Patience Ozokwor (born March 25th, 1958) is a Nigerian actress who won the Best Supporting Actress award at the 10th Africa Movie Academy Awards.[1][2][3][4] Ozokwor was among 100 Nigerians honoured by the government to celebrate the amalgamation of the northern and southern protectorates in 1914.[5]

Early life[edit]

Ozokwor was born in the village of Amaobo, Ngwo, Enugu State, Nigeria, and attended Abimbola Gibson Memorial School in Lagos. She was married at age 19.[6]


When asked about her roles, Ozokwor said: "When I play the role of a bad woman, I see myself at that instance as a mirror through which I want society to see and appreciate the fact that it is not good to be bad. This is the reason I do it with so much passion that it becomes almost believable and by extension, I also see such roles as an opportunity to minister to lost and wicked souls that jealousy, hatred, envy and all the likes can only bring one to ruins." [7]
