It’s only taken some twenty six years but Richard Mofe Damijo and Ego Boyo are rekindling their on screen love.
The duo’s chemistry sizzled in the 90’s and after a last gig in 1991, both actors took a detour.
This year, this year they make a comeback on the small screen for a new series called ‘The Mr X Family Show.’
The series which will see RMD stepping into the shoes of a producer for the first time, is sure to be a fan favourite for all those who loved the dynamic duo in ‘Violated’ and ‘Checkmate’. Filming for the new show started on September 11 2017.
RMD, who is obviously very happy about the reunion, took to Instagram to announce the couples’ return to television.
‘My journey with Ego Boyo 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’.
