True love doesn’t care about money. When you really love someone, it doesn’t matter where they take you to eat, what salary they earn, or what kind of education they have. Love is above all tangible things, assets, and extra zeros in the bank account.
However, not everyone is on the same page. Recently, one man in South Africa proposed to his girlfriend at a KFC chain restaurant. For most, it was a heartwarming moment worth capturing on video (we’re glad they did), while some saw an opportunity to drag the man down for being ‘broke.’ Well, the joke’s on this person who tried to roast the man in love, because the internet has come together to make sure the couple has the loveliest and fanciest wedding.

“SA [South African] men are so broke they even propose at KFC. They have absolutely no class, I mean who proposes at KFC,” the woman wrote. Anele’s tweet was met with people’s anger, who couldn’t simply believe that someone would drag a man down like for simply proposing to his girlfriend. As of now, the tweet has been taken down and the person behind it made their account private.
KFC South Africa reposted the video asking the public to help them find the couple
“Please help us find this beautiful couple, [we want to be blessers]. DM us any leads, there might be a Finger Lickin’ Good surprise in it for you too. [Vaal people, help us]! We love love,” KFC South Africa wrote in their tweet.
The couple was found and numerous international brands offered to chip in for the couple’s wedding
