Why clocking 60 is a big deal for me – Nollywood actor, RMD

Veteran Nollywood actor, Richard Mofe Damijo- RMD, has revealed how it is a rare privilege turning 60 and how he plans to celebrate it in a big way.

According to the actor, his parents never had such opportunity before they passed away, adding that the feeling of joining the sexagenarian class was a big deal for him.

RMD disclosed this in an interview #WithChude.

The Nollywood icon who will be 60 in July admitted that it was a relief to have broken the yoke that proved unbreakable for his parents.

He recalled that his father died at 58 while his mum died at 59.

Speaking further, RMD said many people did not know why he had to slim down at a point, adding that he was always doubting if he could ever cross the milestone of 60.

“Many people don’t know why I had to go on a weight loss. My parents were both diabetic and hypertensive. I didn’t want to be hypertensive and diabetic. I want to be healthier and give myself a fighting chance to change the whole cycle.”
