Who is Patience Ozokwor’s Husband, and What Happened to Him?

Around 1977 when Patience Ozokwo was 19, she became married to Mr. Ozokwor. The marriage was an arranged one, and although the actress had many suitors and a different man she wanted as a husband, her parents wanted Mr. Ozokwor.

According to her, it was one thing she regretted even though she had a good marriage with him and described him as a loving husband and father. Together they had three children. However, neither the marriage nor the birth of their children stopped the veteran 64-years-old actress from pursuing the acting career she had nurtured since childhood.

In 2000 while she was on set, her husband died after a long battle with a terminal ailment. She remains a widow for 34 years, raising her children alone. This does not mean she never nurtured the thoughts of getting married again until her children prevented her. The actress had been rumored to be dating Delta politician Michael Ejele. However, the actress denied the allegation.

Through Patience Ozokwor’s children and grandchildren, the actress has 14 grandchildren. Through her first son Uche, she is the grandmother of 3. Her only daughter also added to the number of the actress’ grandchildren as a mother of 3, and her last child, Nduka, is a father of 2.

As a result, she is the grandmother of her biological children’s eight children. On the other hand, her adopted children have her additional six grandchildren, which amounts to 14 grandchildren.

There Is A Conspiracy Theory that Patience Ozokwor is the Mother of Tonto Dikeh and the Aneke Twin Girls

Tonto Dikeh is believed to be one of the children of Mama G. This conclusion started in the early career of controversial actress Tonto when she featured in Patience’s music video, Iyo Ngwo Ngwo, in the early 2000s. However, the two women are not related. While Ozokwor hails from Enugu, Tonto hails from Rivers State and is the daughter of Veronica Dikeh, who died when the actress was three years old.

In the same light, Patience is rumored to be the mother of twin girls – the Aneke twins. The identical twins are Nollywood actresses Chidinma Aneke and Chidiebere Aneke. Patience is not their mother but shares a close relationship with the twin actresses. They also hail from the same State, Enugu State, in the Eastern part of Nigeria.
