The video of a female student proposing to fellow female student in a secondary school has gone viral on social media. The video said to have been recorded in a school in South Africa no matter how cute it looks did not sit well with the social media users. 

The viral video shows a female student in school uniform shyly walking towards the middle of a courtyard where another female student in trousers was standing. The girl in trousers kneels and then proposes to the girl in skirt, who seems to have accepted the proposal as both of them were seen hugging each other. Surrounding the love birds were other students, standing in the courtyard, holding placards to help the female student in trousers propose to the one in a skirt.

Nigerian actress, Uche Nnanna sharing the video on her Instagram questioned why children in secondary school should be allowed to openly display love at all, let alone two girls engaging in a same-sex relationship. The actress wrote, "Hey guys, I have been so worried ever since I saw this video, not here to judge anybody’s sexuality though. But then really want to know when secondary schools started encouraging such activities like even a boy proposing to a girl not to talk of girl to girl." "I thought such acts are not welcomed in a secondary school someone should please educate me", the actress wrote.
