The tweet posted on November 7, read: “Please help us find this beautiful couple DM us with leads and there might be a ‘Finger Lickin’ surprise in store for you too… We love love.”

The netizens took no time in identifying the two lovers -- Hector Mkansi and Nonhlanhla Soldaat.

Kateka Malobola, the man who posted the original video, said the response to the KFC proposal video was phenomenal, reported Fox News.

He said: “It is not even about the video; it is about love. The man ... I’m not as brave as he is. He went down on one knee in front of everybody at KFC…. it’s genuine love.”

In fact, Twitter loved the couple so much, that the sensation around the video of the unorthodox proposal invited much more than just likes and comments.

Several companies such as Brands such as Coca Cola, Sun City Resort, Siwela Wines, Audi, Puma, and Huawei came forward to sponsor the couple’s second wedding and even their honeymoon.

According to a Sowetan Live report, Hector and Nonhlanhla had formally got married in 2012, with minimum fanfare. The groom was not satisfied with the ring he could buy for his wife either.

Therefore, he recently decided to make up for this and sought the help of the KFC team members to get the ring along with the food order.
