Earlier today, everyone’s a timeline in South Africa with the KFC Proposal.
A lot of celebrities in South Africa decided to lend a helping hand to the couple with quite a number of artists offering to perform at the wedding. Celebrities were not the only ones who were adding to the wedding with several local brands fighting for the slot to sponsor the wedding.
AKA decided to go on Twitter and share his thoughts on the matter and went against the masses on social media. Whilst a lot of people were supporting the notion, AKA went on to bash the brands that are pouring money into the wedding saying they could’ve poured money into paying student debts.
“If only brands could come together like this to pay student debt. Seems like they suddenly have money,” tweeted AKA. The rapper received a lot of support from his fans whilst some people saw his comments as just negative.
As if they owe you something. Just celebrate with the couple or start your own cause …. riding on the wave?

Other brands that have come on board are Audi, Lexus for travels; Airlines Mango and Kulula have both pledged to fly the couple to their desired honeymoon destination – whichever one of TsogoSun or Sun City, among others, they choose.

It’s not just the wedding and honeymoon that’s been thought about, the matter of lobola is also taken into account, with Jameson offering to send a case of their Select Reserve, and Sizwe Dhlomo offering two of his cattle.

All of this of course depends on the happy couple, and whether they choose to accept the generous gifts. It’s their happy day after all! South Africa just seems happy to be a part of it.

We didn’t want to steal the happy couple’s shine but since some of you have asked, we’d like to offer them a clean slate.

The wedding and the honeymoon seems to be sorted so I'll offer them an all expenses trip to #FillUpRoyalBafokeng if they are keen to attend on the event on 15th of December. #KFCProposal https://t.co/X2vK2RxqIa
