Legendary Juju Musician, Ebenezer Obey on Wednesday said that the late Reggae musical icon, Majekodunmi Fasheke popularly known as “Majek Fashek” was a humble and creative musician.
Obey told the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos that the reggae maestro’s death was a painful one, leaving behind a huge vacuum to be filled in the entertainment industry.
” I commiserate with the family of Majek Fashek, and pray that the Lord will take care of the family he left behind.
” Nigeria has lost a very talented musician; the reggae musical world has lost one of its greatest musicians.
” I know him to be a very creative and humble man who always genuflect to greet me whenever he sees me, he is always calling me ‘Baba’.
” There is nothing we can do because death is inevitable, I pray that the Lord will be with the family and console them: may his soul rest in peace,” he said.
He said the late reggae musician deserved to be honoured because he had contributed to the growth of the Nigerian entertainment industry.
He was also known as ‘The Rainmaker’ and worked with various notable artistes worldwide.
