I QUIT ACTING AFTER I WAS DESCRIBED AS THE ‘DENZEL WASHINGTON OF AFRICA’ – Majid Michel

Well-known Ghanaian actor, Majid Michel has explained why he decided to stop acting in 2012.

In 2012, the popular American romantic television series, ‘Think Like a Man’, written by Keith Merryman and David A. Newman was premiered.

The movie featured famous American actors like Gabrielle Union, Kevin Hart, Regina Hall, and Meagan Good.

Fortunately, a few Ghanaian actors were invited to the Los Angeles, Hollywood, premiere. Majid Michel was one of the players who attended the premiere.

In a recent interview with Afro 614, which Hello Frank posted on YouTube, the actor discussed his pleasure at receiving the invitation and said that he stopped performing a month after he was formally introduced as Africa’s Denzel Washington

He said: “Do you know Kevin Hart? Do you know the movie ‘Think Like a Man’? I was invited to the premiere; I was there. I was going down with Meagan Good, Gabrielle Union, and Kevin Hart. Right after that, I was introduced to the entire cinema hall as the ‘Denzel of Africa’. It was that year and a month after that I stopped filming. I have no idea why I stopped filming”.

The renowned Ghanaian actor told the host that he realized right away that his wish had come true.

Majid went on to remark that when he first started acting, he had a desire of being recognized in Hollywood, and now that his dream had come true, he saw no reason to keep acting.

He also mentioned how the termination of his acting career gave him the opportunity to become a gospel preacher.

“That was my dream, that was where I wanted to be and the area of the people I wanted to be with. That was my dream, I wanted to go and do a film in Hollywood After I stopped filming, I started doing church, like learning and teaching ”, he said.
