Revered actor, Richard Mofe Damijo has averred that although he has acted alongside the talented Sola Sobowale for over three decades, he is yet to kiss the veteran actress in a movie.

Mofe Damijo said that it surprises him that despite all these years, they have never locked lips.

The role interpreter made this known while they both asked each other questions to promote the newly released series, The Return Of  The King.

Recounting the first time they met in 1984, RMD told Sobowale, “We met about 37 years ago, in 1984, Surulere, at Tade Ogidan’s place. We have played husband and wife several times and it hit me the other day that I have never kissed you in a movie. Hopefully, we will get to kiss as Reverend Ifeanyi and the king; I want to be able to kiss the king.”

Going down memory lane, Sola  Sobowale asked him why he decided to become an actor.

He said, “I think for me, it has been something I have always done from when I was a child. I played a lot when I was a child. In Warri, we called it ‘playing mama and papa’, which, in English, we call playing ‘house’.

“I went on to act a lot in my primary school. In secondary school, I was in the debate team and dramatic society. In my HSC, I was the president of the dramatic society. So, two things had happened to me all through my secondary school days — I was very athletic and I was a dramatic person. That is it.

“When it was time to fill my JAMB form, the theatre was the most natural thing for me to do. What I find amazing in the life of an actor is the fact that once you catch the bug, you do not want to go out of it.”

Still emphasizing on his desire to kiss Sobowale , RMD said: “In 10 years, I will be 70 and my prayers will be that we will still be doing this. There will still be some springs in our steps and I will finally get to kiss you,” RMD said.
