Veteran Nollywood actor, Richard Mofe Damijo, could not escape being honored after his latest achievement in the form of the Lifetime Achievement Award he bagged last night at the African Movie Academy Awards (AMAA).
The veteran Nollywood actor was presented with the award by Pete Edochie which seems to be another kind of honour in itself.
RMD shared a photo of the award being presented to him by the Veteran actor via his Instagram page today, June 12, 2016, as he reflected on his years in the industry.
Commenting on the photo, RMD said:
“So in just 33 years as a “pro-actor” I get a life time achievement award. I am humbled, thrilled and super-grateful. I want to thank all my Directors. Producers. Teachers. Colleagues… I want to particularly acknowledge Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan. Dr Mike Adenuga. My fans who continue to authenticate me. My wife who is my solid rock and safe place. And everyone that has made it with me on this incredible journey.
“It was an amazing night and who better to be on hand to do it for me than Ebubedike himself. The lion… Pete Edochie. I was also blessed to be in the distinguished company of 2 of my favourite people who are not just actors to me Mr and Mrs olu Jacobs. Thanks #AMAA Dreams do come true if u hold on tight. This Warri boy has made good. It just tells me, everybody else can once they believe. God’s grace has indeed been more than sufficient for me. I am blessed beyond words. #RMDSaysSo#GodsSon#Blessed#AMAA2016#Actor#WorkingActor#Graced.”
Prior to the awards, RMD shared a dapper photo of his look to the awards as he anticipated the night to come.
“It’s about time. May dreams come true for all dreamers tonight. This is wishing all the nominees the very best, God’s grace and blessings be with us all as we celebrate one another. #RMDSaysSo #AMAA2016 #NigerianActors #WorkingActor #BlackActors#AwardNight.”
