RMD, Ego Boyo reunite after 25 years
Nollywood TV stars, Richard Mofe Damijo, better known as RMD and Ego Boyo, are back together for a new project in the series The Mr X Family Show. This would be their first outing after co-starring in Violated 25 years ago.
The actor who hinted the comeback wrote on Instagram; “My journey with Ego Boyo started nearly 30 years ago. Our first encounter being on the production of Checkmate when my dear friend Amaka Igwe pulled me in as the villain Segun Kadiri on the highly coveted TV series. One of the most remarkable things about Ego is that despite the fact that she is born with a silver spoon into the family of the highly respected late Justice Nnamani she was super disciplined (she still is), very humble and extremely committed.
“Our status as Nigerian TV sweethearts rose with the movie Violated as ‘Tega’ and ‘Peggy’ became the toast of Violated fans. Since then Ego has gone ahead to becoming wife, mother, accomplished business woman and the president of International Women’s Society.
“Over 25 years later Tega and Peggy are back together again on my new TV “DramCom” The Mr X Family Show. I can only hope that getting back together again on TV will tickle fans of Ann Hathrope and Segun Kadiri and the fans of Tega and Peggy who have been craving to have them grace their TV screens again. Ego and I are pretty excited about this and hope the excitement catches on”.
He also teased his fans, asking them to guess the role they are both playing. The actor had earlier hinted about the new work stating, “New ventures are never easy. From conception to execution it’s fraught with all kinds of challenges and emotional roller coaster.”
