KFC X Karabo Poppy – Celebrating families across SA!

April 21, 2022

This month KFC South Africa launched another exciting collaboration, with one of South Africa’s hottest illustrators and local artists, Karabo Poppy, as they celebrate families across the country.

Having recently developed a series of Limited-Edition Karabo Poppy buckets, KFC is encouraging consumers to take part in some family fun. By sharing a picture of their family or “fam” via social media, using the hashtag #MadeForSharing and tagging KFC SA, consumers can win one created by the one and only Karabo Poppy.

“We are incredibly excited to be collaborating with the super talented Karabo Poppy. KFC believes that the beauty about family is that it comes in all shapes and sizes, with our famous buckets often being a reason to get together” says KFC SA’s Marketing Director, Grant Macpherson. “Karabo has brought that sentiment to life with these new Limited-Edition buckets, which we hope will entice fans to share a bucket and a special moment with those they love!”

Poppy echoes this sentiment: “This project is personal to me as it speaks directly to the love of families, storytelling and coming together to enjoy a delicious meal. I’m honoured to get to capture this in my KFC x Karabo Poppy Family Portraits Series. I’m really excited to illustrate and highlight the diversity of SA families, both the families people are born into as well as the ones they have chosen.”

So, as you get together with your friends or fam this month, share your moments via social media and stand a chance to win one of 11 unique Karabo Poppy family illustrations. The competition launched on the 14th of April and will close on the 12th of May. Winners will be selected each week.
