Majek Fashek ‘Is Critically Sick And Hospitalised In London’, Manager Confirms


Reggae legend, Majekodunmi Fasheke, popularly known by his stage name Majek Fashek has been hospitalised at Queen’s Hospital, London.

The singer’s manager, Uzoma Day Omenka has confirmed the report that the singer is gravely ill and receiving treatment at the hospital in London, England.

According to Omenka, Majek Fashek took ill last month and was rushed to London on August 24, 2019, after a brief admission at a Lagos hospital.

He further stated that a notable Nigerian known for his philanthropic gestures has promised to take care of his medical bill but does not wish to have his name revealed.

“Although, his medical bill for the surgery has been taken care by this notable Nigerian. I don’t want to mention his name, but we have serious issues with day to day upkeep. As I speak to you, Majek cannot eat and cannot talk, I have to do virtually everything for him. Right now, we are in dire need of finance to survive here in London.

We spend a lot of money every day to keep him alive. I have approached the Nigerian Embassy here but they abandoned us to our fate.

Majek has not eaten in days and the only food he can eat has to be specially prepared.

The truth is, we are stranded here. We are in great debt and we need help urgently if we don’t want this icon to die.

Recall sometime in 2015, it was gathered that Fashek was taken to rehab by his close friends and concerned individuals. His treatment was carried out at an Abuja based rehab, Synapse Services Centre For Psychological Medicine and sponsored by a prominent Nigerian individual.

However, the “Rain Maker” as he is fondly called debunked the news during an interview on Your View, a breakfast show on Television Continental (TVC), stating he only went for a “spiritual rebirth” not rehabilitation.
