Listeners give song 'Siya Kolisi' by Robbie Wessels the thumbs down
Popular Afrikaans singer Robbie Wessels has released his tribute to the Springbok captain Siya Kolisi following the Springboks’ successful 2019 Rugby World Cup campaign.
Eusebius says the song is cheesy but causes an earworm.
He adds that says some the lyrics are problematic.
The 'let’s look to the future and leave old things behind' line is deeply problematic.Eusebius McKaiser, Show host
The nice thing about Siya Kolisi is that the danger on a serious note is that he becomes a mascot for people who want to be ahistorical and not talk about difficult questions around the injustices of the past.Eusebius McKaiser, Show host
Callers weighed in on the discussion.
For me its a no no no as much as it may be coming from a good place but it's a NO.Sputla, Caller
Please send the copy of the song to Dr Mbuyiseni Ndlozi.Isaac, Caller
