Patience Ozokwor is one of Nollywood’s most celebrated artistes. Popularly known as Mama G, she is without a doubt, one of the most sought after actresses in the industry.

She has perfected the art of playing the role of a villain, especially the wicked mother-in-law, so much so that many people (wrongly) assume that the characterization mirrors her real life persona.

According to Starttells, the multi-award winning movie star is now a born again christian and now goes about, preaching in various churches and crusades.

Patience Ozokwor who allegedly grumbled initially, was then told (by the Holy Spirit) to extend the fast to 30 days.

During this fasting period, The Lord reportedly revealed to her how she will be a voice for him all over the world, how people’s attention will be channeled from her image on Nollywood to the gospel.


Ozokwor who got her major break in 1998 movie Ijele, reportedly let all of these things go. In her interview, she reportedly said she could have died last December and eventually gone to hell if she change her way of dressing.

Adding that her moniker, Mama G, has been dropped, the actress added that she has been preaching to her Nollywood colleagues as well.

This however does not mean she will be abandoning Nollywood for good, as the interview from Starttells only reveals she has taken a break from acting for now.

With this development, Patience joins other Nollywood stars like Charles Okafor, Eucharia Anunobi and Jayke Aernan who have chosen to focus more on their Christian faith.
