Africa is a continent rich in culture but civilisation and enlightenment has led to many practices becoming alien.
In this 21st century, men and women are seen as being equal and should be treated as such.
Legit.ng recently came across a now viral video of an African bride kneeling down to greet guests on the high table at her wedding.
The young bride practically crawled on her knees in her wedding gown to exchange handshakes with guests on the high table as her husband walked beside her to shake the same guests.
Kneeling in most African cultures signifies respect and many have wondered why the groom did not also crawl on his knees to show respect to the guests.
See the video below:
Since the video hit social media it has raised series of interesting reactions.
Many people lambasted the wife for the act and some even referred to her as being stupid.
