She became famous in the entertainment industry as a result of how well she plays her roles especially as either a wicked mother-in-law or stepmother.
Following her new found faith, Patience Ozokwor has abandoned her old ways of dressing. No more make-up, trousers, dreadlocks and even her popular name Mama G. Against the backdrop of her renewed zeal for God, many of her fans are afraid that she may take a bow from the movie industry.
Starttells caught up with the actress at a crusade organised by St. Marks Anglican Church in Eziobodo Village of Imo State, where she shared her salvation experience. According to her, she normally organised a personal retreat for herself in the first few days of the new year.
When it was time to have her 2016 retreat, she heard the voice of the Holy Spirit telling her to fast for 21 days, she complained that she had so many projects to handle, endorsements and movies to shoot within that period, and the Lord extended it to a 30 days fast due to her complaints.
During this fasting period, The Lord 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. She said one of the things God warned her on was her dressing and appearance.
She said that putting on makeup, wearing jewelry and putting on trousers as a lady is wrong, and she also said that she has been preaching to colleagues in Nollywood, but God told her to put off her dreads, to stop wearing jewelries and trousers, that she could have gone to hell, if she died December 31, 2015 despite the preaching she’s been doing, just because of her appearance.
She asked the Holy Spirit to prove to her, give strong reasons why that was a sin, and Spirit of God replied that she should browse about it, that testimonies of personal revelations God gave to people are all over the internet, and all of them are saying virtually the same thing, that she should find those information to help her life.
When asked if she will quit Nollywood, Patience Ozokwor explained that the Holy Spirit has not specifically directed her to quit or to not quit. She said that she has not shot any movie since that encounter in January, that she used to get an average of N1.5 million weekly, but that God has miraculously been providing her daily bread.
She warned that it will be harder for her colleagues in the movie industry, with permanent tattoos and eyebrows when they eventually encounter Christ. She also said that she should stop being referred to as Mama G, as that name was for when she was in the world.
