Turning 60 is more than a big deal for he ageless, handsome and legendary Nollywood actor Richard Mofe-Damijo RMD and this sure rubbed off on every individual that attended the party held to celebrate the grand age.
The international fine wine had in a most recent interview opened up on how none of his parents had ever clocked 60 before passing on, sharing that he had gotten worried when he clocked 59 and worked so hard on himself not to end up having the same story.
“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. 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. So, it was like, can I break it? When people see me and I go on a weight loss, people think that… you know, it’s health. Both my parents were diabetic and hypertensive, I don’t want to be that.”
“I don’t want to be diabetic and hypertensive, I want to be healthier. Atleast give myself a fighting chance to change that whole cycle. Yes I’m a Christian now, so I’ve broken that yoke but I have to also help myself. Becoming 60 for me is even a bigger deal, so when July comes and I become 60. You know how the Bible says old things have passed away, I will truly truly become a new man because that is when I’ll make a bucket list”, he said.
