Renowned Nollywood actor, Richard Mofe Damijo (RMD) has taken out time to share some of his most difficult times as an actor, father, Nigerian and a husband as he turned a year older today.
The 56-year-old role interpreter said as a young Nigerian man struggling to find his way through life he never knew he was going to make it as an actor or as a business man.
“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.”
Taking to his Instagram page, RMD 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.
Well, happy birthday to him!
