The Ghanaian actor, 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.

Speaking about how addiction to alcohol and drugs nearly wrecked, he advised that "friends are critical. If you are a young guy, be careful in choosing them because your friends are very critical in your life.”

Majid Michel over the past few years has been preaching the Gospel which came as a surprise to most of his followers. However, he notes that “I’ve always known God all my life. There was no turning point. Since I remember being aware in life, I have known God".

The revelation, however, landed Majid in trouble with the Ghana Narcotics Control Board. During an interview in April on Okay FM, he said "I had an over 1-hour interview after said I had done drugs and that I didn’t see anything wrong it".

"I said I see nothing wrong with it because it is a plant and God created the plant. So, I didn’t see anything wrong with weed. Abeiku Santana guess what happened? That’s why I think we shouldn’t joke with the laws in Ghana. On Monday morning at 8 AM, they picked me up from house for that statement."
