The actor said it is un-African to do so, adding that it is foolish and that it is another way of copying westerners.

He said, “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.”

Edochie had in the beginning of this year raised some dust when he said that men who kneel to propose to women are ‘fools.’

“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.”

“We are trying to copy white people, right? I believe in the sacrosanctity of our culture, the essence and the core of our culture,” he said.

“The white man kneels down to propose to a girl, you know what it means? The girl takes over the family. This is why whenever you disagree with your wife overseas, you are kicked out and the wife takes the house. As a young man, you should be in charge of your destiny. Kneeling down for a woman makes you a fool.”
