Actor RMD Celebrates 60th Birthday In Style Says "None Of My Prents Lived To Be 60, I've Broken That Yoke" (Photos)

Richard Mofe Damijo, a well-known Nollywood actor, is one of Nigeria's most brilliant actors. The ageless and charming Nollywood actor, who celebrates his 60th birthday today, is one of Nigeria's most talented actors. He is a Nollywood icon and an expert in the niche he has created for himself.

RMD (Richard Eyimofe Evans Mofe-Damijo) was born on July 6, 1961, in Lagos, Nigeria. He is a well-known actor, lawyer, writer, producer, and director in this field. Even at his age, Mofe Damijo is cast in romantic films and is adored by many Nigerians, particularly women.

The actor claimed in an exclusive interview with Nigerian journalist Chide Jideonwu that he has been free of the specter of death since he turned 59 years old.

He revealed that his parents, who were both diabetic and hypertensive, never lived to be 60 years old.

He said;

“None of my parents lived to be 60, so life for me is just about to get started.”

“There’s been a specter of death around my life, that’s what I’ve been dealing with last year till this year. When I turned 59, it was a big deal for me, a big deal for me! My mom died at 59, my father died at 57/58.”

“So, it was like, can I break it? When people see me and I go on a weight loss, people think that… you know, it’s health. Both my parents were diabetic and hypertensive, I don’t want to be that. I don’t want to be diabetic and hypertensive, I want to be healthier. At least give myself a fighting chance to change that whole cycle. Yes, I’m a Christian now, so I’ve broken that yoke but I have to also help myself.”

“Becoming 60 for me is even a bigger deal, so when July comes and I become 60. You know how the Bible says old things have passed away, I will truly become a new man because that is when I’ll make a bucket list. So all these things that you think I’ve achieved or done, for me it’s nothing, like zero.”

“So I’m going to now sit down when I’m 60 and do a bucket list … and then we’ll start.” This was such a heartfelt moment. Eish. It’s such an honor to do this show”
