Nollywood veteran, Richard Mofe-Damijo, has spoken on why he can’t wait to be 60 years old and how he intends to be staying healthy even after his birthday coming up in a few months.
According to the actor popularly called RMD, his parents didn’t get the opportunity to get to that age so he sees it as a blessing and a privilege to celebrate his 60th birthday in style and to break the cycle of health complications that claimed their lives around that age.
Speaking in a chat #WithChude hosted by Red Media Africa, RMD noted that age 60 is a wake-up call for him to break the barrier of health issues which is the reason he invested his time in weight loss programs.
“Many people don’t know why I had to go on a weight loss. My parents were both 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 said.

It is a special as he turns 60 this year, and will be aired on the week of his birthday, in July.
