests that the lady in the video might have been overwhelmed by the presence of Kolisi and his family.

The video captures a fun and relatable moment that many South Africans abroad experience when trying to find familiar foods or cultural references.

It serves as a reminder of the significance of staying connected to one’s roots and embracing one’s heritage, even in a foreign country.

Siya Kolisi has become an iconic figure in South Africa, not only for his outstanding rugby skills but also for breaking barriers as the first black captain of the national rugby team.

He has been an inspiration to many, and his search for Amagwinya in Paris only further endears him to his fans.
