Majekodunmi Fasheke, Nigerian Reggae and Rock singer better known as Majek Fahsek, is “critically ill and needs financial supports to foot his medical bills”.
Uzoma Omenka, the veteran singer’s manager, took to his Instagram 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.”
