A Canada-based Nigerian feminist has revealed that she didn’t kneel down for her husband during their traditional wedding, a thing which is required by the Yoruba tradition. According to the lady identified as Eniola, she and her husband told the chairmen of the event or the MC to skip the part that will require her to kneel before her husband.
Eniola who goes by the Twitter handle @Eniolahu also revealed her sister’s plans to prevent any use of the term ”ile oko” which means husband’s house during her own wedding which is coming up.
Read her tweets below.
“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?”
“My sister’s wedding was earlier this week and she also warned against using the term “ile oko” (husband’s house). Everyone is setting their house rules and removing the bs one act at a time. Looking forward to subversive “no wedding” family members lol”
