Not only was Michael seen pounding, he also had the opportunity to turn the fufu in the mortar.
Talking about his experience, he said;

“This is a full workout session. Not everyday lobster, we eat fufu sometimes. I miss doing this,” as he vigorously pounded the cassava in the mortar.

While some social media users applauded him for still upholding his cultural heritage, others bemoaned the manner in which he pounded the fufu adding that he could have smashed the hands of the lady in the mortar.
