See what he wrote,
“Patoranking’s “Nobody wey nor fit to make am o” is the apt theme song for my life as I celebrate my 56th birthday today. From Welfare Road Warri, Delta State to the Silver Screen, it’s been an often times surreal experience that anyone who has made it from a similar place of obscurity can relate to. I believe my journey, like most journeys to greatness usually start from self-belief. It’s hard for me to believe I have done 34 years post-graduation. There’s been struggles, uncertainties, living abroad seeking greener pastures, returning home, businesses have risen, flourished and some fallen.
There’s been a marriage, a painful death, another blessed marriage, joyous births and more academic pursuits and degrees. There’s been my sojourn in government for 8 years, the birth of my precious grandchildren and the return that was first scary till I felt the overwhelming love and support of my ever growing fan base. What a journey. What a packed 56years. I am indeed grateful and thankful.
No, I didn’t wake up like this (as RMD), No, I didn’t always know that I would “make it”. It’s been Faith, Hard work, Self-development and more work. But above all I have been more graced than my efforts could ever have done which is why in this journey, God is my ride or die and today i return all the glory to him”
Richard Mofe-Damijo is happily married to TV personality, Jumobi Adegbesan who has left TV for the corporate world and they have 4 children together including one child from his former marriage with Late May Ellen-Ezekiel and grandchildren.
RMD boasts of an ever young look as he knows all there is in the fashion world,no doubt at his age still tickles the fantasy of his female fans.
Congrats to him…
