Big Brother Naija Pepper Dem runner up, Mike Edwards will be playing the role of RMD’s son in his debut Nollywood movie.
Richard-Mofe Damijo will be placing 29-year-old reality star, Mike, under his wings as his son in a new movie. The veteran actor revealed this via his Instagram post on Monday, November 25.
Mike and RMD were spotted together in Spain where the shoot is expected to take place.
In his recent Instagram post, RMD was excited to make the announcement. The Nollywood legend wrote,
“Meet my new son @aireyys mike of bbn2019.
I love my job. I get to not only meet people but be their friends or father or brother.
All through the big brother season, my 17-year-old daughter was one of those rooting for @aireyys and here I m about to play his dad and begin a new journey.
Reveal reveal later. See why I will always remain a cool dad? Imagine my daughter this Christmas back home telling all her friends that she can call @aireyys and speak to him anytime?. So the question… do we look like father and son?”
Mike left the shores of Nigeria on Sunday, November 24, 2019, for Spain, where his services have been engaged to feature in the upcoming movie.
Mike came as the first runner up at the 2019 BBNaija Pepper Dem, which had Mercy Eke winning the reality TV show. Indeed, he was one of the most popular housemates.
Past housemates of the BBNaija have featured on Jenifa’s Diary as well as other TV shows. Others like Ifu Ennada, Teddy A, Tobi Bakre and BamBam have gone on to appear in Nollywood films.
