Veteran actor, Ricahard Mofe Damijo better known as RMD, keeps maintaining relevance in the movie industry and also his political ambition.
The actor has not had it all rosy for about five years of planning his own TV programme, precisely a series, but, he has finally been able to set the cameras rolling.
Those who were familiar with ‘CHECKMATE’, a popular TV series in the 80’s and 90’s will agree with me that Thursdays wasn’t complete without ‘CHECKMATE’ and so, RMD has decided to rekindle the fire that held many spell bound years back, by bringing on his production set, Ego Boyo, his set wife in CHECKMATE.
In his words, “My journey with Ego Boyo @officialegoboyo started nearly 30 years ago, our first encounter being on the production of CHECKMATE when my dear friend Amaka Igwe pulled me in as the villain Segun Kadiri on the highly coveted TV series.
One of the most remarkable things about Ego is that despite the fact that she is born with a silver spoon into the family of the highly respected late Justice Nnamani she was super disciplined (she still is), very humble and extremely committed.
“Our status as Nigerian TV sweethearts rose with the movie VIOLATED as ‘Tega’ and ‘Peggy’ became the toast of Violated fans. Since then Ego has gone ahead to becoming wife, mother, accomplished business woman and the president of International Women’s Society.
“Over 25 years later Tega and Peggy are back together again on my new TV “DramCom” The Mr X Family Show. I can only hope that getting back together again on TV will tickle fans of Ann Hathrope and Segun Kadiri and the fans of Tega and Peggy who have been craving to have them grace their TV screens again.
Ego and I are pretty excited about this and hope the excitement catches on. We are curious to see how many people or if anyone can correctly guess what we’re back together as… Mr and Mrs? Secret Lovers? Siblings? Colleagues? Somebody?! Anybody?! Let the guessing game begin.”
