In the early days of Nollywood, Richard Mofe-Damijo was the most sort after actor and every woman’s dream man.
At 55, he still has the charm, swag and sex appeal to sweep women off their feet.
The veteran actor shared his thoughts on social media this afternoon saying “at 55 rapidly going on 56, I am blessed to live my dreams in health and sound mind.”
In the post, Richard Mofe-Damijo talks about how he was scared, uncertain and worried about coming back to the movie industry.
However, he was able to continue living his dreams, irrespective of his age.
“Let’s take some time to revisit the “you’re too old to go for your dreams” myth,” he wrote. “Yea, it’s a myth and if anyone tries to convince you otherwise, tell them to take a good look at me.
“I left the scene (my dreams) for EIGHT YEARS…8 years in the entertainment industry is a life time, trust me, so I call it EIGHT LONG YEARS of being away from my dreams. Contrary to what a lot of you think and/or believe, when it was time for me to return to my dreams, I was scared, worried, uncertain, had doubts, questions and fears but hey, I went to the rock that is higher than I (God).
“I went to Him in humility and sincerity… The thing you call swag, sex appeal, charisma…you name it, is the GLORY OF GOD…It is by His special grace that at 55 rapidly going on 56, I am blessed to live my dreams in health and sound mind.
“Today, I encourage you to conquer your fears, worries, doubts, uncertainties and go with God. Go for your dreams… it’s never too late to start, never too late to try again… #RMDSaysSo #GODISNEVERLATE #JustDoIt #TrustGod #GoWithGod #StayPositive #Believe #WednesdayWisdom.”
In the previous government administration, Richard Mofe-Damijo left the screens to cater to some political affairs.
He is a former Commissioner for Culture and Tourism in Delta State. Back into the industry after the long break, Richard was never out of the minds of his fans.
His social media presence has been so up to date and seeing him grace the screens again is a delight.
