ABOMINABLE! "Men, Stop Kneeling Down To Propose" - Pete Edochie | See His Reasons


Jan. 24, 2020

Veteran Nollywood actor, Pete Edochie has opined that it is abominable that a man should kneel when proposing to a woman. 
Edochie who revealed the above in a recent interview said that it was against Igbo tradition. The reason being that kneeling to propose signifies handing over the leadership mantle that the man is supposed to hold and giving it to the woman. 
"Kneeling down to propose to a woman is totally wrong, it is not our lifestyle. Kneeling before a girl in Igbo tradition means you are handing over the authority to her. She becomes the head of the family. Marriage in Igbo tradition is when a lady gives her husband to be wine while kneeling down. What does it signify? That the man has been accepted as the husband of the lady. It is the lady who knees before the husband, not vice versa," he said.
There has been a lot of reactions since the video where the veteran actor expressed his views on the men kneeling to propose to a woman.
