Peters revealed how veteran Nollywood actress, Patience Ozokwor, popularly called Mama G inspired her acting career in her interview she granted Punch.

She said, “I developed an interest in acting a few years ago, when I met Patience Ozokwor. I was a bit younger and she came to shoot a movie on the street where I lived. At that moment, I knew acting was something I wanted to do when I came of age and had enough courage to venture into it.”

Ogechi Peters also talked about her challenges in the Nigerian movie industry saying, “Adapting to life in Nollywood was not easy for me. I was shy and not accustomed to talking to a lot of people I didn’t know, or working with familiar and more popular faces in the industry. I felt like I was transferred to a new school.”
