Veteran Nollywood actress, Patience Ozokwo was caught off-guard with tears of joy as she received the merit award at the just concluded AMVCA.
Patience explained in her speech how Charles Inojie persuaded her to attend the event despite not knowing she had been nominated for an award that evening.
Patience promised to write an Instagram post in thanks to everyone, but for now, she has to recover from the surprise of the award.
“A few hours ago telling my daughter I might not make it to Lagos because my flight from Benin was cancelled and the last flight out of Asaba was delayed.
I had to attend a family wedding in the East Friday and barely made it back to Lagos.
Thanks @charlesinojie for encouraging me to come.
Let me rest for now. My speech will come later”.
