Patience Ozokwo has penned a heartfelt tribute hours after winning the AMVCA Industry Merit Award.
Taking to Instagram, she revealed how her children sacrificed for her career. She also took the opportunity to thank all those who had an impact on her career since its inception.
She wrote: When we started in the industry there was no social media and so many other luxuries we enjoy now. Progress was completely dependent on your talent, humility, word of mouth, and trust.
I appreciate my colleagues who work tirelessly and oftentimes without recognition.
I appreciate my family who have always surrounded me with love and acceptance. My children sacrificed a lot and stayed long periods without a mother. At one point, my daughter became my PA and is still my Associate Manager to date.
All marketers believed in me from the very beginning. Too numerous to mention:
Upper Iweka Road Onitsha
Pound Street Aba
All my wonderful directors:
Ijele – @fredoamata
Ukwa – Valentine Nwabulu
Aguba – Ifeanyi Onyeabo (Blessed memory)
Mother-in-law – @kunleafo
Amayor Uzo Philips
Ndubuisi Okoh (Blessed memory)
Theodore Anyanji (Blessed memory)
I did not want to mention names so as not to omit anyone, especially Producers, Executive Producers, and Independent Producers far too numerous to count. I appreciate you all
