Popularly known as RMD, an acronym of his name Richard Mofe Damijo is a toast of all, a role model to many and a beloved character in the Nigerian movie industry, Nollywood.
Thanks to his looks and styles, this grandfather would give lots of bachelors in the 20s and 30s a run for their monies, baba looks dope in every way a man should, little wonder he remains an all-time crush of many ladies.
The thespian recently celebrated his birthday and would not keep his joy at 56 to himself alone, hence he took to his intagram page to share a few words.
He wrote, “Patoranking’s ‘Nobody wey nor fit to make am o’ is the apt theme song for my life as I celebrate my 56th birthday today. From Welfare Road Warri, Delta State to the Silver Screen, it’s been an often times surreal experience that anyone who has made it from a similar place of obscurity can relate to. I believe my journey, like most journeys to greatness usually start from self belief. It’s hard for me to believe I have done 34 years post graduation. There’s been struggles, uncertainties, living abroad seeking greener pastures, returning home, businesses have risen, flourished and some fallen.
“There’s been a marriage, a painful death, another blessed marriage, joyous births and more academic pursuits and degrees. There’s been my sojourn in government for 8 years, the birth of my precious grandchildren and the return that was first scary till I felt the overwhelming love and support of my ever growing fan base. What a journey. What a packed 56years. I am indeed grateful and thankful. No, I didn’t wake up like this (as RMD), No, I didn’t always know that I would “make it”. It’s been Faith, Hard work, Self development and more work. But above all I have been more graced than my efforts could ever have done which is why in this journey, God is my ride or die and today I return all the glory to Him.”
