How My Marriage To MC Fish Has Shaped Me

Actress Anita Joseph has revealed how marriage shaped her personality.

According to the Nollywood star, who is married to a hype man, Michael Fisayo, aka MC Fish, marriage has made her a better person.

During the week, the couple celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary.

Speaking in an interview, the thespian 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 actress also stated that though many people did not give her marriage a chance of succeeding, she was happy to prove them wrong.

She said, “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.”
