When next an Igbo guy wants to propose to his woman, he will need to think twice, following a recent submission from Veteran actor, Pete Edochie.

According to Pete Edochie in a now-viral online video, kneeling down to propose is totally wrong, because, in Igbo tradition, it means that the Man is handing over the authority to her, that is, she would become the head of the family.

He, therefore, called on elders to correct the children of this generation who are following the western tradition, stressing that he did not kneel to propose to his wife, yet their marriage has lasted over 50 years now with no one ever settling disputes for him and his wife.

Pete Edochie further said marriage in the Igbo tradition is when a lady gives her husband-to-be wine while kneeling down, adding that this tradition signifies that the man has been accepted by the lady as her husband.
