KFC “would you marry me”proposer-turned celebrity tracked down

SABC News has traced the man that Mzansi has been searching for.

In a 37-second-long video posted on Twitter, a man is seen kneeling down in front of the woman he proposes to in a KFC store. The proposal was done on Wednesday, in full view of KFC patrons in the Vaal – with several people capturing the moment on video.

In a Tweet, KFC appealed to the public to help them track down the happy couple – with Cricket South Africa, Pick n Pay and Total being among companies joining in the search.

The man, Hector David Mkasi, says he had no idea the country was searching for him, and is excited that some firms are offering gifts to him and his wife-to-be.

“Oh my god! I’m more excited! You know, I’m so so happy!!! I’m so happy I can jump and touch the sky! Oh Jesus! I’m so happy! Thank You! I’m going to KFC now!”, Hector excitingly expressed himself.
