Popular Nigerian actress, Anita Joseph, has said that her marriage to event host, Michael Fisayo Olagunju better known as MC Fish, has influenced her positively.

The actress, who recently celebrated her fourth wedding anniversary, emphasised that personal happiness should always come first.

She 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 tr!be, 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, Anita 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 curvaceous actress also stated that though many people did not give her marriage a chance of succeeding, 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.
