Veteran actor, Richard Mofe Damijo better known as RMD has opened up on a time in his life when he had to deal with personal grief.
The revered entertainer going down memory lane noted that he was 35 when he lost his first wife to the cold hands of death.
Speaking in a recent instagram live chat with Bouqui, RMD said:” I have had personal losses that have wrecked me.I was 35 when I lost my first wife and my life stopped.It is easy to give in to depression.It is the easiest thing to do.You just lay down and just forget the world.You just want to be left alone.There was a time I was telling people ‘I really don’t mind if you don’t come’.I just want to be left alone,I just want to mourn”.
Recounting some of the challenges he had to overcome before stardom, RMD said:”I had to squat in a ‘BQ’ in lecturers’ quarters. I was a squatter to the third person. There were days when I would finish working during the weekend and I would drive with my friends to bar beach when we didn’t have any place to stay because sometimes because of the timing, we would finish around 3am or 4am, I couldn’t start driving back to Ojo or UNILAG at that time”.
Speaking further, RMD he said loves going through life’s process, adding that whenever he faces any difficulty he knows it’s just a process.
“I have worked for 36 years non-stop after graduation , I am going to be 60 next year, the thing is, I love the process. Every time I am faced with a difficult situation I know it is a process I have to go through to get to where I need to be”.
