Kanayo who is famous for his starring roles in movies said this on Tuesday on his Instagram page.
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.’
“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.
