Famous Nigerian author, Reno Omokri has charged men to be more creative about proposing to their fiancee.
In a post via his Twitter handle, Reno advised men not to go on their kneel in crowded malls to propose.
According to him, there is the need for men to be more creative and not reactive while going about proposing adding that many girls accept such proposal out of embarrassment.
The tweet reads “Dear men, Don’t go on one knee in crowded malls and propose. It is getting old. Be creative, not reactive. Many girls are accepting out of embarrassment. Bold ones are disgracing you. Propose in private, to be sure it is love, not embarrassment”
How To Propose
You will recall that Veteran Nigerian actor, Pete Edochie had earlier talked about how to propose adding that Nigerian men who kneel to propose are compound buffoons and not just a fool.
He made this known in a viral video when he was asked to speak on how to propose and he kicked against men going down on their knees to do so.
According to the 72-year-old actor, Nigerian men who go on bended knees to make marriage proposals are simply copy cats of culture prevalent in the Western World.
Edoche said he does not believe the practice signifies neither love nor civilisation.
Meanwhile, many Twitter users reacted differently to the actor’s stands on how best to go about proposing to a lady in line with the Nigerian Culture and belief.
While many commended the veteran actor for speaking what they described as the truth, others kicked against his opinion which they tagged as the reflection of the era he grew up in.
