Siya Kolisi graces our TV screens as an actor

Our Springbok captain, Siya Kolisi is proving that he is a jack of all trades as he has been revealed as the face of a new campaign where he will be showcasing his acting skills.

The award-winning athlete is going to be the face of DStv’s new campaign for their Explora Ultra, which sees him appearing in a creative advert which shows off his acting skills. With Netflix being added to DStv’s new offering, the campaign sees Siya summoning international stars from the third-party streaming service to reflect the diverse content that will be available through the device.

According to the recent statement from DStv on Tuesday, Siya will be gathering a super crew of big names in a new creative campaign that highlights DStv’s launch of its next generation decoder, the DStv Explora Ultra which is expected to come out later this year.

In the second part of the campaign, Siya calls upon a group of international stars – all from popular shows on Netflix – reflecting the diverse content that will be available through the Explora Ultra decoder. In this version, characters from iconic shows Stranger Things, Queen Sono, Money Heist and Spenser Confidential are called to the mission.

Thabisa Mkhwanazi, DStv Executive Head of Marketing stated, “Siya is a metaphor for the new super sleek, modern DStv Explora Ultra and his legion of stars represents DStv assembling the very best of content it has to offer. This new generation Explora delivers on DStv’s mission to offer value, convenience and more choice to our customers for all their entertainment needs.”

In September 2020, Mzansi’s favourite rugby captain, joined South African bank First National Bank as their brand ambassador. This deal was negotiated with Siya Kolisi’s managers at Roc Nation. The selfless global icon, as described by FNB’s Chief Marketing Officer, Faye Mfikwe, he believes his values will work in favour of their cause as he is an iconic figure who gives selflessly.

Congratulations Siya the Bear!
