Nando's recently left many South Africans in stitches after releasing their new advert, throwing shade at a fake story about the 'Ekurhuleni 11'.

“As you can see, South Africa is riddled with scams and fake news, like this story that happened in a place called Ekurhuleni of a couple who announced that they are expecting 11 babies. 11 kids! That's unaffordable,” says the narrator.

At the core of the advert is the fast-food chain's new R49 prego & chips meal.
