Congratulations, again, to Richard Mofe-Damijo.
In case you missed it, last night at the 2018 edition of the Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA) held in Kigali, Rwanda, RMD was announced the winner for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his exceptional performance in the movie, “Crossroads.”
Now, the legendary actor who is currently in Accra, Ghana, has taken to his Instagram to write a note in which he looked back at how far he has come, how much he loves his profession, and his gratefulness to all those who continue to support him.
“You see, none of my parents made it to be 60 years old. So to be 57 and healthy and winning awards in a profession I love so much just makes me super grateful today,” he said, adding, “This is me using this opportunity to say thank you to my fans and everybody else that has made my journey a beautiful one.”
And he said a lot more.
See his post below.

As a young actor starting out I always wanted to have a voice to do my craft to the best of my abilities. Get lost in it and be able to shine through no matter the pressures of the living conditions in Nigeria. Am so grateful I have managed to live some of my dreams. The awards have come in and to get them in my life time and not posthumously makes me even more grateful. You see, none of my parents made it to be 60 years old. So to be 57 and healthy and winning awards in a profession I love so much just makes me super grateful today. I was at the beautiful new airport in Accra, past 4am using their free WiFi when the news from AMAA AWARDS holding in Kigali came that I won best actor in a leading role in Africa for the movie Crossroads. I had won the same award at the very first AMAA AWARDS in Bayelsa. I was later honoured 2 years ago with a lifetime achievement award in acting. Now this. This is me using this opportunity to say thank you to my fans and everybody else that has made my journey a beautiful one. Keep striving and keep believing and God will make everything perfect in His own time. #keepwalkingnigeria #amaaawards2018 #rmdsaysso #rmdtheactor #nagracederushus #themrxfamilyshow @vomozmedia Tshirt by @wordforteclothing. #crossroadsthemovie
