RMD Narrates How He Brought Saint Obi Into The Movie Industry

Category: Entertainment News

News of the actor’s death filtered into town yesterday, leaving many people heartbroken, as the famous actor was known to have blessed tv screens in the 1990’s and early 2000’s.

Mourning the late actor on his Instagram page, RMD recalled how he met Saint Obi at an event in Abuja and how the actor reminded him that he gave him the BIG LINK TO NOLLYWOOD.

According to RMD, Obi came to meet him, but as at then, he had no movie at hand, so he asked him to go and meet famous movie producer, Zeb Ejiro, and that’s how his story changed.

Saint Obi died in the house of one of his siblings few days ago.

RMD wrote;

”Saint Obi

I recall being at an event in abuja some years ago and we were just catching up and he says to me “bros you nor remember say na you start me on this my journey?” And I was like ‘no way’ and he went on to narrate and he had come to me in the 90s for help and get into the movie industry and I had said I wasn’t doing any film then but I could send him to a friend and brother who did more productions than anyone else at the time and that brother and friend was Zeb EJIRO. I wrote behind my card and off he went and became a big star. The interesting thing then was that Zeb loved him so much he told me I had given him a natural replacement for me in the movies…

Then a few days ago Zik Zulu called and usually when he calls it’s something important. He gave the news of St Obi’s demise. We were both in denial and promised each other to find out more details. Then the news hit me again yesterday… even now it’s still difficult to believe.

Rest in power my brother. My prayers are with the family you’ve left behind. May God give them and us all the fortitude to bear your sudden departure.”
