Not many celebrities will choose to live in the so-called low rated areas, especially with all their fame. Most Nigerian celebrities stay in choice areas in Lagos like Lekki, Victoria Island, Ikeja GRA, and so on.
But in the case of top Nollywood actress, Patience Ozokwor, the reverse is the case. She recently revealed that she still lives in the village despite all she has achieved with acting.
She told The Sun that, “I still live in my village. It is nice to live in the countryside where everyone is everybody’s business. If you see the way people appreciate me in my village, whenever I go to the market to shop everyone will be calling me ‘Mama G’, ‘Gee’ for general, in fact, you will appreciate me more. But my office is located in Enugu town. So, I enjoy living in the village, my hometown. I still live my life of simplicity regardless of fame.God has always been on my side because without Him there is nothing we can do.
“Again, maybe if I were living in the city, things would be happening to me and nobody will know what I was passing through. And my people in the village know that I am always on location working either in the eastern part of the country or Lagos and Abuja. But when I am not working you will see me in the comfort of my home in the village. I appreciate my people for all their love and peaceful co-existence which I am enjoying.”
