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 characterisation mirrors her real life persona.
According to our source, the multi-award winning movie star is now a born again Christian and now goes about, preaching in various churches and crusades. She reportedly rejuvenated her spirituality January this year after she was told by the Holy Spirit to fast for 21 days. 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 that she will be a voice for Him all over the world, people’s attention will be channelled from her image on Nollywood to the gospel. Ozokwor who got her major break in 1998 movie ijele, reportedly left all of these things go. In her interview, she reportedly said she could have died last December and eventually gone to hell if she changed her way of dressing.
She added that her moniker, Mama G, has been dropped, and that she has been preaching to her Nollywood colleagues as well. This however does not mean she will be abandoning Nollywood for good, as she reveals that she has taken a break from acting for now. With this development, Patience joins other Nollywood stars like Charles Okafor, Eucharia and Jayke Aernan who have chosen to focus more on their Christian faith.
On her movies which move her to tear, Mama G said, “you want to know the one that moved me to tears about my characters? There are characters I’d played in movies and after watching them back at home, I just thanked God it wasn’t me. It was a character. Nearly all the movies where I played wicked roles made me cry because i remember what that charcter had done to somebody. I do these jobs to the best of my knowledge because I want to sit down at home, watch and cry over what I’m doing to people.”
There was a movie I did many years ago, it was titled ‘Prophecy’ – what moved me to tears in that movie was that I was so wicked that I seized feeding bottle from the mouth of a new born baby who lost his mother and I was supposed to be taking care of the baby. The baby was crying. I seized his feeding bottle and threw it away. I wept profusely, the director stopped shooting until was able to control myself. Then I summoned courage to continue. If someone had done it in real life, I would have exposed the fellow to the world to see,” she said.
“There was another one where I went to take my sister’s daughter from the village, what I did to the girl, If any human being can do it to a fellow human being, I don’t know what God would do to that person in turn. I met her in the kitchen, beat her so much that she fell down the stairs, rolled down and died from broken head and pains all over. I’d been playing wicked roles but those two movies are exceptionally horrible.
I doubt that any human being would do that to anyone,” she said.
In January 2016, Patience Ozokwor gave her life to Christ and since thenthe actress has dumped her stage name and other unrighteous lifestyles.
Reno Omokri Writes Open Letter To BBNaija Enthusiasts
Reno Omokri has written an open letter to BBNaija enthusiasts.
In his letter, the former presidential aide asked ardent followers of the reality TV show to campaign for their businesses as much as they campaign for housemates who do not know them.
His letter reads
‘’Dear #BBNaija enthusiasts,
You see how you campaign for that housemate? Good. Campaign for your success like that. Instead of selling a housemate you don’t know and who does not know you, to me, use that time and energy to sell a product you can profit from to me. Do not be afraid of business or think that it is wrong to make a profit. It is not wickedness for lions to kill and eat antelopes. It is life’s natural order. Don’t be sentimental in business. Set your price competitively. Make your profit. Don’t exploit customers. But dont cheat yourself. A lion that does not kill will itself be killed!’’
A review Of Tiwa Savage’s Water & Garri EP
Nigerian multiple award-winning artist Tiwa Savage returns with a brand new extended play “Water & Garri. This comes less than a year after the release of her critically acclaimed third studio album “Celia”.
Water & Garri, a five-track body of work features Grammy Awards winner and veteran rapper, Nas, singer Brandy, the Nigerian underground artist Rich King and Alte singer and soul music stunner, Tay Iwar.
Since her return to Nigeria in 2012, Tiwa Savage has raised the bar for female artists. She embodied the almost frowned on sex symbol attribute in the music industry, her music is filled with flirting words and expressions. No wonder when she called herself African bad gyal, no one disputed the assertion.
Garri is a staple food among Nigerians, water is used to take or make Garri. The title as used in this context refers to her mashed style and global collaboration. She sticks to her heartfelt style in the course of making this album.
Tiwa Savage infused Rnb/Soul with Afro-fusion. The end product is a 19 minutes run of music with themes detailing heartbreak, love, hard work, perseverance, etc.
Nas and Rich King were on the opening track “Work Fada”, the pensive and reflective song preaches hard work and perseverance with Nas almost going preachy in his thought-provoking verse.
The six minutes long track is the perfect opener to the avarde garde album, who opens an EP with this type of lengthy play? Only Tiwa Savage could do such, the theme is distinct and it’s a well-calculated risk.
In 2016, Tiwa Savage’s marriage with talent manager Teebliz hit the rock. Five years later, she seems set to speak her truth. She reveals a little on the Interlude on her last album—Celia. On Water & Garri, Tiwa Savage dedicates two tracks to that ugly incident.
Ade Ori is a soft-light take on past relationships/marriage. She is now independent while she is hopeful about future handling. The lyrics drip with pain and regretful lines.
Tale by Moonlight was a popular weekly storied program on national television. Tiwa Savage details her fairy tale love expectations on this soulful 90s house music. Even though she flirts and gushing about the guy, she is cautious. Amaarae’s whispery vocals compliment Tiwa Savage’s flirt takes.
Seven years ago, American artist Brandy visited Nigeria. At a press conference before her performance at Classic FM Valentine show, she revealed she loved Tiwa Savage’s vocals, she liked it to a 14-year-old. Unknown to her, Tiwa Savage considered the Grammy Winner her role model and one of the reasons she is into music.
When they finally collaborate on “Somebody’s Son”, it is a perfect blend of two songstresses.
They complement one another, Brandy even sings in Yoruba. This track is one of the up-tempo songs on the EP. Its production is filled with Drums and mellow strings. Somebody’s son retains the themes of Ade Ori: it pleads for reciprocal love.
Tay Iwar and Tiwa Savage jointly closed the EP with a rollercoaster of deep expressive expressions. The horn-filled disco makes it sounds like a potential track for a Friday night out.
Veteran producer Pharell Williams called this project a classic but the fans failed to realize his caveat of it not becoming commercially viable. Tiwa Savage is unbothered if her recent promotional talks are anything to go by.
Water & Garri explores Tiwa Savage Rnb/Soul forte with an infusion of Afro-fusion, the EP is a dart between hope and despair. The production is pristine, however, the songwriting is underwhelming.
The featured artists almost overshadowed her. Although it’s obvious that this project is destined for the international market, the collaborations could have been lesser.
