Nollywood legendary actress Patience Ozokwo, Mama G as she is fondly called, has kept to her promise and has penned a heartfelt speech to celebrate her Lifetime Achievement Award. Recall as we reported earlier that the veteran had received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the just concluded AMVCA.

Taking to her Instagram page to pen a lengthy post, Patience Ozokwo noted how there was no social media and present-day luxury when she began her acting career.

Appreciating all those who played a role in her acting carrer, she wrote; “LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD. When we started in the industry there was no social media and so many other luxuries we enjoy now. Progress was completely dependent on your talent, humility, word of mouth, and trust.”

“I appreciate my colleagues who work tirelessly and often times without recognition. I appreciate my family who have always surrounded me with love and acceptance. My children sacrificed a lot and stayed long periods without a mother. At one point, my daughter became my PA and is still my Associate Manager to date.”

All Marketers that believed in me from the very beginning. Too numerous to mention…. All my wonderful directors…. I did not want to mention names so as not to omit anyone, especially Producers, Executive Producers and Independent Producers far too numerous to count. I appreciate you all.”

“Thank you #MamaGLovers for your unwavering Love and support. I will never take you for granted. I will keep working hard so help me God. Thank you @charlesinojie for persisting to get me to #AMVCA9 you were truly relentless. Thank you for the recognition.”
