Inspired, no doubt, by a good old love story, South African social media users are rallying behind a couple after a video of their proposal at a KFC outlet went viral.
On Thursday afternoon, KFC posted a video calling for people to help find them.
The video, which has been viewed more than 500,000 times has caused a buzz on social with several people and companies pledging to contribute towards the wedding.
Twitter user @alphi_s posted on Friday morning that he had found the couple and would meet them.
Social media, especially Twitter has since been flooded with comments about the viral KFC video, looking for the couple and now having found them and planning a wedding.
Donations are flooding in with some offering to DJ at their wedding and others offering to make their invitations. Audi South Africa has offered to drive the couple anywhere they need to go, while Castle Lite has offered to pay for the couples honeymoon. Tsogo Sun, Puma, Total and Huawei have also agreed to get involved.
Tweeps are beside themselves and happy that the KFC viral video has helped to make Twitter a supportive place. Many have commented that they love it when South Africa works together and it’s a beautiful thing to see.
South Africa, you guys are amazing! We’ve found the beautiful couple, and looks like we’re having a #StreetwiseWedding y’all 🥳 We’re meeting Bhut’ Hector and his lovely bride Nonhlanhla we’ll keep you posted. #KFCProposal
