How has the year been for you?
The year has been great by his grace. It has been awesome and all I can do is to thank the Lord for keeping me this far.
You seem to have bounced back into the industry; why the sudden break initially?
Music made me take a break.
I read sometimes ago that you have ‘repented’ and no longer flaunting your cleavages, how true is that?
I repented long time ago. I wear what’s proper now, I just feel it’s needed.
You have been a topic amongst news people as regards marriage issues etc. How do u handle critics?
I handle critics well and I adjust… No time is too late to learn.
Any plan to marry soon or join the trend of baby mamas?
Your questions are very funny. I can decide not to answer you. But I choose to. Marriage comes when it comes. I am not bothered about it. And if by the way, if he shoots and it becomes a pregnancy then it’s congratulations to us.
What’s your kind of man?
My kind of man must be spirit filled, one that fears God. There nothing more attractive to me than a man that loves God. He must make me laugh. He should have a good sense of humour. Also a dresser and must smell good.
Can you marry an actor or a comedian?
Yes I can. I don’t like loud men. I don’t like a man that picks or blows his nose anyhow especially in the public. I love a man that I can fart in his presence and he will tell me ‘well done princess’. He can fart too, that’s okay. But too much of everything is bad though.
So, Is that man in your life right now?
Yes of course.
How do you relax?
My favourite food is beans and Afang soup. When I am home, I rarely go out. I don’t do cinemas. I prepare to be indoors with my man. I have a TV set in the house; all I need do is to buy popcorn and drinks then switch off the lights. No cinema can beat that.
What do you like most about your man?
He treats me like I am the only woman on earth and he loves God.
Hope he doesn’t feel jealous seeing you kiss and cuddle on the screen?
(Laughs). Well, he feels jealous sometimes; but he knows it is an act. And he trusts me.
Your unforgettable experience as an actress?
That will be when some guy tapped my buttocks. I can’t forget that day. I wanted to remove my heels and pursue him. But the actress in me held me bound. If not…
Are your buttocks your most cherished body part?
No. To me, I don’t think so. Every part of my body is important and my most cherished.
You are well endowed behind, would you insure it for a certain amount of money?
I am not into such things. I might though but I don’t know yet. But…
Majorly all your colleagues are into movie productions, are you planning that too?
For now, no.
How will you describe your sense of style?
I love dressing how I want to be addressed. I dress according to the occasion. Keep it simple but stand out always.
Can you say you are a fulfilled woman?
I don’t have everything I want right now but I am grateful and contented. I don’t have it all but I am well.
Lots of celebrity marriages are crashing, does that worry you and scare you from venturing into it?
It’s not only celebrity marriages that crash. It’s everywhere. And no, it doesn’t bother or worry me. In fact, it makes me stronger and remind me that when I finally marry, I must remain married because there are lots of wolves out there waiting to devour it.
Where do you see Anita Joseph’s brand in few years’ time?
That will definitely be when the brand is moving to its permanent site.
