When Raymond Seema saw staff at his local Shoprite, in Potgietersrus, practise the Jerusalema, it gave him an idea.

The #JerusalemaChallenge has been popular among its staff, Shoprite says, with dances breaking out in stores around the country.

Seema invited his partner of 12 years, Dineo Mashilo, to come watch the dance.

“When I arrived there was a great atmosphere and I got so caught up watching the dancing that I hardly noticed Raymond next to me on one knee. When I saw him I couldn’t believe my eyes," said Mashilo.

The couple have known one another since high school, and have been together for 12 years. Both work at the Mogalakwena Mine outside Mokopane.

Watch the video Shoprite captured as Raymond Seema proposed to Dineo Mashilo while staff performed the #JerusalemaChallenge.
