The Gwijo Squad is "a sports fans movement with the purpose of being a catalyst for transformation in South Africa sport and stimulating an inclusive involvement of sport fans in the country".

They travelled all the way to France to support the Springboks through song and dance.

The group posted a video where they were chanting celebratory songs ahead of the Bokke's clash with France and were even joined by captain Siya Kolisi.

Fans were shocked and happily surprised to see Eben was indeed the source of this chant!

Not only is he now an official Gwinjo Squad member, but supporters are asking whether or not he'll do weddings...

There has still been no conformation over whether the Springbok star will lend his skills to weddings, but hopefully, this was not the first and last time we'll be able to witness his vocal skills.
