Clocking 60 is a big deal for me, my father and mother didn’t ― RMD

Ahead of his 60 years birthday celebration, famous Nigerian actor and producer, Richard Mofe Damijo, popular as RMD, has described the feeling of becoming a sexagenarian as a big deal as he plans to celebrate it in a big way.

RMD, in an interview he had with Red Media Africa and shared on his personal Twitter account on Tuesday, said he was glad to have broken the yoke that was unbreakable for his parents as none of them reached 60 before they passed away.

RMD who will be 60 in July maintained that he had fears about clocking 60 as he was constantly being burdened emotionally about how his parents died without attaining 60 years of age.

According to the veteran actor who has featured in more than 100 home videos and blockbuster movies, his mum died at 59 while his father died at 58.

Speaking further, RMD said many people did not know why he had to slim down at a point, adding that he was always asking himself if he could ever cross the milestone of 60.

“Many people don’t know why I had to go on a weight loss. My both parents were diabetic and hypertensive. I didn’t want to be hypertensive and diabetic. I want to be healthier and give myself a fighting chance to change the whole cycle.”

He added that while he has broken the yoke being a Christian, clocking 60 to him is a bigger deal that he would remain grateful for.
