Movie actor, Majid Michel believes ex-Black Stars player, Christian Atsu died before his time.
According to the actor, the Hatayspor player wasn’t supposed to lose his life in the earthquake that occurred in Turkey on 6th February, 2023.
“I don’t believe in the phrase ‘you don’t know what will happen tomorrow. God gives and God takes,’ that is a lie,” he said on Hitz FM.
“It is false. God doesn’t give and God doesn’t take anything. ‘Oh God gave Atsu and God has taken Atsu,’ it’s a lie’, he added.
The actor however believes that Atsu could have evaded the earthquake that claimed the lives of 46,000 people in Turkey and Syria combined, if he had taken his spiritual life seriously.
Per the actor, people who take cognisance of their spiritual lives are often guided by the Holy Spirit to take the right decisions to avoid becoming victims of accidents and other forms of unforeseen disasters that may lead to death.
In Christian Atsu’s case, Majid Michel said it was reported that the Hatayspor winger was supposed to book a flight from Turkey to the UK to spend time with his family after scoring a winning goal against Kasimpasa on Sunday, February 5.
Christian Atsu allegedly cancelled his flight and stayed in Turkey to celebrate the victory with his teammates instead. Unfortunately for Atsu, he got trapped under the rubble following the earthquake that occurred on Monday, February 6.
Twelve days ago, the rescue team discovered Christian Atsu’s lifeless body at his residence, Rönezans Rezidans – a luxurious 12-storey tower that housed up to 1,000 people.
Christian Atsu was pronounced dead on Saturday, February 18.
Still Speaking on the matter, Majid Michel believes the footballer wouldn’t have been a disaster victim if he had taken the flight.
Furthermore, the ‘Kotoka’ actor condemned the popular saying “no one knows tomorrow.”
Majid also suggested the young talents that are coming up are supposed to be built spiritually.
“It is better to raise strong children than to repair broken men,” he remarked.
