Ghanaian actor cum evangelist, Majid Michel, has revealed he experimented with drugs and engaged in street fights before he became born again.
Majid Michel, who made this disclosure in an interview on Joy FM while speaking about his life before he met Jesus, stated that he consumed narcotics until he became born-again.
According to him, although he knew God, there were times he did not understand the sermons and the teachings he heard from the pastors.
“I used to go out to drink, go and booze, we go and smoke, get into fights on the streets. So I did some drugs; we tried something to see how it goes. We get into fights at Members next to Glenz at Osu.” He said.
The actor also noted that despite being an evangelist he does not like going to church.
In his words,
“I’ve never enjoyed going to church. I don’t go to church because I despise getting out of bed in the morning. My siblings have teased me about it since I was a child. [While] in church, I said to my mother, ‘Mum, I want to eat bread and eggs.’ It’s too early for me, and I’ve never enjoyed church in my life, and I still don’t. My problem was that I never understood what they were teaching, and this was the source of my hunger as I grew older.”
Speaking further, Majid Michel urged youths to be careful of people they associate with as they could influence them negatively.
“Friends are critical. Be careful in choosing them because those you associate with play a role in how your life turns out. if you are listening to me out there and you are a young guy be careful who you associate with as it has a serious consequence on your future”. He added.
