Actress Iretiola Doyle wife of Patrick Doyle have openly express her admiration for RMD. She spoke on how she felt when they had their first kiss on set and how the actor still left her jittery. Here is what she wrote:
Coming into this business a little over 2 decades ago…I had a short list of people I wanted and hoped I’d work with. It’s a no brainer that @mofedamijo was top on that list when it came to leading men😎. I remember that first opportunity …on the set of AMAKA IGWE’S “SOLITAIRE”…. it was difficult looking him in the face talk more of kissing him…I mean this was “RMD”!!! God bless JMD his wife who was pregnant and on set at the time; who with an amused look quipped..”what’s wrong with these 2 fairly used pple??? . I beg make una do so we can all go home…😂😂😂 That surely helped to break the ice for me… It’s been 20+ years now… this year alone I’ve been privileged to work opp this consummate professional on at least 3 projects. ..and at different times during the course of this period I’ve also been privileged to experience this rare individual on more personal levels as friend, big brother and husband… Is it man crush day today??? No matter! I celebrate this man today just because. This person who while fully aware of his (very real) larger than life persona still let’s “little lights” shine…a leading member of the brigade of people who truly make this industry look good and promising… Like fine wine may you continue to age with grace!!! #IBA!!🙌🙌🙌
Few minutes after she shared that on Instagram the actor replied by saying,“@iretidoyle wife dearest, why u gonna make me cry this morning. I love working opposite u my love. U make it so easy to come alive. You not only take you give more. Here is to you for always. Let’s see in Toronto so we can raise a toast to God’s Grace on our lives. Salute. I love u sweetcakes.”
And she replied
I think RMD’s reply was smooth.
