A South African couple whose marriage proposal at a KFC shop went viral two weeks ago are set to get married on 31 December, News24 reports.
The video showed Hector Mkansi kneeling and presenting a ring to his partner Nonhlanhla Soldaat halfway through their fried chicken.
The video was widely shared on Twitter using the hashtag #KFCProposal after KFC South Africa asked for help finding the couple.
Soon tweeters, celebrities and business started offering to help plan the big day, including accommodation for their honeymoon and performances at the ceremony.
A wedding planner tweeted that the couple had chosen her to plan their wedding:
