Nigerian feminist brags after refusing to kneel for her husband during their Yoruba traditional wedding

A Nigerian feminist has boasted of how she declined to follow the Yoruba culture of kneeling down for the groom during their traditional wedding.

As the society evolves, more women are becoming bolder in the fight for gender equality. Despite the criticisms it is faced with, the movement only seems to growing both in marriages and other aspect of the society. One among many feminists who fight for this movement is Eniola. The newly wedded lady took to the social media platform to reveal that she and her husband 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?

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.
