“Since I became born again, my friends have abandoned me” – Majid Michel
By Rita Chioma,
For Ghanaian actor, Majid Michel, being born again has cost him a lot of friends.
The once racy Ghanaian actor shocked fans last year when he disclosed that he has become a born again Christian and was ready to let go of any worldly things, including taking up romantic and raunchy movie roles.
But it seems the actor is not having the best of times with his close friends as he revealed that most of them have deserted him after he made the decision to become born again.
According to him, his vision determines his friends and so, to be at a better position in serving God effectively, he has to make room for those who will help him attain that goal.
Majid further said that he also had to let go of some friends who are detractors and cannot help him achieve the goals he’s set for himself as a Christian.
While attributing his success as a good Christian to his friends, he said in an interview with Abusa FM Ghana, “If you’ve a plan or goal it determines the kinds of books you read, the kind of friends you hold and the kind of people you hang around with. Pascal and Timothy became close to me because we’ve like minds of doing the work of God and they’ve become my friends.
‘Even if we go to a hotel and I’ve a lady friend, I’m monitored by Pascal and he asks who that person is. Sometimes I can have friends who can entertain lady friends and that makes it very important to know which friends you can really move with.’ boasted Majid.
