Komphela had a brief chat with the duo about where they were from and their message to all South Africans back home before ending the video.
As reported by Times LIVE, Carol Tshabalala also ran into the chefs and gave them a shout-out on her Twitter account as she shared a photo with them.
'So good to see my South African brothers in charge of feeding us at the stadium. Chef Akhona Baleni and team, we’re proud of you," she said.

While alcohol sales were banned at the stadium, fans can still get it at Fifa Fan Festivals, other fan destinations and licensed venues.
FIFA ban the sale of alcohol at World Cup stadiums 48 hours before the tournament kicks off in Qatar
Fans will not be allowed to buy beers while watching any game at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar after FIFA banned the sale of alcohol in stadiums for the duration of the tournament.
This decision from the world's football governing body comes just 48 hours before the tournament starts, through pressure applied by the Qatari kingdom's all-powerful royal family.
