Nollywood veteran actor, Kanayo O. Kanayo has joined colleague, Pete Edochie to say it’s wrong for a man to kneel while proposing to a woman for marriage.
He believes it’s a style copied from the western world and doesn’t belong here in Africa. He said it is wrong for an African man to kneel while trying to propose to a woman he plans to marry.
The popular actor shared his thought on this topic via a post on his Instagram page. He stated that he is with legendary actor, Pete Edochie on this topic.
Pete Edochie made this known some months ago which became viral and got people talking. Recently, a viral video showed a man following Pete’s advice and was refused by his lady for not kneeling to propose.

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”
‘‘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 but it is not part of our culture” he concluded.
Kanayo made his Nollywood debut movie appearance in 1992 in the movie ‘Living in Bondage‘. He has since appeared in over 100 films as well as winning several awards.
