Who's chasing Majid Michel out of Nigeria?

The website Nigeriafilms.com has published an article that suggests that ace Ghanaian actor, Majid Michel, may no longer feel free to go to Nigeria to act like his peers Van Vicker, John Dumelo, Jackie Appiah and Nadia Buari are doing. 

According to the website's story, it was when Majid "questioned the qualifications of Nollywood producers, that he had to run away from Nigeria for his dear life although NFC authoritatively denied the story. 

"The fair skinned star decided to give Nigeria a wide gap after he received death threats on phone from "actors" who felt he was taking the shine off them. Majid was gradually etching his name into the annals of Nollywood," the story said. 

"He was just like one of the boys. He easily blended in with actors and had a thriving relationship with the girls. Some even said he was having one or two things going with Nollywood star, Genevieve Nnaji. He was becoming the first choice ahead of our own stars he could act to save his life. 

"Majid stole lots of hearts with 
Guilty Pleasure and was becoming the number one face on our posters when trouble started for him. He started getting anonymous calls and death eats telling him his days were numbered. 

"Some of the SMS revealed directions from which they came. Some read "you think you can come here and take away our livelihood?, and "Watch your back, your days are numbered". He went home to consult his wife and she told him to stay put in Ghana because she needs him alive. 

"This has put paid to the talk that he quit acting in Nigeria because of the quality jobs he was getting which made others envious..." How has Van Vicker been surviving? It's because unlike Majid, he doesn't mix that much and he is more of a politician. He takes what is thrown at him, complains less and refuses to be entangled with the girls. But for Majid, he is loud and could outperform almost any Nollywood actor. 

"Other actors who starred in the same movies with him had to make a little extra effort because he could expose just how much they still needed to learn in terms of delivery", the story said. 

Yesterday when 
Showbiz called Majid who is currently in South Africa about the story, he expressed surprise. "I have no idea what you are talking about, I don't know anything at all about the story. People make up all sorts of mischievous stories and put them out there. 

"Why don't you contact any producer or director in Nigeria to confirm if I have stopped doing movies in Nigeria," were the words of the obviously upset Majid.
