Veteran Reggae musician, Majek Fashek, is critically ill and currently receiving treatment at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in England.

The over 50-years-old singer was flown out of Nigeria on Wednesday, the 4th of September, after his condition became critical, this is according to his Manager, Uzoma Omenka who confirmed this on Monday.

According to him, “We currently require about 5000 pounds (about N2.2 million) to cater to the legendary musician’s feeding, transportation amongst expenses and I wish to also point out that “Majek is not dead; he is very sick and we are stranded and we need funds urgently”.

“We want his fans to pray for him; we have been to Nigerian High Commission in the UK and they said they have no funds and it is not their duty, you can’t imagine. We even got a letter from Queen Elizabeth hospital informing the high commission about Majek’s condition but it has amounted to nothing.”

Uzoma Omenka who refused to reveal the nature of his Majek’s ailment said since they arrived in London he has expended so much on the singer’s upkeep, daily feeding, and transportation.

He said, “Majek’s ailment is a culmination of so many things. Back in Nigeria, we went from hospital to hospital; St Nicholas even supported us at some point. I sold cars, properties to offset his hospital bills. The airline didn’t even want to fly him to the UK because of his condition; we spent over N10m in Nigeria.

“One of the issues are that Majek doesn’t have a house in Nigeria, so since January, I was paying N1.2 million monthly on accommodation. This was because we needed an apartment that has stable electricity. You know Majek was psychiatric and it meant he couldn’t stay in an apartment without a generator so we lived in Metro Apartment where I paid N40,000 daily because I couldn’t afford to pay monthly or yearly.”

Majek has just granted me permission to plead with his fans to assist him financially. Donations can be sent to Omenka Uzoma Day, GTB Bank and UK account, Omenka Uzoma Day Barclays Bank, Account No;30260762, Sort code: 202947.”
