Vlogger Eniola Hu is out with a new vlog.
I recently went viral for stating that my partner and I had a mutual agreement that I would not kneel for him submissively as a part of the Yoruba engagement ceremony. It set off a global conversation about culture and submission. I was asked who I was to change the longstanding culture and why I wouldn’t submit to my partner, being the man. Submission is towards authority. It is a word that should come nowhere near intimate relationships. And Culture is not static. People design it according to their needs. By nature, these beliefs were present during our traditional wedding in so many small acts. We found joy and peace in honoring who we were and touched so many in the process. I believe that the ones who lead with love will change their society one idea at a time so that this world becomes a place that serves ALL OF US.
