He picks up the cards that had been dropped on the carpet after each corresponding answer to the quiz questions he'd asked were called correctly.
The man went on to reveal the words "will you marry me?", much to the stunned amazement of his girlfriend who shakes uncontrollably as she seemingly tries to make sense of the situation.

"One of the best marriage proposals I've seen."

"This doesn't work if u are black South African. Uncles have long gone to her home, membesos have been done. But it don't mean we can't be romantic and creative about it."
"Why she shaking like that though?"
"First of all, I’m Zulu, ibutho… and you just made me cry with this video."

Man pulls show stopper as he proposes
Legit.ng previously reported about how a man pulled a lovely surprise proposal on his girlfriend who works as a nurse at a hospital.
The lovely moment shared by a journalist Adeola Fayehun on Instagram showed a lady, flanked by her colleagues, in a theatre room outfit.
While the medics interacted, a man appeared through the entrance door and immediately burst into Ed Sheeran's hit love song titled Thinking Out Loud.
The man's sonorous and melodic rendition caught the attention of the medics as well as his nurse girlfriend who it was meant for - she had first remarked that it was embarrassing.
