The All Blacks have dominated world rugby for a number of years and some credit their amazing success to their intimidating war dance.

Opposition teams have tried lining up against the haka in unison, walking towards the NZ players and staring them down or even tried to act disinterested.

None of these psychological ploys lead to much success as the All Blacks generally outplay most opponents.

However, following Saturday’s epic encounter, many are crediting the Springbok team success to the unexpected house track played just prior to kick-off.

Mgarimbe’s smash hit, “Sister Bettina”, caught many by surprise and Sowetan Live have revealed it to be the brainchild of Baydu Adams (Programmes Manager at Algoa FM) and Dj Denver Apollus.

Adams penned an open letter to SA rugby calling for them to play an unexpected song to throw the mighty All blacks off. To his surprise, SA rugby welcomed the idea and agreed.

Adams declared ” I was so shocked and I realised I had to put it on video to record that it really happened. The DJ did say he'd have to find a clean version of the song‚ which he did. It was a fun thing that we did and next thing‚ they were playing the song.”

Meanwhile Dj Apollus said "There were pockets of people whose expressions were: What is this? But you could see some of the crowd realised the song was awesome and also derived some sort of answer to the Haka.”
