Veteran Nollywood actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo, popularly known as RMD, has said that cosmetic surgery and material wealth will not guarantee happiness.

In a recent post on his Instagram page, RMD stated that the guarantee of true happiness was not in the worldly things people achieved or acquired.

“Having been there and done that, I can tell you for free that weight loss, weight gain, butt enlargement, boob lift, marriage, buying/building your own house, having kids, wearing expensive clothes and shoes CANNOT make you truly happy,” RMD shared.

The 58-year-old veteran who was a former Commissioner for Culture and Tourism in Delta State, admonishes his fans at a time when the social media frenzy is at its peak, with some celebrities getting butt and boob enhancements and showing off the results on social media, thereby misdirecting the already misguided.

Having been there and done that, I can tell you for free that weight loss, weight gain, butt enlargement, boob lift, marriage, buying/building your own house, having kids, wearing expensive clothes and shoes CANNOT make you truly happy. Mostly, the things we do to show others we are beautiful, made, tough and/or connected are things that magnify our insecurities. A man who is secure in himself has no urge to flaunt wealth, I’m yet to see Alh. Dangote post a picture of his “machines” or of him “chilling in his private jet”. A woman who is secure in her looks has no urge to go under the knife for enhancement, think Michelle Obama. True happiness comes from knowing who you are (self discovery) and loving yourself, “even though…” Anyone who can live without caring about the validation of others is the one who has found true happiness.✌🏽Outfit: @mudiafrica01 @mudiafrica #RMDSaysSo #SelfDiscovery #SelfValidation #SelfLove
