Majid Michel, the renowned Ghanaian actor has mentioned why he quit acting in 2012.

The actor in a recent interview with Afro 614, shared by Hello Frank on YouTube, stated his excitement when he got the invitation and also disclosed that he stopped acting a month after he was announced publicly on the premiere stage as Africa’s Denzel Washington.
He said: “Do you know Kevin Hart? Do you know the movie ‘Think Like a Man’? I was invited to the premiere; I was there. I was going down with Meagan Good, Gabrielle Union, and Kevin Hart. Right after that, I was introduced to the entire cinema hall as the ‘Denzel of Africa’. It was that year and a month after that I stopped filming. I have no idea why I stopped filming”.
The popular Ghanaian actor explained to the host that he knew at the moment that he had attained his dream.

“That was my dream, that was where I wanted to be and the area of the people I wanted to be with. That was my dream, I wanted to go and do a film in Hollywood After I stopped filming, I started doing church, like learning and teaching ”, he said.
