Veteran Nollywood actress Patience Ozokwor, who was said to have issues with singer and actress Onyeka Onwenu, has finally come out to debunk the rumour.
In her words, spoken to Best of Nollywood, she said, “I really do not know why people write what they can’t investigate. Ms. Onyeka Onwenu and I do not have any issues. I have never been to her office before and she has never been to mine. We see at different functions and greet ourselves with respect accordingly.“
The actress who is popularly known as Mama G showed she has been pushed to the wall when in her statement she said, “The writer of that story should do a retraction or face the wrath of God. I’m still in great shock that a paper I respect so much could stoop so low to go to the Press without confirming their stories. Guess the company needs to re-train and re-brand their staff more. If you feel you want to dent the name ) to sell your papers. God will judge you.“
Ozokwor is one of the few Nollywood actors who rarely fall victim of scandals. She further expressed her disappointment saying, “Why should they write false stories about us just to sell their papers. Anyone who stains my name that I have struggled to build will have to answer to God in heaven. I am not a new act that will be looking for scandals on the internet.“
“If I have issues with anyone, I walk up to the person call him or her and trash it out and then move on. I was shocked when this this nasty story came up after after Ms. Onyeka and I attended then much awaited AfricaMagic Igbo Channel launch in Enugu with so much joy and laughter.“
