BEVERLY HILLS, August 19, (THEWILL) – Another Veteran Nollywood actor, Kanayo O Kanayo, has joined the debate over the practice of men kneeling down to propose to their prospective life partners.
THEWILL recalls that Pete Edochie had also called men who kneel to propose to their women as “idiots”, saying it is against traditional African norms and values.
Pete Edochie had said: “We are trying to copy white people, right? I believe in the sacrosanctity of our culture, the essence and the core of our culture. The white man kneels down to propose to a girl.
“You know what it means? The girl takes over the family. This is why whenever you disagree with your wife overseas, you are kicked out and the wife takes the house.
“As a young man, you should be in charge of your destiny. Kneeling down for a woman makes you a fool. Kneel down before your wife and I’ll sympathize with you when she takes over the home.”
Also, Kanayo O Kanayo also expressed similar views via his Instagram page writing: “Thanks for joining me in the discussion. SAY NO emotional blackmail by boys kneeling on the street proposing marriage. #marriagenobebyforce.”
