'Yes, I love my language; Igbo. My dear, I even wanted to marry from Nkwerre in Imo State my mummy’s side. I never imagined or dreamt or thought of marrying a Yoruba man. Haaaa how na? I feel they are too loud but then you know how God works, boom boom I met Fisayo. I asked God really? A Yoruba man? How come? And so on and now it’s been 5years of knowing him and no regrets whatsoever."
It is not news that the actress has been facing a lot of backlashes due to her public display of affection with her husband, yet she remains unshaken.
Asked what keeps her strong, she said:
"I remain unshaken knowing that I’m not hurting anyone and I’m doing what is right. I want to keep showing that marriage is beautiful no matter what they say. I also know that a lot of these people on the internet a lot of them are bitter trolls. I owe no one an apology. I am just being me and enjoying my marriage."
A lot of celebrity marriages are packing up but Anita and MC Fish have indeed shown that it is possible to be happily married as a celebrity. The actress revealed what she does differently to secure her happy place.
"Celebrity marriage is not easy a lot of pressure out there but you must kwechiri (stubborn). I don’t really do anything special to maintain my marriage but I put God first. I also knew what I wanted before going into marriage. What my mother taught me about marriage is still embedded in me. I have a lot of marriage tips that I've given out for free to some of my ardent followers, but now I want to sell those tips (laughs). My mum taught me to shut up when hubby is talking and not to talk back especially in arguments; two captains can’t be in one ship for that ship to move smoothly. Well, it is not like you can’t say your piece but there is a time to pause and let him talk. These things are not easy but for two to work you must agree."
