The spirit of Ubuntu has been making the rounds since the video went viral and perhaps will encourage others to tap into their humanity and spread kindness.

A video of the KFC proposal was taken and shared to social media by a surprised observer, identified by KFC as Kateka Malobola.

Our wonderful couple, bhut' Hector and sis Nonhlanhla, are truly grateful and overjoyed by your love SA.

But it didn't end there.

Fresh, real name Thato Sikwane, said he would offer a set for the couple - provided he had some time, while Bantwini offered a performance at the couple's wedding. "I'll call it love", he said.

"These honeymoon destinations look far".

"We would have never imagined that our love story would have touched so many of you".

The fanfare surrounding their unorthodox proposal garnered more than likes and retweets, however, as businesses and generous South Africans offered to help pay for the couple's wedding, honeymoon and gifts. "I took the video and sent it to a group that I've got on my WhatsApp to say "check this out" and I put it on Facebook and put it on Instagram and then boom!"

The company has since confirmed that the search is over: "South Africa, you guys are fantastic".

The love-birds thanked all their well-wishers in a statement to SowetanLIVE.E. Tsogo Sun, Puma, Total and Huawei have also agreed to get involved.

"I don't work so I didn't have enough cash to give wife Nonhlanhla a befitting wedding/jewellery but wanted to do something small", Hector said.

There began South Africa's very own fast-food fairy tale.
