A newly wedded Canada-based Nigerian lady identified as Eniola, has taken to the social media platform, Twitter, to reveal that she refused to kneel down before her husband during their recent traditional marriage, adding that she and her hubby instructed the elders at her wedding not to ask her to kneel down.
She wrote: “Speaking of submission, during my Yoruba engagement, my husband and I told the Alagas to not use that word or ask me to kneel for him. Everyone told me it wouldn’t be possible because, culture. But guess whose knees didn’t touch the ground?.”
