'KFC couple's wedding going to be bigger than the Sama Awards'

It's been a week where good news has overtaken bad in South Africa's news headlines.

From the Springboks' World Cup victory tour to Mzansi's love affair with the unfolding story of the man who proposed to his beloved in a KFC outlet, happy events have left South Africans smiling.

Comedian John Vlismas says even his hardened heart's been softened by the ever-increasing range of companies and individuals who've pledged to make a dream wedding happen for the couple.

We love deep-fried things, even weddings and so Hector and Nonhlanhla are set to have the fast food equivalent of a Gupta wedding in a food court.

As this lucky couple swears to be each other's Streetwise 2 until their lifestyles choices them do part.
