Way back 90s veteran actors Richard Mofe Damijo (RMD) and Ego Boyo are the couple children wait to watch on Thursdays when TV series Checkmate was shown. They acted the role of Anne Hastorpe and Segun Kadiri.
Tuesday, September 6 was Boyo’s birthday and RMD took time out to give a super-cute birthday shout-out to his ‘original onscreen wifey’. In doing this, the actor cum lawyer brought back nostalgic feelings way back with this love note.
“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”
In the same tone, Ego Boyo commented on RMD’s love note birthday greetings to her when she wrote: “@mofedamijo awww hallo dear. Thank you screen hubby ???”
Meanwhile, RMD not only wished Boyo well on her birthday, he opened up nostalgic feelings in their fans as they went down memory lane and how they had wished RMD and Ego Boyo will end up as husband and wife. Some even want them to act as couple again.
