Acclaimed actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo (RMD), today gave his fans a peek into his reality as he juggles many professional commitments with community engagements in recent times.
Speaking to his half a million followers on Instagram, the actor said: “Lately, it’s been a lot of drawing boards for me as my team and I have taken on new projects. Even the ones that seemed like a walk over at the development stage has (sic) turned out to be more intellectual, financial and human intensive.”
In a chat with Rhythm Africa via WhatsApp, RMD revealed that he is working on a TV series, Mr. X Show, and two films simultaneously.
Apart from these, through his production company, RMD Productions, he is giving back to society through his mentorship and internship programs. Speaking to Rhythm Africa on the expected outcomes of the programs for participants, he said: “[I am] just preparing them for greatness, and I will retain those I can.”
Hinting on the challenges that he faces with regard to the various projects, he told his fans that “I have secretly entertained the option of pushing “them” to the back burner, but I also look at the people who are counting on me to lead the way and the many more who have restlessly shown us love, support and solidarity.”
To Rhythm Africa, he said of his challenges: “I am having to self-finance to be able to attract the finance I need.”
Which of his projects is more challenging? The studio that he is building!
In spite of overwhelming nature of the projects, RMD remains inspirational in his post to his followers: “This is not just me sharing my fears but me encouraging you to take the step, no matter how daunting … our individual journey.”
