Feb 5, 2016 – Majid Michel Tells Reporter: I’m Not A Ghanaian Actor

Popular Ghanaian actor Majid Michel recently created a controversy during a press briefing in Accra Ghana.

The actor warned reporters during the launch of Kofas Media’s new movie project “Amakye & Dede” to stop addressing him as a Ghanaian actor.

During the question and answer session of the conference, Majid Michel was asked if there is a funny bone in him, and if there is, how he can make viewers of “Amakye & Dede” laugh when it’s finally out.

See his response:

 “Well, I am an actor and I believe acting is an act and art is universal… I am not a Ghanaian actor; I am an actor from Ghana. So I was there as an actor and this director said he wants me for a film and I said what is it about and he said this is it.”

Mr Michel was born to a Ghanaian mother and a Lebanese father on the 22nd of September 1980 in Accra Ghana.

    Since he was conceived and born in Ghana, he is Ghanaian. You are a citizen of your birth place. There are many people like that in Nigeria and Ghana. Those women rush to open their legs to those Lebanese working in Nigeria and Ghana and the product from such fling is people with false inflated ego. Lebanese are not even real white. In Nigeria we call them “Kora”.

    Not a Ghanaian actor? perhaps an American actor. what a silly perception.

    I saw this interview sometime ago, and I don’t go with him. A Ghanian actor, an actor from Ghana; he has not said a different thing. But if he feels inferior when addressed as a Ghanian actor, then do well to call him an “actor from Ghana”, if not for anything else, at least to boost his ego.

    He has fans all over the world… calling him a Ghanaian actor may ostracize his fan base from other parts of the world. This man is not denying his heritage as you all are making it seems.
