Majek Fashek ‘critically sick, seeks financial support’

Nigerian Reggae and Rock singer, Majekodunmi Fasheke, better known as Majek Fashek, is “critically ill and needs financial supports to foot his medical bills”.

Fahsek's manager, Uzoma Omenka, took to his Instagram page on Monday to announce his condition while discrediting news reports claiming that the singer was dead.




He also disclosed Fashek’s ordeals, and solicit financial support to aid his treatment.

According to him, the 70-year-old artiste is currently hospitalized at Queen’s Hospital in London and needs funding for his upkeep.

“Yes, it is true that we’re here in Queen Elizabeth hospital in England. Majek is very sick but he’s not dead. The thing is that let’s not wish him dead, for people that speak fake news. Let’s pray for him to survive it,” he said.

“We only need financial support, as I said. I’ve run out of money. Since I came to England, I’ve been doing this alone for the past three years. Whatever news, whatever big man that says he supported, we’re not getting it. We really need support.

“It’s good the hospital bill is being taken care of but we still need money for his upkeep. To fans everywhere in the world. Thank you for your concern.”

In another clip making the rounds on social media, the veteran singer is captured visibly writhes in pains as medical personnel standing in front of his sickbed gives gory details of how Fashek was reacting while attempting to have him injected with painkilling medications.

In 2015, it was revealed that Majek was bankrupt and battling drug addiction. After admitting that he needed help at the time, he was admitted into a drug rehabilitation centre in Abuja.

As one of Nigeria’s surviving Reggae music legend, Majek attracted international attention in 1987, with his self-penned tune, ‘Send Down The Rain.’

The singer also played a supporting role in the 2000 Nollywood movie ‘Mark of the Beast’.

In 2017, the Reggae icon had denied using drugs or cocaine, saying that the secret elixir to his music was God.
