Cynthia Morgan shares encounter with Pete Edochie, reveals the Veteran allegedly forced her against tradition
Nigerian singer Cynthia Ikponmwenosa Morgan, aka Madrina, has taken to social media to call out Veteran Actor Pete Edochie following video of his handshake with Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, the Ooni of Ife.
The trending clip captured Pete Edochie, who holds a chieftaincy title, with some of the Nollywood stars walking into an event in which the Ooni of Ife was a guest.
Pete walked to the direction of the Yoruba monarch and extended his hand, shaking him in the Igbo traditional way, a move that sparked controversy online.
Weighing in, Cynthia Morgan, via her Instagram story, commended Pete for respecting the Igbo tradition while exchanging pleasantries with Ooni.
However, the music star, accused the movie veteran of disregarding other tribes’ tradition and beliefs.
Citing an example, Morgan shared her personal encounter with Pete in 2016 at Okrika, Porthacourt, where she claimed the Actor, who is a titled man, forced her to greet (Osiba) him, which is against her tradition.
According to her, as a Benin Lady, it’s a taboo for her to give a titled Igbo man like Pete Edochie an Osiba but the veteran made her do it against her will, hereby disrespecting Benin tradition in the process.
“I like the fact that Pete edochie’s tradition is being respected today and I hope he learns to respect other peoples traditions too moving forward.
I.E That Benin Women cannot give a common or a titled ibo man an “osiba” for no just reason. Unlike when he forced me to give him an osiba in 2016 in okrika precisely. Cheers”
