“It’s Wrong For Igbo Men To Propose To Their Women On Bent Knee” – Actor pete Edochie

Veteran Nollywood Actor, Pete Edochie in a recent interview, criticized the act of getting on one knee to propose marriage to a woman which he says is wrong and not a tradition accepted in Igbo culture.

The actor explained further that kneeling in front of a lady in Igbo tradition means handing over the authority to her which automatically makes her the head of the family.

He stated that marriage in the Igbo tradition is when a lady who is about to be wedded gives her husband-to-be wine while kneeling down, that it is the lady that kneels before the husband, not vice versa.

Pete Edochie also disclosed that he did not kneel to propose to his wife and they’ve been married for 50 years and still counting, adding that no one has ever settled disputes for them.
