Mkansi and Soldaat met for the first time when the two attended a funeral in 2010. Since then, the two are inseparable.
Both of them have made a sacred promise for life in 2012, but claimed it was not their dream wedding party. Their wedding reception when it was done was very simple traditionally according to their budget. Soldaat doesn’t even like her wedding ring.
Mkansi then bought a new ring and gave it a surprise. The trick, Mkansi applied for Soldaat in their favorite restaurant, namely KFC.
“The work team at the restaurant was surprised by the request of Mkansi who wanted to re-apply Soldaat in a better way. Fortunately, the musicians agreed to help make that happy day a reality. We got the food order we ordered and when we saw the food further, Soldaat found the ring, that’s when I knelt down and proposed,” said Mkansi.
Without the couple’s knowledge, someone saw the application process and recorded it and uploaded it to Twitter. One of Mkansi’s friends then joked it by saying ‘South African men are so poor they are proposing their girlfriends at KFC’. At that time, Mkansi realized that his application was viral.
