Veteran Nollywood actor, Pete Edochie, has attributed rising domestic violence against women and broken marriages to feminism.
Speaking in an interview with BBC Igbo, the actor stated women are at fault in most cases of domestic violence.
He lamented modern women don’t know how to do basic things and maintain their husbands happy.
This, he stated, makes some males unable to control their feelings and beat their wives.
Edochie however stated he doesn’t ascribe beating women as a result of his mom was never beaten and he has never beaten his wife.
He additional acknowledged a few of the modern developments, which the African men indulge in, were non-existent during his time like kneeling to propose to a woman.
He insisted the African tradition doesn’t allow for worshipping of the ladies just like in the western world.
He reiterated the fact that he isn’t a lady-hater however one who adheres strongly to tradition, especially the African culture.
