Nollywood actress, Patience Ozokwo aka Mama G is celebrating the New Year with her kids.
Sharing the photo of herself and kids on Instagram, she captioned it, “2020 already looks good ❤”
Known to be very close to her kids, who are all grown, the Nollywood actress, who decided to drop wearing dreadlocks a few years ago, said she didn’t have friends but referred to her children as her best friends.
When rumours filtered into town that Mama G said God told her to drop her popular pseudonym, Mama G and also quit her lucrative caree:, there were concerns that the actress, who is a widow had problems with her kids.
“It is not true that I said I do not want to be referred to as Mama G. I did not say so. It is the people that want to sell their papers that told that lie. God did not say I should retire from my work; after all, we act dramas in church. He did not tell me to stop acting and he did not tell me to stop bearing Mama G. Mama G is not a bad name, there are people who have bad names and he said they should drop them. Mine is not bad. The meaning of Mama means mother and the G stands for General. I am everybody’s mother. Even the scripture says that I am a mother to everybody, even the motherless children. I am just lucky because everything is falling into place.”
On whether her kids are angry at he decision to stop wearing dreads, the comic actress said, “My children are Christians and my daughter got born again at the age of five. She is in London and she has nothing against my faith. It was when I had an encounter with God that people started calling her to inform her that I was running mad and they became worried. After I finished my 30 day encounter with God and came out of it, when she saw me, she knew I was fine. I have been like this since I was a member of the Scripture Union. I don’t have any problem with my children, we are all fine and they are proud of me. In fact, they are my best friends. I go to places where I can talk not only at churches or crusades, I talk about the word of God anywhere I can. I need to tell everyone the truth about the word of God. The Lord said that I should remove my dreads because even though my dread is from my natural hair, whenever I am preaching against weaves and telling ladies that it is demonic, people may think I am carrying one and they begin to ask why I have such on my head.”
