"Na una know✋. If she likes, she should prostrate inside gutter and collect it, she wouldn’t be used as a yardstick for others."
"Let it be known. This right here is wrong."
"Na boyfriend wey calm down we go kneel down for."
"Nigerian men think that marrying a woman is doing her a favour. Dafuq is ‘ na girl wet calm down dey collect ring’?"
"This girl has just submitted herself to a marriage of slavery."

It is no news that the Nigerian society is regarded as a patriarchal one, and this often reflects in our ideology about equality and what the position of women in society should be.
Veteran Nollywood actor, Pete Edochie, is certainly one who embodies patriarchy and often speaks his mind regardless of whose ox is gored.
In a video that trended, he once again spoke about marriage proposals.
According to him, any man who kneels down to propose to a woman is a fool. Explaining his reasons, he stated that not only is it a borrowed practice from the western countries, kneeling down signifies handing one's destiny over to a woman.
