Nollywood actor Pete Edochie has condemned the trend of getting on one knee to propose to a woman. He stated that the tradition is western, wrong and not accepted in Igbo culture.
The actor is also of the opinion that kneeling in front of a lady in Igbo tradition means handing over the authority to the woman and that would make her the head of the family.
According to him, marriage in the Igbo tradition is when a lady gives her husband-to-be wine while kneeling down. He said this tradition signifies that the man has been accepted by the lady as her husband. Edochie stated that it is the lady that kneels before the husband, not vice versa.
He also said it is the duty of the elders to correct the children of this generation who are following this western tradition.
