22 years after their last movie together, veteran actors, Richard Mofe Damijo and Ego Boyo are reuniting again in a new TV series, ‘Mr X Family’ produced by RMD and which is set to premiere next week. The upcoming TV series which also marks RMD’s debut as a producer, kicked off filming on Monday, September 11, 2017. It will be a nostalgic time for fans who watched them both play lovers both in the movie, Violated and in the television soap, Checkmate, both produced and directed by the late Amaka Igwe in the early 90s
Writing about the relationship between them, RMD said; “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.
In the beginning; ‘Checkmate’ days
“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? Colleagues?…Somebody?! Anybody?! Let the guessing game begin.
