I had to do a post on RMD’s 60th birthday because if you know anything about the Nigerian movie industry, then you must know RMD. Richard Mofe-Damijo has been gracing the national screens since the 80s and even though I was a little girl in the times of Jagua Nana’s Daughters, I knew there was something about the uncle 😁. And then he appeared as Segun Kadiri in the evergreen Check-mate and ‘all hell broke loose’! Every aunty, in every house, gushed about him and so the legend began.
It was therefore no surprise to see an impressive representation of Nollywood, and indeed the Nigerian entertainment industry, stand up to honour a screen legend at 60. The pictures speak for themselves, RMD is very popular for his fashion, (you can never catch him looking out of place) it was no surprise that everyone came out looking all so glam.
Typical of a well organised Nigerian owanbe, there was good music, lots to eat and drink and great entertainment. RMD pulled an impressive crowd of not just entertainers but also politicians, technocrats and designers.
Please enjoy the fashion from the night:
The event was expertly hosted by his beautiful wife – Jumobi who herself was a favourite of most youths in the early days of AIT, ‘Lunch Break’ anybody? She left the spotlight in pursuit of other interests but it’s always lovely to see her.
Now the guests…
Always a stunner, you can never expect mediocre with Aunty Shaffy when it comes to role interpretation and also fashion.
Funke Akindele and Medlinboss are a fashion match made in heaven. Ever since Medlinboss started styling her, Funke has been finding herself on the best-dressed list. Love this look.
I love me some Eniola Badmus and I love this look! Definitely the best I’ve ever seen her.
I’m not too sure about Mercy’s look, the sheer and then the slit, it’s all too much for me. However, Mercy’s dressing is most times over the top anyway so I’ll let this slide.
Ufuoma understands her body and what suits it. With her, every appearance on the red carpet or at any event is always a delight.
It’s hard not to like Mercy, her playful nature is endearing. It also helps that she makes an effort when it’s time to step out. She looks nice, no too sure about the hairstyle though, not sure it’s right for a dress this busy, may having it swept back would have been better. But she looks good.
If you don’t know Aunty Sola then you don’t know Nollywood 😁. She’s a character and a half, little wonder she’s loved by all. I’ve been following her work long before her ‘Toyin Tomato’ days. One of my favourite Nigerian movies in the early days was “Diamond Ring”. She starred alongside RMD in that great movie. I love Aunty Sola too much to say anything negative about her look.
Another Nollywood royalty. Aunty Hilda can cry for Africa, once you see her in a movie, just get your tissue ready😂😂😂. I like her a lot, and she’s always looking so good, getting better with age – like fine wine.
One of my favourite faces from Nollywood (I mean Old Nollywood), I love me some Kate Henshaw. It helps that she always gets it right.
Ini is the queen of sultry, if it’s not sexy and sultry, she won’t touch it😁 .
Michelle dresses very well. I like this.
One of the few young faces from the entertainment industry at the party. Eku always looks nice and classy.
She styles the stars 😁. Mimi is the talent behind Medlinboss and the favourite stylist of a lot of young Nigerian socialites and celebrities. She looks good but you wouldn’t expect anything less right…
Oh, Aunty Mo always looks good. She always looks classy and nice. Love the look.
Nse is simply a classy lady, what else would you expect from an FGCI Alumni😛
It’s raining men
If you don’t know Emmy Collins then you know nothing about Nigerian fashion 😁. Once upon a few years ago, the fear of Emmy Collins’ fashion blog was the beginning of fashion wisdom for Nigerian socialites and celebrities. Gosh, I miss those days 😁😁😁…
Twice the fun…
They don’t come more royal than this! When you’re talking about the echelon of Nigerian entertainment, these two ladies are right at the top. They are both living legends.
I spotted a few more Old Nollywood greats in the crowd. It was great to see Segun Arinze. I also spotted Nobert Young and his wife who is also a favourite from Old Nollywood – Gloria Anozie-Young. I saw Segun Arinze and of course the charming Fred Amata. No, I didn’t attend 😂! I love my Old Nollywood so much that I watched a few short clips from the party
Happy birthday to the bros of bros, Zaddies of Zaddies, the charismatic Richard Mofe-Damijo.
