You can thank social media for this story. For several days, a short video has been circulating on Facebook and Twitter. In it, we see a man asking his girlfriend to marry him... in a KFC, in South Africa.
A scene that caught the attention of a lot of people who were near them, and filmed them, then shared the footage on social networks. The video went viral after it was reposted by KFC South Africa's Twitter account. The message was retweeted nearly 30,000 times.

A wedding proposal at KFC
This was followed by a wave of solidarity for the husband and wife to be, Bhut 'Hector and Nonhlanhla. The musician Zakes Bantwini, who is very popular in South Africa, offered to perform at the lovebirds' wedding, while Audi offered them a honeymoon trip.
But that's not all: Coca-Cola offered them free drinks and they received other gifts from brands, such as pans, as well as money. They also get to have their own spread in the magazine DRUM!
In an interview for the newspaper Sowetan, Bhut 'Hector and Nonhlanhla explained that they have been married since 2012 but that the ceremony was a disappointment for them. We bet their next wedding will be anything but disappointing!
