Veteran Nollywood Actor, Pete Edochie has said that kneeling down to propose to a Lady is totally wrong.

In a now-viral online video, Edochie said because in Igbo tradition, this means that the Man is handing over the authority to the Lady, and so, she would become the head of the family.

He, therefore, called on elders to correct the children of this generation who are following the western tradition, stressing that he did not kneel to propose to his wife, yet their marriage has lasted over 50 years now with no one ever settling disputes for him and his wife.


Pete Edochie further said marriage in the Igbo tradition is when a lady gives her husband-to-be wine while kneeling down, adding that this tradition signifies that the man has been accepted by the lady as her husband.
