The reggae artiste is a shadow of his former self as the once handsome looking, bubbly fellow is now in a pitiable condition .He is currently mentally unstable and sources say he is already in rehab, even if other gist leaked reports that he is not getting any better. He was spotted last Friday at Ogba, Ikeja Lagos clutching his guitar, staggering with a cigarrette in his mouth, murmuring incoherent words.
Majek resides in Egbeda, Sewage area of Gowon Estate, and according to a neighbour, she said;
“Fashek is gone, I’m not sure any kind of rehab will bring him back. He messes up in the estate; he drinks and staggers around with crowd gathering around him. He’s dried up.'
She further went on to say: 'He has body guards and a deep blue jeep, but most times, I think he sneaks out of the house and ends up misbehaving. The first time i saw him, I thought he was a mad man. He’s gone!'
The cause of Majek’s condition is none other than his addiction to marijuana, cocaine and alcohol. Sometime in 2012, he got a music deal worth N15 million naira and was scheduled to release an album…no one has seen any album or heard any single but from the look of things, all did not go well.
Majek Fashek, whose real names are Majekodunmi Fashekun, was one of Nigeria's brightest talents in the mid 80's and early 90's, with hit songs like 'Send down the rain' and 'Majek Fashek in new York'
