Legendary actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo (RMD), took to his IG page yesterday to write Timi Dakolo and Teju Babyface a heartfelt birthday note that has moved many of his fans deeply.
Dear Sons @timidakolo and @tejubabyfacetv I want to tell you how extremely proud I am of both of you and how grateful I am to know you. I am proud of you NOT because you are celebrities and successful in your own rights but because you are amazing fathers, loving husbands and brilliant men who love Christ and are neither ashamed nor afraid to show it.
Timi you already know that you’re by far one of my favourite singers in the world. I love old soul music and for me you pack the soulfulness of Otis Redding, Sam Cook, Al Green and far away Michael Bolton into one. My dream of you headlining your own sold out concert backed by a full orchestra will come to pass some day soon.
Teju, I am going to have to tell our own story in a book. If anybody keeps reminding me that there are younger ones in the business watching me it’s you and the way you push me to keep going gladdens my heart. I am proud of how you have rightly prioritised your choices by concentrating on ways to spread the word of God, ignoring money as motivation. You will break the ceiling soon and of that I am confident.
Timi and Teju, your display of godly diligence inspires me and I must say to both of you, Keep It Up Sons. I pray for you today that the spirit of God will continue to strengthen and energize you to be and to do better even as the grace of God continues to keep and cover you in all your endeavors.
God bless and keep you both today and always in Jesus name. Amen
We strive for accuracy and fairness.
