Nigerian veteran actor, writer, producer, and lawyer, Richard Mofe Damijo, popularly known as RMD, took to his Instagram page to share his throwback photo and wondered why people referred to him as a fine man and good dresser many years ago.
How on earth was RMD considered a fine man and good dresser over 20 years ago?
Mofe Damijo was born in Aladja community of Udu Kingdom, near Warri, Delta State. He attended Midwest College, Warri, and Anglican Grammar School and was a member of the Drama Club. He enrolled at the University of Benin to continue his education and studied Theatre Arts. In 1997 Mofe-Damijo returned to the university to study law at the University of Lagos and graduated in 2004.
After graduating from the university, he took part in a television soap opera in the late ’80s called Ripples. Before then, he had a stint with Concord Newspapers and Metro Magazine as a reporter. Out of Bounds was the first film for which he received a writer/producer credit. In 2005 at the maiden edition of the African Movie Academy Awards Mofe-Damijo won the award for Best Actor in a Leading Role.
He was married to Nigerian journalist/publisher, May Ellen-Ezekiel (MEE). After her death in 1996, Richard Mofe-Damijo remarried TV personality, Jumobi Adegbesan, who later left TV for the corporate world.
