When Bhut’ Hector Kansi decided to go down on one knee and propose to the love of his life, Nonhlanhla inside a KFC in South Africa, they didn’t know their lives were about to be changed.
The proposal video which garnered more than 674,000 views on Twitter, went viral on social media and KFC S.A started a search for the couple which was widely supported by Cricket South Africa, Pick n Pay, and social media users.
Announcing the news KFCSA wrote in a tweet:
“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”.
Several brands and entertainers have since stepped up and are donating and volunteering all the things they will need for their wedding.
