Award winning Ghanaian actor Majid Michel has spoken out on what has kept his marriage intact.
The star actor, Majid Michel, who has no doubt carved a niche for himself in the entertainment industry, recently spoke to Encomium magazine on what has kept his marriage of 10 years together and why he owes all his success to his wife.
He said: “My wife is the only reason I am Majid Michel. My wife is responsible for me being Majid Michel.
She is the reason I’m Majid Michel. I mean, apart from God, second to God physically, if she never supported me or never understood my job, there’s no way I could have made it.”
The father of two, however, noted that in every relationship or marriage there are bound to be temptations but it is also a way of testing one’s loyalty.
He said: “Character over the years is temptations over the years. Temptation basically, means testing for weakness.
So, if over the years you’ve gone through a lot of temptations and you were able to withstand them, you’ve built your character which builds your value system, your morals, your ethics, which becomes you at the end of the day. So, we try not to run away from temptation but to overcome it day in day out and that is what builds our character as we grow up, and that is what defines us.”
Majid has acted in many Ghollywood and Nollywood productions including Omoni Oboli’s Being Mrs Elliot and lately, Genevieve Nnaji’s Road To Yesterday.
He was nominated for the Best Actor in a Leading Role at the Africa Movie Academy Awards in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014.
