Rachel Kolisi Slams Revised Siya Biography Published Against His Consent. Rachel Kolisi has always been in her spouse’s corner. This time around she is infuriated with one author who went on to publish an unauthorized book about Springbok captain Siya Kolisi.
Against All Odds’ was authored by Jeremy Daniel and tells Kolisi’s life story, from growing up in rural Eastern Cape to becoming the first black captain of the Springboks. This is not the first time Rachel has spoken about the book, and she and her husband though the book died out when it was announced that Siya’s legitimate book was on the way.
“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.
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.
