Legendary Nollywood actor, Pete Edochie has opined that it is wrong for an Igbo man to kneel down when proposing to a woman.
He made this known during an interview with pro-Igbo platform Igboezue.
Speaking in Igbo, Pete Edochie’s translated statement reads thus: “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,”
