Veteran Nollywood star, Patience Ozokwor aka Mama G is one of the best actresses Africa has ever produced.
Known for her bad and wicked roles in most movies, Ozokwor revealed that she loves it and the main reason is,
“When I play the role of a bad woman, I see myself in that instance as a mirror through which I want society to see and appreciate the fact that it is not good to be bad. This is the reason I do it with so much passion that it becomes almost believable and by extension, I also see such roles as an opportunity to minister to lost and wicked souls that jealousy, hatred, envy and all the likes can only bring one to ruins.”
Mama G was forced into marriage at the age of 19 and she has failed to understand why until now.
“It was not my decision to get married at 19. And if it’s not my decision it means I was forced into it.
I was forced into it many years ago, and I did not see any reason my parents were forcing me as I was still young.
And even at that age, I had so many suitors. You know when you come from a polygamous family and your mother is struggling for her own daughters to get married and this other one is also struggling for her own daughters to get married and when this one [suitor] came around and my mother said go and I could not make a choice. I was not allowed to make a choice.
At the end, I had to obey my parents. I was not brought up to disobey them at all.”
