Richard Mofe-Damijo, a veteran actor, says he was worried when he had to return to the movie industry after taking an eight-year hiatus.
The actor with over two decades of experience under his belt took a break from acting to go into public service in his home state, Delta.
RMD says he had “doubts, questions” about going back to the entertainment industry but God’s grace helped him conquer his fears.
“Let’s take some time to revisit the ‘you‘re too old to go for your dreams’ myth. Yea, it’s a myth and if anyone tries to convince you otherwise, tell them to take a good look at me”, RMD said in a post on his social media page.
“I left the scene (my dreams) for EIGHT YEARS…8 years in the entertainment industry is a lifetime, trust me, so I call it EIGHT LONG YEARS of being away from my dreams.”
“Contrary to what a lot of you think and/or believe, when it was time for me to return to my dreams, I was scared, worried, uncertain, had doubts, questions, and fears but hey, I went to the rock that is higher than I (God). I went to Him in humility and sincerity.
“The thing you call swag, sex appeal, charisma…you name it, is the GLORY OF GOD…It is by His special grace that at 55 rapidly going on 56, I am blessed to live my dreams in health and sound mind.
“Today, I encourage you to conquer your fears, worries, doubts, uncertainties and go with God. Go for your dreams… it’s never too late to start, never too late to try again.”
