Seasoned Nollywood actor Kanayo O Kanayo has sparked a social media storm indicating that any man who kneels before a lady to propose marriage is considered an emotional blackmailer.
The actor who is concurring with similar sentiments raised by colleague Pete Edochie, wants such practices discontinued by these men who disagree and see it as a sign of love.
He wrote on his timeline on Facebook;
“Thanks for joining me in the discussion. SAY NO emotional blackmail by boys kneeling on the street proposing marriage. #marriagenobebyforce,”
Pete Edochie had earlier said “We are trying to copy white people, right? I believe in the sacrosanctity of our culture, the essence and the core of our culture. The white man kneels down to propose to a girl,” Edochie had opined.
He continued; “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. Kneel down before your wife and I’ll sympathize with you when she takes over the home.”
