Richard Mofe-Damijo, Nigerian veteran actor better known as RMD, says body enhancements such as “boob lift and butt enlargement” sometimes signify a person’s insecurities and cannot make anyone happy.

In an Instagram post, the veteran actor stated that more people undergo plastic surgeries and show off wealth on social media in an attempt to seek validation from others.

“Having been there and done that, I can tell you for free that weight loss, weight gain, butt enlargement, boob lift, marriage, buying/building your own house, having kids, wearing expensive clothes and shoes CANNOT make you truly happy,” RMD said.

“Mostly, the things we do to show others we are beautiful, made, tough and/or connected are things that magnify our insecurities. A man who is secure in himself has no urge to flaunt wealth, I’m yet to see Alh. Dangote post a picture of his “machines” or of him “chilling in his private jet”.

A woman who is secure in her looks has no urge to go under the knife for enhancement, think Michelle Obama.”

True happiness comes from knowing who you are (self discovery) and loving yourself, “even though…” Anyone who can live without caring about the validation of others is the one who has found true happiness.✌🏽Outfit: @mudiafrica01 @mudiafrica #RMDSaysSo #SelfDiscovery #SelfValidation #SelfLove
