While we were growing up we did a lot of Nollywood movies, not really sure if it was called that then but I watched a lot of Nigerian movies and had this crazy crush for the man and the name. I am sure if you have been following me you will be like I have a lot of crushes, what can I say I have an eye for the good stuff.
Now going back to our MCM of the week, he is a well-spoken actor with a degree in theatre arts from the University Of Benin, and another in law from the University Of Lagos. Richard Mofe Damijo popularly known as RMD had a stint with Concord Newspapers and Metro Magazine as a reporter, after which he took part in a television soap opera in the late 80’s called Ripples. His acting career started in 1995 and has starred in over 70 movies since then.
In 2005 at the maiden edition of the African Movie Academy Awards Mofe-Damijo won the award for Best Actor in a Leading Role. In 2009 he became involved in politics and has been commissioner of culture and tourism in Delta state till date.
His résumé is a good one, we may not be able to do a lot of justice to his achievements with words but we are more than honored to crush on him.
