A Nigerian woman has revealed she didn’t kneel for husband during their Yoruba traditional wedding.
The Canada-based Feminist, identified as Eniola revealed that she didn’t kneel for her husband, during her traditional wedding, as is common practice.
Taking to her twitter account: @Eniolahu, she wrote;
“Speaking of submission, during my Yoruba engagement, my husband and I told the Alagas to not use that word or ask me to kneel for him. Everyone told me it wouldn’t be possible because, culture. But guess whose knees didn’t touch the ground?”
“My sister’s wedding was earlier this week and she also warned against using the term “ile oko” (husband’s house). Everyone is setting their house rules and removing the bs one act at a time. Looking forward to subversive “no wedding” family members lol”

As expected, this did draw a lot of reactions on twitter, see some responses below;
@EniolaHu – Men are out here saying that the man prostrates too but the man prostrates to the bride’s parents not the bride. The bride however kneels for the man. It isn’t the same thing. Some of y’all are just being deliberately obtuse.
@HenrikNd – How will you choose some from culture and abandon some?? Anyway bible say it all.
Wife material is hard to get. If you can’t kneel before me, the marriage will be canceled right there.
@kehinde_bb – I don’t understand most of what you wrote due to your terrible composition. However, the portion I managed to grasp was about you cancelling our hypothetical marriage if I refused to kneel to you. I have no interest in a relationship with a person like you, I would rather die
@HenrikNd – Your husband think he got a wife, not knowing he just brought his fellow man in. Bitch feminist 😂😂
What do you think guys?
