Mrs Patience Uzokwor aka Mama G is a popular nollywood actress. Uzokwor comes from a humble family here in Enugu Ngwo. She attended Abimbola Gibson Memorial School, Lagos and gained admission into Methodist Girls, Yaba. She also attended Teachers Training College in Afikpo from where she proceeded to IMT Enugu to study Fine and Applied Arts, specialising in Graphics.
It was Chika Okpala (Chief Zebrudaya of New Masquarades) that invited her to take part in a commercial in which she played the wife of Pete Eneh. The commercial was a mass orientation promo by the Anambra State Government to encourage her citizens to acquire education before venturing into trading. Her acting career took off after that.
A proud and caring mother of four, Uzokwor's first son is an engineer while the last is a footballer with Rangers International of Enugu.
