Earlier this month, Mr Smeg took his shot at a chance to take the Queen Sono actress out to lunch.

The Twitter influencer and entrepreneur popped the question, “Hi @PearlThusi, May I take you out for lunch?” to which the actress replied, “Yes please. When?”

The National Lunch Date was a proudly SA moment with local brands Tshepo Jeans, Era by DJ Zinhle and Drip showing support for the date and adding that special touch.

Pearl and Mr Smeg dined at legendary DJ Oskido's Waterfall restaurant, Daruma by Oskido.

Ensuring that the rest of Twitter did not miss out on the National Lunch Date, it was broadcast live for the nation to witness.

Mr Smeg arrived to his date in style, driven in a Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Only the best for his date.
