A proposal by a South African man to his fiancee in a Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) branch in the country has set social media abuzz and gotten a lot of people talking.


Bhut’ Hector went on one knee to propose to Nonhlanhla, “the love of his life”, and as she said yes, bystanders gushed and captured the moment with their mobile phones — as he put the ring on her finger.

Kateka Malobola, one of the observers, who captured the incident on video, took to his Twitter page to share the beautiful moment.

KFC thereafter got wind of the footage and on Thursday took to its handle to share the video clip and asked people to help find the couple.


Mzansi please help us find this beautiful couple, re batla ho ba blesser. DM us any leads, there might be a Finger Lickin’ Good surprise in it for you too. Batho ba Vaal re thuseng! We love love,” it wrote.

Shout out to @Kmalobola for capturing this beautiful moment and sharing it with us. Danki san”.

On Friday, the fast-food company took to its page to announce it had located the couple and will be meeting them soon.

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,” it wrote.


The announcement sparked a deluge of reactions on social media platforms as popular brands like Audi, DSTV, Coca-Cola, Standard Bank, Puma and many more also pledged to come on board and support the wedding.


Some individuals also took to the microblogging platform to promise their support to the wedding with gifts like cars, skin treatment and other forms of donations.

Meanwhile, the incident is currently at the top of Twitter trends.

“Well done to Corporate SA, this has to be the wedding of the year. ubuntu wins,” a Twitter user said.

If you want to know who South Africans really are, watch the reaction to the #KFCProposal, the flood of sponsorships (many from ordinary people) the incredible good will directed at this couple Witness how we celebrate #ShoMadjozi meeting John Cena.
