MOZIAK MAGAZINE: WELCOME TO THE MOZIAK’S BLACK LOVE SERIES. TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR PARTNER.
Pamela Ifeneme-Nwosa: There’s always been a major event happening every year since we met. We met in 2016, got married in 2017, had our first baby in 2018, got pregnant again in 2019 and had our second baby in 2020. We’re very lucky to have met each other and want almost the same things from life. Our relationship so far has been both blessed and fulfilling.
MOZIAK MAGAZINE: HOW WELL DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT YOUR PARTNER DOES FOR A LIVING?
Pamela Ifeneme-Nwosa: Very well. He’s a management consultant and also working on a food delivery app, which will launch our venture into agri-tech and agri-processing.
MOZIAK MAGAZINE: WHAT DOES BLACK LOVE MEAN TO YOU?
Pamela Ifeneme-Nwosa: Black love means respect and appreciation, it’s more than just loving someone because of the colour of their skin. It’s an effortless appreciation of someone you desire and willing to invest in.
MOZIAK MAGAZINE: WHAT LESSONS ABOUT LOVE WOULD YOU HOPE TO TEACH THE BLACK COMMUNITY THROUGH YOUR OWN ACTIONS?
Pamela Ifeneme-Nwosa: Love is simple yet complicated. It can be easy to desire, respect, show appreciation and treat someone right, but it must first start with you. How do you treat yourself? How do you allow others to treat you? Do you think yourself worthy? Do you love and appreciate yourself? First understand and work on yourself.
MOZIAK MAGAZINE: DESCRIBE YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR PARTNER IN 5 WORDS.
Pamela Ifeneme-Nwosa: Our relationship is supportive, respectful, understanding, playful and a healthy dose of companionship.
MOZIAK MAGAZINE: WHAT DO YOU RECALL THE MOST VIVIDLY ABOUT YOUR FIRST DATE TOGETHER?

MOZIAK MAGAZINE: WHO IS THE MORE ROMANTIC PARTNER IN YOUR RELATIONSHIP?
Pamela Ifeneme-Nwosa: I am, lol.
MOZIAK MAGAZINE: IN WHICH PERSONAL AREAS HAS YOUR RELATIONSHIP HELPED YOU GROW?
Pamela Ifeneme-Nwosa: In my understanding of life, my relationship with people and optimising my resources.
MOZIAK MAGAZINE: HOW DO YOU HANDLE CONFLICT IN YOUR RELATIONSHIP?
Pamela Ifeneme-Nwosa: We usually express how we both feel, what we didn’t like, and then decide on a solution to apply should it occur again or a similar situation.
MOZIAK MAGAZINE: IF YOUR PARTNER WAS HELD HOSTAGE AND HAD TO RELEASE A CODED MESSAGE THAT ONLY YOU WOULD REALISE IS A LIE AND IS ACTUALLY A CALL FOR HELP… WHAT WOULD THAT CODED MESSAGE BE?
Pamela Ifeneme-Nwosa: I’m very horrible with codes, I’ll probably even forget that it was a code. Just a plain SOS message will work.
