At the 2016 Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA) held in Port Harcourt, Rivers State on Saturday night, Richard Mofe Damijo was the recipient of the Life Time Achievement award. The award was presented to him by veteran actor, Pete Edochie.
“So in just 33 years as a “pro-actor” I get a life time achievement award. I am humbled, thrilled and super-grateful. I want to thank all my Directors. Producers. Teachers. Colleagues… I want to particularly acknowledge Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan. Dr Mike Adenuga. My fans who continue to authenticate me. My wife who is my solid rock and safe place. And everyone that has made it with me on this incredible journey. It was an amazing night and who better to be on hand to do it for me than Ebubedike himself. The lion… Pete Edochie. I was also blessed to be in the distinguished company of 2 of my favourite people who are not just actors to me Mr and Mrs olu Jacobs. Thanks #AMAA Dreams do come true if u hold on tight. This Warri boy has made good. It just tells me, everybody else can once they believe. God’s grace has indeed been more than sufficient for me. I am blessed beyond words. #RMDSaysSo#GodsSon#Blessed#AMAA2016#Actor#WorkingActor#Graced”
