Pete believes it is not part of African culture and it transfers authority to the wife as the head of the house, which should not be the case.

Reacting, Yul simply shared a joke with a meme showing his father supposedly behind a man with a slightly bent knee.

He wrote alongside the photo, “When you are about to kneel down to propose and you see Pete Edochie behind you.”
