- South African musician, Duncan, proposed to his girlfriend in public and live on social media
- This stunt backfired though and the woman rejected him in front of everyone
- Although some peeps were feeling really bad for Duncan, others were convinced it was a staged thing
The social media streets are a rough place - when a person suffers humiliation, empathy and pity can be hard to find.
Musician Duncan asked his bae for her hand in marriage but she didn't want to hear about it. As soon as he went down on one knee the lady wanted to get out of the mall they were in.
Duncan was with his fellow artists from Thee Legacy as well as DJ Tira when he got shot down.
The whole thing was caught on camera and Tira even shared the incident live on Facebook.
But peeps are sceptical. They think the whole thing was staged as part of a publicity stunt to promote Duncan's new track.
To many, the fact that Tira - who owns Afrotainment, Duncan's record label - was present gave it all away. They also said the woman's acting wasn't very convincing.
Some even said that Tira didn't act very convincingly either.
Whether they were right or not, Briefly.co.za noticed that Duncan did use the incident in a post to promote his song.
Here's what non-believing peeps had to say:
"Afrotainment are marketing geniuses! Duncan recently dropped the song those guys are singing in the background. But ke.. qhubekani!"
"This was staged brother."
"Lol this looks super staged."
"This is public stunt, Duncan might drop something soon. Remember what Tira's son did to promote his song."
"An obvious PR stunt."
