Say what? Social media users think Siya Kolisi is part of the Illuminati

Springbok captain Siya Kolisi is the latest star to be accused of being a member of the Illuminati.

The rugby star made headlines last week after announcing that he is officially joining Roc Nation Sports.

The sports management company belongs to hip-hop superstar Jay-Z. Manchester United's Eric Bailly and the LA Lakers' Danny Green are just some of the athletes signed with the agency. 

Siya is thrilled to be the company's latest signing. 

"The first of many more. Honored to represent my country in this next chapter with @rocnationsports. We stand together," Siya wrote on Instagram.

While many people were busy congratulating him on his big announcement, some put on their conspiracy theory hats and started taking notes.

Several social media users noted that Siya was making the 'Roc-A-Fella' label diamond hand gesture, which has become one of Jay Z's trademarks.

The gesture is said to be associated with the Illuminati. 

Jay Z and his wife Beyoncé have long been accused of being members of the "secret society" known as the Illuminati. 

They have been accused of selling their souls in exchange for fame and fortune. 

As ridiculous as the claims sound, scores of people believe the Illuminati is real and is busy doing Satan's work on earth. 

Beyoncé addressed the rumours in her 2016 hit single, 'Formation'.

"Y'all haters corny with that Illuminati mess," she sang. 

Other high-profile figures who have been accused of joining the Illuminati include DJ Black Coffee, Cassper Nyovest, Nomuzi ‘Moozlie’ Mabena, and even Nelson Mandela - thanks to his concert in aid of the less fortunate. The concert was named after Madiba's prison number, 46664. 

And now Siya's name has been added to the list. 

"Siya Kolisi has done a lot this year. Lead the national side to a world cup victory, ended racism for a brief period and even brought the illuminati back. He deserves to win man of the year," one Twitter user wrote. 

But not everyone is buying the Illuminati talk.

"When they say "blacks don't wanna see other blacks succeed, this is what they mean" all of the sudden Siya Kolisi sold his soul to #illuminati  for the springboks to win. If it was a white person we were not gonna say a thing. In fact. Futsekini nonke. Rise Siya Kolisi," one Twitter user wrote.
