Looking into her roles, I played the role of a bad woman, I see myself at that instance as a mirror through which I want the society to see and appreciate the fact that it is not good to be bad. This is the reason I do it with so much passion that it becomes almost believable and by extension, I also see such roles as an opportunity to minister to lost and wicked souls that jealousy, hatred, envy and all the likes can only bring one to ruins – said Mama-G.
She has featured in several movies among which is Omugwo.
Ozokwor won the Best Supporting Actress award at the 10th Africa Movie Academy Awards. she was among the 100 Nigerians honored by the government to celebrate the amalgamation of the northern and southern protectorates in 2014.
