Nollywood Community — When fans hear or think of Mama G, they immediately remember and relate to her wicked roles in Nigerian movies. Nollywood mother actress Patience Ozokwor have come out to disclose that fans love her wicked roles more than the righteous ones, and that is why movie producers only give her roles fans would love to watch. More on Mama G wicked movie roles below.
Patience Ozokwor is undoubtedly well-known for playing evil or wicked roles in Nigerian movies, especially as a “wicked mother-in-law”. The legendary actress recently told YES Magazine that ‘acting bad roles is just her trade mark’ as many other actors also act different kind of roles that they are known for.
In her own words, Mama G said:
“People should admit that I have something to play! People are known for stunts, romance, bad boys and girls, gigolo and so on, but I have that as my strong point. It was when I was coming up that I thought I might get hurt or being hated for playing those roles but I never knew it was going to even make me popular and loved.
“The roles I play most times are very vibrant and make people want to watch all my movies; even if I play the role of a good woman now, my fans will start complaining; you understand?” – Patience Ozokwor
Mama G further revealed that when she tries to act a good woman character, her fans complain and due to that, producers planning to use her in their movies, have to be strategic by giving a script that brings out the best in her.
“And if your fans start complaining that they don’t want you in a particular role, it makes the producers want to give me those bad woman roles the more,” she said.
Patience Ozokwor also noted that she does not make demands for the bad roles she acts but she works based on the scripts given to her.
“I don’t ask for it, they just give it to me and if the script I get has something new and my fans are anxious of what the role is going to be like, I can make it different from what I used to do.”
“It is not easy to play bad roles at all times. Ask any artiste around you and they will tell you it’s not easy to cry and shout on set at the same time when it isn’t your normal self.
“It is not an easy task at all,” she added.
