Nollywood legend, Kanayo O. Kanayo has concurred with another movie veteran, Pete Edochie, who had said it’s not the culture of Africans to kneel while proposing to a woman, insisting that it was an act copied from the western world.
Kanayo echoed the same words according to a report by Pulse Nigeria.
He said he stands with Pete's notion that it is not right for an African man to kneel and propose to a woman.
“I’m an African and I stand with Pete Edochie on what he said. It is un-African today to knee down to propose to a woman. I’m an African to that level. Like we always preach it is not all you see on TV that you copy.
It is an Instagram lifestyle. It doesn’t stop you from living it. Live it the way you want. We are not also saying you must live with us in our stone age.
Because when we talk about this, some people who think they are more intelligent than us tell us we are coming from the stone age. Don’t worry, live your technology age but it is not part of our culture.”
Kanayo's statement comes just months after another Nollywood veteran Pete Edochie condemned men who kneel to propose to women.
He said kneeling to propose to a woman is a taboo.
