A lot of the time, we South Africans are not known for our over the top flashy antics. Sometimes, some of us are even described as “boring”. With every South African having a little “extra” hidden within them, one man went all out for his wedding proposal.

A South African wedding proposal in New York

25-year-old Shivani Govender went from being famous as the winner of Miss India South Africa in 2014, to being “that girl” who was lucky enough to receive one of the most romantic wedding proposals.

Being Miss India SA and a model when she isn’t too busy being a banking analyst, Govender would have been forgiven for thinking her name appearing on a Times Square billboard would have come about a little bit differently.

As TimesLIVEoriginally reported, Govender was out in the states on a work trip to New York. She was surrounded by her colleagues on the streets of Times Square when a flash mob got the group’s attention.

A group of dancers were absolutely breaking it down while wearing masks as one of  Govender’s colleagues captures the special moment on camera.

The shot moves over to Govender’s unsuspecting face as she can be seen using her cellphone to film the flash mob.

The front dancer then moves forward and takes off his mask to reveal himself as Tevin Govender, Shivani’s boyfriend.

Shivani quickly screams and drops to the floor in pure shock as Tevin approaches her. He helps pick her up and consoles her as she is overcome just by the fact that she is being surprised by her boyfriend in another country.

Seconds after Shivani can be heard laughing as saying “oh my word”, the camera cuts to a billboard across the street. The pair sees the “Will you marry me question” and Tevin drops down to one knee as the crowd around them now applauds and cheers with joy.

The crowd demands to know whether it’s a “yes” or not and Shivani laughs and nods her head frantically.

Check out the incredible proposal for yourself below.
