"Checkmate" and "Violated" co-stars RMD and Ego Boyo together again on new show "Mr X Family Show" - BellaNaijaVeteran actor Richard Mofe-Damijo, popularly called RMD, has announced that he and actress Ego Boyo will again act alongside each other on his new show “Mr X Family Show.”

The actor made the announcement on his Instagram, where he showered praise on the actress.

The two were co-stars on the classic TV show “Checkmate,” and starred as a couple in the movie “Violated.

The actor shared a photo of the two of them with the caption:

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? Colleagues?…
Somebody?! Anybody?! Let the guessing game begin. [email protected]
