Popularly known as MC Fish, and his wife, Anita Joseph, are undoubtedly one of the most talked about showbiz couples on social media at the moment.
Prior to getting married, Anita was known for her sensual dressing and the romantic roles she played in movies. However, her husband has maintained that he wouldn’t limit her in playing romantic roles. He told Saturday Beats, “Before we got married, I knew her as an actor and I am okay with her job. Sometimes, when I watch those (romantic) scenes in her movies, I tease her and make her re-enact those scenes for me. My wife and I have very good understanding and she is mindful of the extent to which a romantic scene can go.”
Asked if ‘hype men’ were beginning to get the recognition they deserved, he said, “Yes, I think ‘hype men’ are gradually getting their accolades because at any event you go, you would see hype men. What stand me out from my peers are my style, charisma and personality. I believe I’m one of the most stylish ‘hype men’ in the country.”
Michael, who got married to Anita in February, maintained that his marriage has been sweet and peaceful. “Marriage is sweet, peaceful and also loving. All these are based on the fact that I married the woman I love and my best friend. She is my back bone and my entire support system. I thank God that I met her,” he said.
On how he has been coping being married to a fellow entertainer, the MC said, “I am coping very well. When other people find it hard to cope, I advise them to join forces. Throughout this COVID-19 period, me and my wife combined our resources to give out good content on social media. I always advise that when two people in the same industry get married, it’s advisable to combine forces for greater results.”
Michael also noted that he handled negative social media comments by growing a thick skin. He said, “There’s no other way to handle negative comments from social media than to have very thick skin. It is certain that some people would like one and some would dislike one. Either way, if they don’t talk about one, then one is a nobody. Sometimes when we see those comments, we laugh about them. Me and my wife know that people will always talk.”
