Siya's wife stirs racial storm over book
SHARE

REACTION: World Cup-winning Springbok captain Siyamthanda Kolisi has been dragged into a racial spat.

His wife Rachel Kolisi stirred the pot when she accused the publishers and writer of a new book on his life of “WHITE MEN benefiting off the back of a BLACK MAN”.

‘Siya Kolisi: Against All Odds’ was first published on the eve of the World Cup in Japan last year.

Now writer Jeremy Daniel and Jonathan Ball Publishers has produced an updated edition of the unauthorised biography of Kolisi.

According to the publishers, it includes all the games at the Rugby World Cup in Japan in 2019, and the tumultuous victory tour around South Africa when the team brought home the cup.

However, this has angered Kolisi’s spouse, who admitted that they have no legal recourse to stop the publishing of the book.

“Many of you will know I’ve beeeen talking about this, we thought the book had died out with the announcement of Siyas ACTUAL book told by him on the way!” she said.

“Until last night someone messaged me saying they can’t wait to read ‘the new book’ to our horror we see they have released an ‘updated version of the unauthorized book’.

“Siya has gone through so many struggles some, you might know about and some you have no idea. But the story is HIS to tell.”

It angered her that Kolisi has not benefited from this unauthorized book.

“I would appreciate your help on calling this out for what it is – WHITE MEN benefiting off the back of a BLACK MAN.”

She asked the publishers to stop printing any and all copies of this book, while also asking book stores and online sites not to support the selling of these books.

Today I’ll be delegating to #SaveSiyasStory There was a book written about Siyas life without his consent. It was released during the World Cup and we HAD a agent at the time who advised us not to take it further, and legally we had no foot to stand on. The book is written by @jeremydaniel51 and published by @jonathanballpublishers Many of you will know I’ve beeeen talking about this, we thought the book had died out with the announcement of Siyas ACTUAL book told by him on the way! Until last night someone messaged me saying they can’t wait to read “the new book” to our horror we see they have released a “updated version of the unauthorized book” Siya has gone through so many struggles some, you might know about and some you have no idea. But the story is HIS to tell. Siya has not benefited from this unauthorized book in ANYWAY. And I would appreciate your help on calling this out for what it is. WHITE MEN benefiting off the back of a BLACK MAN. We want @jonathanballpublishers to stop printing any and all copies of this book, book stores and online sites not to support the selling of these books. Remove any and ALL marketing material. Ps. Please avoid using the covers and title of the unauthorized book (it will only give it more exposure) Can you please help me get the word out. 🙏🏼
