Nollywood Veteran actor, Kanayo O. Kanayo has condemned the act of men kneeling to propose. He described it as being un-African and copied from the western world.
The actor expressed his agreement with Pete Edochie’s statement in an Instagram live video where he said that the practice is not part of our culture.
He, however, issued a disclaimer that his statement shouldn’t stop people from living their lives. He iterated that they should live it the way they want and they don’t necessarily have to live with him in the stone age.
“I’m an African and I stand with Pete Edochie on what he said. It is un-African today to kneel 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.”
