Nollywood actress Dakore Egbuson-Akande has penned down a special birthday message for her father as he celebrates his 74th birthday.

Taking to her Instagram page, Dakore Egbuson shared photos of her father alongside her and her children.

Dakore Egbuson said her father was the first man she loved and prayed that God would keep him in great health, wealth and strength.

She wrote; This is 74! Happy birthday to the man I first loved, my Dad May God continue to keep you in great health, wealth and strength.

Kemi Filani News recalls Gideon Okeke appreciated his mentors, Richard Mofe Damijo, Dakore Egbuson and a host of others, in a post stating he saw himself through them on his journey through acting.

The Tinsel star has made reference to his colleagues prior to his growth in his career, revealing that RMD has been his greatest influence as he delivered roles with a lot of confidence in style.

However, what attracted him to Dakore was the eloquence of spoken English diluted with so much fluidity and ease.
