A video of a couple getting engaged at a KFC branch in South Africa has gone viral on social media. One journalist mocked them on Twitter, calling the guy “broke” for proposing in a fast food restaurant.
However, the internet will not have any of that negativity.
When the fast food restaurant stumbled upon the post, they immediately took action and offered to sponsor their wedding.
Netizens helped track down the couple. Eventually other big brands such as Coke and SA Audi among others joined the buzz offering free services for the couple’s wedding. Even the bands that will be performing on their special day are by famous artists.
Kateka Malobola, who filmed and posted the original clip expressed his delight in a follow up video at how things turned out for the couple.

MANILA, Philippines – Two years after winning the Miss Universe crown, South Africa has it again as the Philippines’ Catriona Gray returned the title to Zozibini Tunzi during the coronation night on Sunday (December 8) at Atlanta, Georgia in the United States.
The 26-year old model and beauty queen has been vocal about her struggles for education during her childhood before realizing her potential in modelling until finally graduating from college.
Tunzi eloquently answered the common question asked among the three finalists: “What is the most important thing you’d be teaching young girls today?”
Here is Tunzi’s winning answer:
“I think the most important thing we should be teaching young girls today is leadership. It is something that had been lacking in young girls and women for a very long time not because we don’t want to but because of what society has labeled women to be. I think we are the most powerful beings on the world and that we should be given every opportunity and that is what we should be teaching these young girls – to take up space. Nothing is as important as taking up space in the society and cementing yourself.”
Madison Anderson of Puerto Rico came 1st Runner Up while Sofía Aragón of Mexico was hailed the 2nd Runner up.
Tunzi is the third woman from South Africa to win the title with Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters in 2017 and Margaret Hardiner in 1978.
In 2018, Miss South Africa Tamaryn Green landed 1st Runner up to Catriona Gray in the pageant finals.
The Cebu Provincial Police has reported that they arrested 21-year-old student on Tuesday (December 3) for posting fake abductions by men in a white van on his social media.
Cebu provincial police director Colonel Roderick Mariano, on Wednesday (December 4), identified the fake news culprit as Brigs Granada Alvaro.
Mariano reported, Alvaro was arrested in their home in Sitio Taboc, Barangay Lo-oc, Danao City and was brought to the police station for investigation. He also said that the culprit has caused alarm to the public by posting fake news.
Danao City Police Chief Lieutenant Colonel Maribel Getigan said they are preparing the criminal case to be filed against Alvaro.
“We are preparing a criminal case for violation of the Revised Penal Code, particularly Alarm and Scandal in relation to (Cyber Crime Law), Section 6, Republic Act 10175,” Getigan said in a statement.
She also added that Alvaro was immediately turned over to the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO) for psychological examination.
“He is up for psychological assessment whether or not he is on his normal state of mind,” she said.
Getigan also said that the minor admitted to posting the falsified news.
“Alvar voluntarily offered a statement that the post was a mere false story and his intention is to give warning only to those young adults who are always roaming around the city during night time,” she said.—AAC
