Majek Fashek Is Not Dead

Umenka Uzoma, the manager of Nigerian reggae artist Majek Fashek, says the legendary singer is not dead. He made this known via the reggae music icon‘s Instagram page on Sunday, 15th September 2019.


According to him, the reports on social media about Majek Fashek’s death are mere rumours. He also said the singer is responding to treatment and would require more donations and prayers from well-meaning fans and individuals.

I just stepped out now because of this ongoing music that people are saying that he is dead. Let’s not wish him dead, let’s join hands and pray for him.”

“For those of you that are praying, prayers are working, every day there is a gradual improvement. We need funds, we need money for maintenance. The notable Nigerians that deposited for [Majek Fashek’s] medication…but we still need money for other things. We also heard that people are raising money which is without our consent…”


Umenka Uzoma’s statement comes after news of the reggae icon’s reported death started making headlines. It would be recalled that a few days ago, the manager announced that Majek Fashek was gravely ill and hospitalised.

Majek Fashek was one of the biggest music exports from this part of the world in the late 1980s and the early 1990s. However, things took a different turn as he went on a self-exile which, according to reports, were because of failing health and personal issues.
