Ghanaian actor, Majid Michel has named US based singer, Rihanna as his female celebrity crush.
In an interview with Encomium magazine, Majid said he also admires working with Ghanaian actress Nadia Buari and Nigeria’s Genevieve Nnaji.
“I really love acting with Nadia Buhari. Nadia is one of my favourites because of her deep understanding of the act. She really understands all the tricks of what acting is all about. She understands her character very well, so, it makes something called the feedback loop, it’s an acting term; it makes it easier for you as an actor. In Nigeria, I like to work with Genevieve. For my female celebrity crush, she is not an actress but a music star. Her name is Rihanna. I know Rihanna is a bad girl but God brought me here to make her good,” he said.
The actor, married for ten years with two kids shared the secret of his successful marriage.
“You need information about marriage. You need to take a test on marriage. Marriage is the only institution you get your certificate before the test. You need information before you get into marriage. Love does not keep a marriage; divorced people will tell you that. What happens to; I love you, but we used to be in love. Love does not keep a marriage and sex is not a glue. Love and Sex never keep a marriage.
“It is knowledge and understanding. You need to know about marriage, you tell a girl or a guy I love you, but do you love marriage? They’re two different things. If a guy tells you I love you, and when you tell him let’s get married, he is running away, because love and marriage are different. Marriage is an institution, telling somebody a vow is not a marriage. It is a building that both of you are going to be in. The key element is knowledge, because knowledge is information and you need to have lots of information about marriage, then you understand these information, you comprehend them and you tell yourself; I am ready to do it. Not because I love her, but because I am ready to help her achieve her dreams.
“I’m ready to make our dreams come true with her. She is your help to accomplish your purpose. We stop making babies and grownups believe the first thing you need is a girlfriend or a boyfriend. That is not what you need; the first thing you need is the presence of God. Not a man or a woman, it is not about relationships, it is about God. The aim and the target has been lost, the reason and the purpose of our existence has been lost,” he said.
