The star added to the magazine that she plans to build a house in her father’s rural Ghanaian village, and joked that having a partner would come in useful for killing all the creepy crawlies.

It has been several years since Michaela last opened up about her relationship status. In 2018, she mentioned having a boyfriend during an interview with The Guardian. However, she then declined to elaborate further on their relationship for reasons of privacy.
Of her reasoning, the Emmy winner explained: “I used to be really loose with the amount of information I put out on social media because in the beginning I was not a known poet. I have to sell this place out, or I’m not gonna break even – so I soon discovered that my personality is a way to draw people in. As my career has stabilized, I feel like I need to retreat more.”
