Richard Mofe-Damijo (RMD), the ace Nollywood actor, has shared some beautiful photos on social media to mark his 61st birthday.
The veteran actor expressed gratitude to God for grace upon his life via his Instagram page on Wednesday.
He also appreciated his family, business partners, and to “the hands in the creative industry that have given me so much joy and opportunities to shoot my shot!”.
“This is 61 and counting! Super grateful and thankful for God’s grace upon my life. Birthdays are a chance to look back and forward and all I see is God’s grace upon the life of this shy Warri boy that said yes to life,” he wrote.
“Grateful for family, staff, friends, business partners and the hands of the creative industry that have given me so much joy and opportunities to shoot my shot!”
Entertainment Reporter recalls that, the actor had revealed how he was nervous when he was about to clock 60 because his parent never attained the age.
He also recounted how his parent died before clocking 60 because they were hypertensive and diabetic at the same time.
“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, big deal for me! My mom died at 59, my father died at 57/58,” he had said.
“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.”
