The Rain maker, Majekodunmi Fasheke, popularly known as Majek Fashek, is battling ill health and is currently on admission in a London hospital. Sources say Majek is being treated for a life-threatening illness which has symptoms of Cancer. Although The Podium Media could not independently confirm the real nature of the illness, Azuka Jebose, foremost entertainment journalist and one of Majek’s close friends, told YES International Magazine that “Nigeria’s eccentric reggae music superstar, Majek Fashek has cancer of the neck and throat”.
Jebose added that the cancer has spread to his throat and hovering around these parts of his body, flogging him with severe pains, movement restrictions and also slowly losing his voice.” Continuing, he added that the “cancer may also be furiously spreading to other organs of his body. The ears, nose and throat are the most common areas affected by head and neck cancers. Symptoms of this cancer may depend on where cancer develops and how it spreads. For example, tumors in the larynx or pharynx may be discovered as a lump in the throat. Cancer in the mouth may cause sores in the mouth or swelling of the jaw…”
Edo-born Majek, unarguably one of Nigeria’s greatest musicians, and with monster hits like Send Down The Rain, Mother, Little Patience, Majek Fashek Inna New York, Redemption Song (a remix) and so many others, had his beautiful career ruined by drugs and alcohol. His excessive consumption of those two deadly things left him a wreck, made him a laughing stock and now this.
