MAJID MICHEL

“Anytime I am given a platform like this to say something sensible, I never do. But today I’m going to try and say something worthwhile. Great thanks go to God, the crew of the movie, ‘Somewhere in Africa’, 4reez, Louis. I want to thank them for supporting me to bring that character out. I want to say big thanks to you AMAA awards” were the words of Ghanaian actor Majid Michel after he picked his first African Movie Academy Award in Lagos Nigeria on Sunday April 22 as Africa’s overall Best Actor 2012.

“This is my AMAA awards 2012. Today is a memorable day for me. I have been nominated for the past 4 years consecutively. I didn’t see it coming. I had a bet with my advisor- Mawuli. He told me I was going to win but I said no I don’t deserve it. So if I win I will give him the award, (he gave the statuette to Mawuli who was on stage with him and others), but I will take it later. I want to say big thanks to you my wife, my sister, my mum paid my film fees and to my father, who is late. To all single people here thank you so much for the support. I can see some faces; Nse, Rita, Kate … I don’t want to say much. I think the time is ticking. Thank you so much AMAA awards. Great job for me; next year I will be back,” he added after receiving his award from Lynn Whitefield on stage.

He outshined Hollywood superstars Hakeem Kae Kazim and Chet Anekwe, and other contenders such as Wale Ojo from Nigeria and top actors Karado Lance, Jafta Mamabolo and Menzi Ngubane- all from South Africa.
