April 8, 2017 – Anita Joseph: I Wish My Father Was Still Alive To Witness My Wedding
Nollywood actress Anita Joseph recently told the Entertainer how she felt about the death of her father.
On her way to bury her father, she spoke about some things she would miss about him
“I would really miss my father because I was a daddy’s girl. I would miss his jokes because my father was a very humorous man who always teased me and I would also miss the way he scolded me anytime I was out of line.
“Whenever he saw me in movies he would say, ‘that is my kpari’ which means that is my daughter. He was very proud and supportive of my career. I feel so emotional right now.
He always scolded me anytime I wore revealing clothes saying that I did not need to wear such. He always told me that he preferred me wearing long clothes that covered every part of my body.”
“The last time he came to visit me in Lagos, he asked me to take a family photo with him but because I believed I would see him, I did not listen to him. I said that I would always see him and he concluded that I could not tell. I wish I took him to a studio for a photoshoot.
I wish he was still alive to witness my marriage, I wish he would be there to have that father and daughter dance with me but he is gone”.
