I did not get any preferential treatment in school — RMD




Nigerian actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo, better known as RMD, says he didn’t receive preferential treatment while in school despite being an actor.

RMD stated this in a chat with Punch while recounting some of his experiences back in school.

According to the Unilag law graduate, Lecturers deliberately picked on him to test his intellect.

He said “I made a lot of friends easily in class. When I got to the University Of Lagos, I was very focused on what I was doing and it was important to blend. I did not get any preferential treatment in school, instead, they wanted to know whether I could do anything outside of the movie industry.

“I also got the same treatment in Law school, lecturers will deliberately pick on me to test my intellect. What they did not realise is that these things made me more prepared. There was a time at UNILAG, when results were released they would circle my number and write my name so that people will know my results.

“They did this because the institution does not post names on the result. But this made me excel at every exam, I made sure of it. I like challenges, it is what gets me going. I like the fact that I had my law degree when I was grown and established.”

He added “I simply kept my head down and came out with good grades. I am old school and I do not think that one should rush through life. I love young energies, however, I like to still do things at my own pace. Having adult children also makes me grounded.  Now that I have the opportunity to act in a drama series set in a law firm, Castle and Castle; I am milking every moment of it.”
