Veteran Nollywood actress, Patience Ozokwor has dedicated her success to her children, saying her children made significant sacrifices for her career.

Ozokwor made this known in an appreciation note on Instagram after she had won the Industry Merit Award, at Saturday’s Africa Magic Viewers Choice Award.

According to Mama G, as she is popularly known, she relied on her talent, humility, word of mouth and trust because social media were absent when she began her acting career.

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 oftentimes 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.

She added that at some point, her daughter became her PA and Associate Manager.
