After years of battling an undisclosed terminal illness, Nigerian reggae music icon and guitarist, Majekodunmi Fasheki has given up the ghost. The news of his death was confirmed in the early hours of Tuesday by his longtime manager, Omenka Uzoma via the singer’s Instagram page.
Majek has been receiving treatment in an English hospital since September 2019 before he was moved to another hospital in New York where he died. Even though Majek had a successful run as one of the biggest stars out of Africa in the 80s, his success was mostly cut back by heavy drug abuse and bankruptcy.
Rest In Peace, Majek Fashek.
