Local man proposes at girl's father's funeral, leaves Mzansi with a lot of questions

In another story, Briefly News reported that a South African man went viral with a video of him proposing to his girlfriend. However, the venue was not the traditional scene for a proposal.

Instead of a romantic setting or special place that vibes with a heartfelt proposal, the man chose to bend the knee at his girlfriend's father's funeral.

The video has since gone viral, with people asking a lot of questions about whether the funeral was the right time and place for the man to pop the question.
