Majid Michel Erawack “Shaker” (born September 22, 1980) is a Ghanaian actor. He found mainstream success following his performance in the movie Divine Love co-staring, Jackie Aygemang (nee Appiah) and Van Vicker. Majid is consistently cited as one of the best up and coming actors in Ghana today, but is also viewed as being overshadowed and overlooked by the media, in favor of Van Vicker.

Majid was born in Cantonments, Accra, Ghana, the son of Michel Erawack, a Lebanese business man, and a Ghanaian mother, Paulina Olympio who works for Ghana Review International. In a recent interview, Majid indicated that the name Erawack was a title won by his father while doing work in India. Majid chose to drop the name Erawack from his last name professionally.

Along with his other nine siblings, Majid grew up in Accra, Ghana. He attended St. Theresa’s Primary School, and later, the elite Mfantsipim Boys’ Secondary School, the alma mater of Van Vicker and also of Former United Nations Secretary-General, Kofi Annan. In secondary school, Majid was actively involved in theater and was a member of the school’s Drama Club. As a member of the drama club, Majid received a Best Actor Award in one of their performances on Emancipation Day in Cape Coast, Ghana.

Majid entered professional acting by chance. He was invited to join the modeling agency, Super Model Agency, on the behest of his next door neighbor. The director of the modeling agency, now turned producer, invited him to participate in a new TV series (GTV), dubbed Things We Do for Love. Majid acquired his nickname “Shaker” on the set. His role on Things We Do for Love, was to be played by a Lebanese boy, and Majid attributes his acquiring the role to his Lebanese heritage.Thing We Do for Love, became a success and propelled Majid into the mainstream.
On the strength of his performance in Things We Do for Love, Majid was cast in his first the movie Divine Love as the male lead, alongside Jackie Aygemang as the female lead and Van Vicker in a supporting role. All three used their roles in the movie to debut their movie careers.
Divine Love was a huge success turning Majid Michel, Jackie Aygemang, and Van Vicker into household names across Ghana and to a large extent Nigeria.

Majid is married and is currently expecting his first child.
