Awesome and handsome Nigerian actor Richard Mofe-Damijo, RMD, is one of the longest Nollywood stars, whose movies usually create a lasting impression.
Having been in the movie industry for 33-years and counting, the veteran thespian talks about his career. He says he is blessed beyond words.
At the 2016 Africa Movie Academy Award (AMAA), which held in Port-Harcourt over the weekend, the Warri-born ace actor received a Lifetime Achievement Award. RMD dedicated the award to every child born in an unknown street in Warri, after paying homage to the late movie producer, Amaka Igwe.
He went ahead on Instagram to express his profound gratitude, reflecting on his 33-years experience as a professional actor. The 54-year old, who still looks dapper than ever, says he is humbled to be given a lifetime achievement award.
“So in just 33 years as a ‘pro-actor’ I get a life time achievement award. I am humbled, thrilled and super-grateful. I want to thank all my Directors, producers, teachers and colleagues.
“I want to particularly acknowledge Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan, Dr Mike Adenuga. My fans who continue to authenticate me. My wife who is my solid rock and safe place. And everyone that has made it with me on this incredible journey.
“It was an amazing night and who better to be on hand to do it for me than Ebubedike himself, the lion, Pete Edochie. I was also blessed to be in the distinguished company of two of my favourite people who are not just actors to me Mr and Mrs Olu Jacobs. Thanks #AMAA!
“Dreams do come true if you hold on tight. This Warri boy has made good. It just tells me, everybody else can once they believe. God’s grace has indeed been more than sufficient for me. I am blessed beyond words,” he said.
