I Have Given My Life To Christ - Patience Ozokwo


Nollywood actress, Patience Ozokwo popularly known has Mama G has confirmed that she has indeed given her life to Christ, and the roles she would play henceforth must portrait that. In a chat with Saturday Beats, the actress talks about how she manages her new Faith....

“I did not just give my life to Christ. I have been a Christian all my life. The problem was that there were some compromises God wanted me to remove from my life. He wants me to be the face of Christianity so that when anyone sees me, they will know that I am a child of God.

The world has mingled with the church a lot and there is no difference between the world and the church. The way the worldly people dress is the way Christians are dressing nowadays. God told me he does not want his people to dress in that manner anymore. The men would plait their hair and use earrings, all these things are making God angry and even the women should be modest according to the way it is written in the Bible.

People should be known to be Christians through the way they dress, talk and approach life situations. You cannot call yourself a Christian and you drink alcohol. God does not want all that. I did not just repent now, I have been a born again Christian all these years, it is just that everybody has gone astray and we are now like unbelievers. That is what God said.

“It is not true that I said I do not want to be referred to as Mama G. I did not say so. It is the people that want to sell their papers that told that lie. God did not say I should retire from my work; after all, we act dramas in church. He did not tell me to stop acting and he did not tell me to stop bearing Mama G. Mama G is not a bad name, there are people who have bad names and he said they should drop them. Mine is not bad. The meaning of Mama means mother and the G stands for General. I am everybody’s mother. Even the scripture says that I am a mother to everybody, even the motherless children. I am just lucky because everything is falling into place.

My name is not bad. The world should know that Mama G is still Mama G; I am still Mama General and in other parts of Africa, they call me Mama Africa. How can I deny my fans of that? God did not ask me to quit my job, neither did he say I should renounce the name Mama G because there is nothing wrong with the name. However, if he asks me to stop bearing the name, I will throw it away because it is all about what he wants and not what any man wants.”

Mama G added that her faith will not affect her movie roles. She seized the opportunity to clear the air that her children have no problem with her faith. She said that they are happy for her and she is best of friend with her children.

She said, “My faith would not affect my career or movie roles. The movie I am about to shoot is an action movie. I am using it to expose some ills in the society. There are some obscene scenes that I cannot take part in because I am a child of God. If you watch my films, you will know that I have never shot any movie that is obscene. I tell my stories but you will never see me naked. Even when I try to portray some nude scenes, I do it moderately.

Title-crazy civil servants to go

Title-crazy civil servants are scared of being sacked, The Nation learnt at the weekend. Officials, who violated the Public Service Rule banning titles until after retirement, may be retired in the coming civil service reforms.
Only those whose titles were traditionally inherited may be spared but their postings and conduct will be put under watch.
According to sources, the government is disturbed that most of the top civil servants with honorary awards actually bought them at high fees.
The affected civil servants violated the rules which grants them the right to such honors only after retirement.
Besides committing the resources of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAS) to such awards, most of the civil servants used the window to “grant favour to groups, persons, and communities in violation of their oath of office.”
