RMD speaks on the fears of raising daughters as his little girl turns 15.


 Like any father with a growing daughter, Nollywood actor Richard Mofe Damijo has raised his concerns about watching your daughter grow. To celebrate her 15th birthday, the proud father shares a lengthy post. He wrote;
"Several months ago I made a decision to keep my family off my social media accounts but today as my little girl turns 15, I am compelled to say something. I'm not exactly certain why but perhaps it's because every father nurses some level of uncertainty about their little girl growing up. It doesn't matter where, Nigeria or the US, the fears are there. 
The fears are doubled today because of the exposure to the internet which is fraught with all kinds of dangerous notions, warped narratives and risky things, but you are my girl, who above all knows and fears God. My fears are calmed by the fact that you have been instilled with values that are not of the world but of the word (of God), which is why I know you will grow into a fine woman who will be a light and beacon to and for your generation. I believe God that you'll continue to grow in wisdom and in grace and that the light of God's word will always guide you to make the right choices.
Make yourself and everyone that loves you proud baby. Daddy is rooting for you, so go on my sweet cakes and enjoy your day and never forget that daddy loves you silly as always. Happy Birthday baby."
