Nollywood veteran actor, Pete Edochie has condemned the African men kneeling down to ask a woman to marry them while proposing.
According to Pete Edochie, kneeling to propose to a Lady is totally wrong because it means you are transferring authority to the woman and she becomes the head of the family. He emphasized that the woman is the one that is required to kneel while giving her husband wine at the wedding not vice versa.
It is not our lifestyle.
Kneeling before a girl in Igbo tradition means handing over 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 that signify? That the man has accepted as the husband of the lady.
It is a lady who kneels before the husband, not vice versa
So it is our duty to correct the children of this generation.
I have lived with my wife for 50 years
