RMD’s inspiring message to his ‘mentees’
By Benjamin Njoku
Veteran actor, Richard Mofe Damijo, popularly known as RMD has always been an admirable specie when it comes to the world of make-believe. In fact, since his dramatic return to his first love-acting after a long absence due to his romance with politics, RMD has been very busy, jumping from movie set to another and making his relevance felt in the industry again.
This thespian took time out of his busy schedule to counsel those he calls his “Interns and Mentees to be,”on his Instagram page. In a short but precise message, he posted on his Instagram page, RMD described himself as “a product of God’s mercy and an embodiment of imperfections.” He advised them to learn to keep their heads up, drawing instances from his story. “Dear Interns and Mentees to be. Thank you for your kind validations by constantly expressing your desire to have me as your mentor. Like I’ve said before, I am genuinely happy to mentor but I am extremely petrified at the great confidence and child like trust most of you have for me. I feel like a fraud when I see comments and get DMs telling me how perfect I am because I am far from even being good, I have taken too many wrong turns and from time to time still do. I am just a man forgiven by mercy, saved by grace and kept by love (God -1John 4: 8). I have made mistakes I should be ashamed but for the grace of God that covers it all,” he wrote.
Continuing, he said, “I do not see myself as the perfect role model and worry about how disappointed and betrayed you will feel if you eventually find out I am just another embodiment of imperfections. I come from a sincere place of no pretence or self righteousness but from a place of willingness to try and be the reason you hopefully turn out better than I did.
If you’re here and still willing to be my mentee, then wait for it. February is the month in which the wheels of our dreams will take their first turn. I look forward to what the month brings. Keep your heads up.”
