Ifeanyi Okowa, governor of Delta state, has celebrated Richard Mofe-Damijo, the veteran Nigerian actor better known as RMD, as he clocks 60.
In post via his Facebook page on Tuesday, the governor commended the heroics of the actor in the movie landscape.
Okowa also hailed RMD for his contribution to the development of the state during his stint as commissioner for culture and tourism.
“On behalf of the government and people of Delta State, I congratulate an illustrious son of the state, Mr. Richard Mofe Damijo, aka RMD, as he turns 60 years old today,” he wrote.
“We are proud of your many achievements in the movie and entertainment industry — and your service to our country, and our state as an erstwhile Commissioner for Culture and Tourism.
“As you turn 60, I pray that your family, associates, and admirers always have cause to be grateful to Almighty God for having granted you a life of wonderful accomplishments.”
RMD had earlier revealed being so apprehensive at 59 because his parents passed away before clocking 60.
“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,” he had said.
“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.”
