“How Marriage Influenced Me Positively” – Actress, Anita Joseph Speaks

Anita Joseph, the Nigerian actress, has talked about how her marriage to hype man Michael Fisayo, also known as MC Fish, has contributed to her personal growth and made her a better person.

Anita, who celebrated her fourth anniversary with her husband, in an interview with Punch,  said: “Marriage has influenced me in a very positive way. I have learnt to be more protective and patient.

“What matters the most is one’s heart. One’s parents or other family members won’t be in the marriage with you, so it is basically one and one’s spouse forever. So, if one chooses someone from a different tribe, it is okay. One’s happiness comes first.”

On how she has been coping with the cultural differences considering that she is Igbo and her husband is Yoruba, she said: “My mother-in-law speaks Yoruba to me and I say ‘eshe’ (thank you). I have learnt a bit, though it has not been easy.”

The role interpreter also stated that despite the disbelief of many in her marriage, she was happy to prove them wrong.

“As regards my post on Instagram on my wedding anniversary, I wrote that some people and even blogs said that my marriage won’t last, but I ‘sent’ it back to them and their sisters. God’s grace has kept my husband and I together,”
 she said.
