Veteran actors, Richard Mofe Damijo (RMD) and Ego Boyo were featured in the TV series Checkmate of the 90s. They acted the role of Anne Hastorpe and Segun Kadiri.
On Tuesday, September 6 was Boyo’s birthday and RMD took time out to give a birthday shout-out to his ‘original onscreen wifey’. This birthday shout-out has however caused fans to react.
I remember walking into the room 20 something odd years ago and was introduced to a young lady who went to my school (Uniben), it was the start of Checkmate which marked our first work relationship. Then it was Violated and much later, Keeping Faith. Each time we were “lit” like the young folks would say -lol- Happy birthday my “original onscreen wifey” @officialegoboyo I pray God’s grace continues to shine forth in your life and I look forward to our next project together, just because we can. Have a very great year ahead. God bless and keep you my very own Anne Hartrope” he wrote with this photo of Ego
Ego Boyo also commented on RMD’s love note birthday greetings to her when she wrote, “@mofedamijo awww hallo dear. Thank you screen hubby”
