Jumobi Mofe Damijo is the wife of everyone’s favorite ‘Sugar Daddy’ Richard Mofe Damijo.
Jumobi added a new year today and her husband Richard Mofe Damijo (who asides being a Daddy with a lot of Sugar is everyone’s hobby on Instagram these days and, let’s not forget, an amazing actor) took to Instagram to express his love for her in very beautiful words.
Love of my life. My Quarterback. My Rock. My wife. I am everything I am cos u love me. Warts'n All. Ur d one God gave me to love me as I am. 16 years later see where we are. See how I am. U make it all look beautiful. Mother of my children. My Adumaradan. I know u'll rather I don't bring u out here but I will love them to know the OTHER source of my strength and pride. Thank u baby for keeping my feet on d ground and making it real. Ur my HERO. I love u. Happy birthday my ABK.
What you may not know however, is those words almost did not come to be. Or at least, many people did not think that sixteen years later, those words would come to be.
You see, once upon a time, RMD was one of the most sought after Actors in Nollywood and nobody thought he’d settle down. That coupled with the fact that his ex, Mabel Ellen Ezekiel who he honestly truly loved had died about four years before.
With a man as fine and as successful as RMD was, a TV girl like Jumobi Mofe Damijo (then Adegbesan) really stood no chance.
But here, sixteen years later, Jumobi did not only win the race for RMD’s heart, successfully switch careers, she is his “other” source of strength.
And you know, when you’re the other source of RMD’s strength, you’ve most definitely got supernatural powers.
