RMD, as he is fondly called won the diadem for his role in ‘Three Wise Men’, a faith-based film produced by Opa Williams.
This is the second laurel for the film, having won Tony Elumelu Award for Best Comedy Film Africa at the Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA) last July.

So I won the best actor for my role in 3 wise men at the just concluded Abuja international film festival. It couldn’t have come at a better time as we wrap the #glolafftafest2017 today. It’s been a long comic ride since April. Laughter is good for the soul, and even the bible acknowledges that a heart that is cheerful is as “medicine for the soul…” which is why I love to laugh and be merry. Like laughter, awards are good for the soul especially when they are not post mortem.
People ask me why I still get excited over awards in acting since I have won tons of them. Well, yes, I still get tickled by acting awards, It’s who I am, it’s what I do and I absolutely love it.
It is my art and in it’s own way defines me, so any recognition of excellence ìs a validation that on my lane, I do good work. I adore and totally respect those who do same in their respective fields because when it all comes down to it, really, it’s how we impact our little corners that count. I am blessed and thankful that after 33 years of doing this work, I still hunger to be better everyday. My name is Richard Mofe-Damijo I am an actor, grateful for the liberty to express myself through my craft. Who are you?
