Wedding sponsorships pour in for man who proposed to girlfriend at KFC

The video has warmed many South African hearts, but others took a swipe at the proposal, with some calling South African men 'broke'.

After trending video footage of a man on his knee, taking a ring from a box and placing it on his partner's finger at KFC in the Vaal, circulated on social media, KFC wanted to reward both the couple and even those who helped to find them.

The chicken franchise announced that it had found Hector and his lovely bride-to-be, Nonhlanhla.

But it didn't end there.

One of the popular media personalities who offered to contribute to the wedding was model and beauty influencer, Blue Mbambo.

Then companies started throwing in gifts. Someone needs to drive them there. Well, it is special either way because it is a cerebration of love that has moved many people. "South Africa, you guys are awesome!" the restaurant tweeted.

Offers of everything from beer to cooking pots to sportswear streamed in on Friday, along with thousands of pounds worth of donations.

The fast-food giant shared the video on social media and asked South Africans to help find the couple.

"I took the video and sent it to a group that I've got on my WhatsApp to say 'check this out!' and I put it on Facebook and put it on Instagram, and then boom!" he said in a follow-up video. "We will definitely let you know about our plans around the wedding", the couple reportedly said. "Working together like this to help wow", said another.

"Thank you South Africa". We'd love to treat them to a 2-night stay, including breakfast at any Southern Sun hotel in South Africa.
