Patience Ozokwor Daughter Wedding Bella Naija0012The 26th and 27th of March 2010 were filled with joy and happiness as Chioma Nnenna Lameya Ozokwor, daughter of Nollywood star, Patience Ozokwor, married her heartthrob Chielozona Ugwu Ani in Enugu, Nigeria.
Patience who was widowed several years ago stood with pride as her only biological daughter (After her husband’s passing, kind-hearted Patience adopted 3 children) began her journey into matrimony.
The traditional wedding – Igba Nkwu (Ipa Mmanya) took place at Chalons Avenue Industrial Mission (Ozokwo’s nest) in Umu-ishi Ngwu, Enugu State. The bride was dressed in a beautiful blue traditional gown accessorized with coral beads. Later in the day, as she embarked to her husband’s family home in Amachalla, she changed outfits and matched her husband in a gold, black and orange traditional outfit.
The white wedding took place at the Dominion City Church in New Haven, Enugu. The bride – Chioma’s strapless white wedding dress was so gorgeous and her groom kept the elegant theme in his classic black suit. Nollywood was not left out of the mix as industry colleagues including Ini Edo-Ehiagwina along with her husband, Phillip, Mike Ezuruonye, Nkem Owoh and other nollywood stars graced the wedding. Acting and comedic veteren, Chief Chika Okpala popularly known as Zebrudaya of the New Masquerade was the Chief Master of Ceremonies at the wedding reception.
Chioma and Elozona love story started years ago as the groom is friend’s with Chioma’s older brother, Chuka. It was when they both moved to the UK that the love truly blossomed and now they have tied the knot.
Wishing them a blessed and happy marriage.

    Funmi ”the enemy of progress”, y wont the marriage last? that u dont have a serious r/ship or that u havent found any guy who sees u as a wife material doesnt mean others wont find. their marriage will last IJN. and its not compulsory u make unneccessary comments, silence is better most times, so pls shut that gutter of urs if u aint got nothing good to say.
    Am really happy for mother and child, wishing them all the blessings that come with marriage.xoxoxoxoxo

    bride looks really gentle and the dude, cool! and what?my hubby went for the wedding without me? Mike we’ll sort this out at home lol….Funmi na wa o! even if the marriage doesnt last, did u hire the hall for them? I mean which one is ur own??

  13. Iwalewa

    April 9, 2010 at 12:10 pm

    y did u have to point out that she is the only “biological daughter”? Patience herself probably does not make the distinction but u had to point out to the world. na wa for naija pple o

    Happy married life to the couple. The bride is gorgeous just like her mom

    I am happy for Patience Ozokwor. I wish the couple a happy married life.
    Madam Patience Ozokwor, you really did a great job. Very very happy for you. Congratulations. Nothing is as joyful as seeing one’s kids getting married while one is still breathing.

    why would the first ting on any ones mind be ” if it lasts” ? why will it not last again, ehn is there something you know that we dont or are you just a negative person against marriage sef. Hiss please abeg, dis is a wholesome couple ( and NO I dont know them) but they are young and not in the public eyes, so what negative impact is against dem, none, please let the poor girl enjoy her husband and marriage and may they have fruitful marriage with lots of their own children and adopted if they desire, the apple doenst fall far from the tree. I like her manner, (but one ting ehn, i commend her for her natural beauty, even with a mother in public eyes, she advised her well not to bleach em),.well done, she is pretty and he is a handsome husband and as you all can see how Patience is, dis one will be de same in 20 years, AMEN!!

    April 9, 2010 at 6:34 pm

    Funmi if youve had a bad experience don’t think every other women should.It would last in Jesus Name.I can see the love in their eyes and besides they continued their relationship in UK and it blossomed.Funmi if you marry a man bcos of money,sorry for you.This will last for them.Funmi better ask for forgiveness.
    Every comment here is all about wishing them all the best.God Bless them.


    April 9, 2010 at 7:25 pm

    people on BN love to vent out their anger and frustrations for no reason.
    all of you are overreacting!! so what if Funmi said “if it lasts”
    what is the big deal? see people here writing whole paragraphs because of it.
    all of you get off your high horses and enjoy the pictures.

  21. Okay!

    April 9, 2010 at 9:37 pm

    Wow.. Although I feel some may have overacted to Funmi’s comment; It’s good to see so many still have hope and respect as it relates to marriage. Most comments made on blogs these days about relationship, marriage etc. are negative. Patience Ozokwor is one of my favorite actresses. I appreciate being able to share in the celebration of this special event. Happy married life to the newly weds! Thank you Bella for posting the wonderful pictures.

    Mama Gee’s carbon copy…uncanny resemblance

  23. miss jones

    April 10, 2010 at 2:21 am

    think you guys are just overreacting to funmi’s comments, don’t think she meant any harm, and besides loads of marriages don’t last these days, as nigerians are becoming more westernised and are heading for divorce, please allow her to speak her mind!!

  24. Sugabelly

    April 10, 2010 at 3:27 am

    Hi, I have no opinion on whether or not Muma Gee’s daughter’s wedding lasts, but I just NEEDED to point out to you that that is an incorrect use of the word ‘mundane’.

    You CANNOT use ‘mundane’ that way in a sentence. It makes no sense. Seriously yo. Bad grammar in all languages is ruining this world.

    Kindly look up the meaning of ‘mundane’.


  25. Nneka

    April 10, 2010 at 6:05 am

    LOL LOL LOL Sugabelly u are super funny lol lol.can’t stop laughing.

  26. jasmine

    April 10, 2010 at 5:29 pm

    I love your comment… Mike has been looking fresh these days. Plus, I like that they look very down to earth rather than letting the wedding be the usual “show-off” as is popular today.

  27. Trendy

    April 10, 2010 at 7:58 pm

    just a careless statement, do not think funmi meant any harm

  28. Dith-H-P

    April 11, 2010 at 1:31 am

    aww she has her momsy’s smile!
    Happy married life! God bless ur union!!

  29. Funmi

    April 11, 2010 at 1:52 am

    DAMN!!! I talk say I want make dem divorce??? “I hope this one lasts” is the same thing as “Happy married life”, people! I did say I was happy for Mama G… Why would I say that if I wished them harm??? People suppose read comment well well before dem yarn o…


    April 11, 2010 at 2:52 pm

    thank you! i didn’t even get the “bad belle” vibe from your comment at all, people just wanna find anything to nag about on BN, that’s just how it is.
