I’m not sick, I changed my lifestyle and lost weight - RMD

Concerns have been raised about the completely different look of Nollywood veteran actor Richard Mofe-Damijo, popularly known as RMD.

Questions have been asked about the health status of the actor who used to be well-built, but now in a completely new shape from what his fans around the world are used to seeing.

The questions intensified after the actor, who is one of the best to ever grace the Nollywood movie industry, appeared at the 2014 Africa Movie Academy Awards, looking very trimmed.

The Nollywood icon and Delta State Commissioner for Culture & Tourism, has however denied rumours, saying he is now in a better shape than he used to be.

"What else do you need? You saw me on stage, did I look sick? People are probably so disappointed to see me looking so much better they want the news to be true. Unfortunately for them, I am in the best shape of my life.

"Have you not taken photos of me. It amazes me how people cling to bad news. I am a public servant in Delta State, I go to work every day. I am not sick. I changed my lifestyle and lost weight and I am looking better than I have ever looked in my adult life."

RMD also categorically stated that he is not on social media, Facebook.

"For the records, I am not on Facebook and my colleagues that they used their names as those who posted the stories have all denied it.”RMD told Weekend Groove.
