The 2016 Africa Movie Academy Awards held on Saturday, June 11, 2016, at Dr. Obi Wali Event Centre, Port-Harcourt, Rivers State.

Just as we can't get over the embarrassing and disappointing 12th edition of the Africa Movie Academy Awards, we can't get enough of these moments between Pete Edochie and Richard Mofe Damijo.

RMD who was honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award, took to his Instagram page to share the above photo with the talented veteran, Edochie, who presented him with the plaque.

Receiving the award at the event, RMD dedicated the win to all the youths of Niger Delta, while Pete Edochie used the platform to urge the Federal Government through the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, to restore History in school curriculum.

RMD shared the photo with the caption;

"So in just 33 years as a "pro-actor" I get a life time achievement award. I am humbled, thrilled and super-grateful. I want to thank all my Directors. Producers. Teachers. Colleagues... I want to particularly acknowledge Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan. Dr Mike Adenuga. My fans who continue to authenticate me. My wife who is my solid rock and safe place. And everyone that has made it with me on this incredible journey.

It was an amazing night and who better to be on hand to do it for me than Ebubedike himself. The lion... Pete Edochie. I was also blessed to be in the distinguished company of 2 of my favourite people who are not just actors to me Mr and Mrs olu Jacobs. Thanks #AMAA

Dreams do come true if u hold on tight. This Warri boy has made good. It just tells me, everybody else can once they believe. God's grace has indeed been more than sufficient for me. I am blessed beyond words. #RMDSaysSo #GodsSon #Blessed#AMAA2016 #Actor #WorkingActor #Graced."
