Majid Michel has revealed a startling truth about his past.
The Ghanaian actor, who has been an evangelist for a number of years, has said that he used to live on the streets, smoking, using drugs, and fighting.
According to Majid, who spoke on Joy FM’s Gospel show, ‘The Reason is Jesus,’ he was addicted to opiates until he chose to turn a new leaf and become a devout Christian.
“I used to go out and drink, we used to go out and liquor, we used to go out and smoke, and we used to get into fights on the streets.” So I used some drugs; we tested something to see how it went,” he told Sunday program presenter Fiifi Forson.
He suggested that “friends are crucial” when speaking about how addiction to alcohol and drugs nearly destroyed his life. If you’re a young man, choose your buddies carefully because they’ll play an important role in your life.”
Majid Michel has been preaching the Gospel for the past few years, which has surprised most of his followers. He does say, though, that “I’ve always known God throughout my life.” There was no point of no return. I’ve known God since I first became aware of life.”
