Ghanaian actor, Majid Michel who is also now an evangelist, engaged in the thievery because he was broke.
He disclosed this during Angel FM’s 30/30 segment show hosted by Okyeame Quophi.
Detailing the incident Majid Michel said “I used to take taxis, the trotro taxi type not the taxi that drops you. So when I sit in the taxi, I will take the money [from the gear area where drivers leave their coins] and then put it in my pocket”.
As for what happens after successfully stealing the money, he said “then when we reach the destination, I will pay him with his own money because I didn’t have money”.
This wouldn’t be the first time the actor has disclosed that at a point in life he was truant. Earlier this year, Majid revealed that he once engaged in drugs.
“I used to go out to drink, go and booze, we go and smoke, get into fights on the streets. So I did some drugs; we tried something to see how it goes,” he told Fiifi Forson, the host of the Sunday show.
