Nollywood actor Richard Mofe Damijo, also known as RMD celebrated his 56th birthday, revealing his climb to stardom.
The handsome actor who holds a Theatre Arts degree from the University of Benin, recounted his sojourn from Warri, Delta state to the big screen.
One of the pride of Nollywood as he is undisputably referred, chose to inspire fans with his life’s journey.
He started from how he left Warri to pursue his dreams, becoming an actor, got married, lost his first wife, married another, became a grandfather and so on…
The ageless grandfather took to his Instagram page and 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.”
