The Gwijo Squad consists of a group of passionate South African sports supporters who travel the world to go and support South African teams.
Gwijo Squad members join #702Breakfast Bongani Bingwa to chat about what they do.
The squad was formed by Chulumanco Macingwane who went to Durban watch the SA vs Barbarians game, and it was empty.— Lusindiso Dabula, Member - Gwijo Squad
So he thought to himself, what a lost opportunity to get people who are not familiar with the sport to come and watch the game.— Lusindiso Dabula, Member - Gwijo Squad
From there, at the stadium he WhatsApped a couple of people and a week later we are in Soweto watching the same SA vs Barbarians game, and there is 35 of us, and we are singing.— Lusindiso Dabula, Member - Gwijo Squad
He says the group sings traditional folk songs at sporting events.
It is coming together through song and expressing our emotions or support through that particular occasion.— Lusindiso Dabula, Member - Gwijo Squad
Our purpose is to unite people through song in South African sport.— Lusindiso Dabula, Member - Gwijo Squad
Sijadu Mzozonyana, another member of the group, says they are using sports and music to bring together different cultures.
