TikToker’s dragged “South Africa’s royal family” Siya, Rachel and the rest of the family for their lack of “coordination” in a dance posted on the platform on 17 June.


Springbok captain Siya Kolisi and his family attempted a TikTok dance via his wife Rachel’s TikTok account. The couple are seen alongside their two children – Nicholas and Keziah and Siya’s siblings Liyema and Liphelo.

Siya and his siblings share a mother who unfortunately passed away in 2009 which left Liyema and Liphelo bouncing from orphanages to foster homes for years before the couple were financially stable enough to adopt them in 2014.

Liphelo seems to most coordinated doing the dance while Rachel seems to catch on the steps towards the end. The rest of the family members appear to be doing their own dances in the most adorable way! Take a look…
