Earlier today, Briefly.co.za reported that social media users really live for drama. Siya Kolisi and the Springbok team returned to South Africa after their victory over England in the Rugby World Cup and peeps are stirring the pot after a brief exchange between him and Miss SA, Zozibini Tunzi.
Siya is the man of the moment right now and everyone wants to show him their support and love - something that many South Africans think Rachel, his wife, won't be comfortable with.
She was 'warned' to keep her cool not so long ago. After a short video clip was shared by Zozi, Twitter users are already predicting Rachel's response - saying she'll be jealous of the way Siya allegedly gave the beauty queen a 'look'.
