Kanayo O Kanayo Says It is Wrong For An African Man to Propose on His Knees

The legend made the statement through his Instagram handle on Tuesday, August 18, 2020.

According to Kanayo O Kanayo, kneeling down to propose to a woman is not part of African culture and was copied from the western world.

His statement comes barely months after his colleague and fellow Nollywood veteran, Pete Edochie made similar claims.

Pete Edochie went further to label kneeling down to propose to a woman as a taboo.

Kanayo O Kanayo said:

“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.” He said.

“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 O Kanayo’s statement is unlikely to influence many African men as it has now become a norm to kneel to propose to a woman.
