Veteran Nollywood actor and politician, Richard Mofe Damijo aka RMD, won millions of hearts playing Tega on
hit TV series CHECKMATE. His TV wife then, Ego Boyo was also a delight
among many as people loved their union o n TV.
The actor has taken to his Instagram page to gush about working with Ego Boyo again.
My journey with Ego Boyo @officialegoboyo started nearly 30 years ago,
our first encounter being on the production of CHECKMATE when my dear
friend Amaka Igwe pulled me in as the villain Segun Kadiri on the highly
coveted TV series. One of the most remarkable things about Ego is that
despite the fact that she is born with a silver spoon into the family of
the highly respected late Justice Nnamani she was super disciplined
(she still is), very humble and extremely committed. Our status as
Nigerian TV sweethearts rose with the movie VIOLATED as ‘Tega’ and
‘Peggy’ became the toast of Violated fans. Since then Ego has gone ahead
to becoming wife, mother, accomplished business woman and the president
of International Women’s Society.
Over 25 years later Tega and Peggy
are back together again on my new TV “DramCom” The Mr X Family Show. I
can only hope that getting back together again on TV will tickle fans of
Ann Hathrope and Segun Kadiri and the fans of Tega and Peggy who have
been craving to have them grace their TV screens again. Ego and I are
pretty excited about this and hope the excitement catches on. We are
curious to see how many people or if anyone can correctly guess what
we’re back together as… Mr and Mrs? Secret Lovers? Siblings?
Somebody?! Anybody?! Let the guessing game begin.
