I charge not less than $15k per movie – Majid
Ghanaian actor and evangelist, Majid Michel has disclosed he charges not less than $15,000 per movie.
Asked by Bola Ray on Starr Chat on Wednesday, October 4, if the movie industry is lucrative, Majid said you are never given what you deserve but rather what you negotiate.
Contrary to claims that he is paid Ghc20, 000 which has earned him the highest paid Ghanaian actor, Majid said it was a lie and that he charges more.
“You are never given what you deserve but rather what you negotiate and that is not only in the movie industry, it depends on how much value you place on yourself….. It’s a lie that I take Ghc20, 000, I take $15,000 per movie not cedis,” adding the biggest amount “I have received so far is $35,000.”
Nicknamed ‘Shaker’ – a name he derived from the TV series ‘Things We Do for Love’ in the 90s, the performer/ minister is an alumnus of the Mfantsipim School (Cape Coast), and has starred in about 50 movies in all. The 37- year old is a multiple-award winner and is married with three kids.
