You can’t give up on a passion just because we got married– Patience Ozokwor

Patience Ozokwor, often referred to as Mama G, has expressed her firm belief that a woman should not abandon her career, particularly if it’s her passion, just because her partner opposes it.

Providing personal insight, she shared an anecdote from her own marriage, recounting how her sister suggested she cease acting when her husband fell ill. However, she resisted this advice, emphasizing that acting was crucial for their livelihood.

Speaking exclusively to the Sunday Sun, the acclaimed actress highlighted that even her spouse did not pressure her to give up acting.

In her words she said;

“My dear, that is not done anywhere. You can’t tell me to give up on my passion just because we got married. For instance, if someone studied nursing for over five years, you then tell her not to venture into it because you are her husband, it is not done. And for this acting, you know it is one passion that can drive you crazy, that makes you so happy.

I remember then when I started acting my husband was very sick, my sister told me to stop acting and take care of my husband, but I told her no. I mean he is sick and he is not working and she wants me to give up my work too.

My husband even told me not to give up, he will always tell my kids to put my movies for him so he can watch them. I made sure I registered him at UNTH for the best treatments, and when he had a crisis, I ran back to him. So, you can’t give up a passion for marriage.”
