Majek Fashek: Cause of Raggae star's death revealed

Legendary Fuji Musician, Adewale Ayuba, on Tuesday paid tribute to the late reggae musical icon, Majekodunmi Fasheke, popularly known as Majek Fashek who died June 1, aged 57years.

Ayuba described Fashek as an epitome of love during an interview in Lagos, while reacting to the Rainmaker’s death.

He said Fashek had left indelible memories in the mind of his fans as he took the reggae music to a higher level while alive.

“Majek Fashek’s death is a great loss to the nation and the world at large, he will be greatly missed.

“He was an epitome of love, considering my personal encounter with him and several projects we have handled together even beyond the shores of this country.

“He was such a kind and loving person who does not hold grudges, I have never sighted him fighting any artiste or being unhappy about any artiste’s success rather he showed love to everyone.

“Fashek should be called love because he is an epitome of love, he wished everyone well and never quarreled with anyone.

“We cannot talk about the growth of the entertainment industry without mentioning Majek Fashek, he is one of the musicians who has taken nation’s culture beyond the shores of the nation,” he said.

Ayuba urged Nigerian artists to emulate Fashek’s virtue of love while they show love to one another.

He said Fashek was a creative musician who never took after the Jamaican kind of reggae music as everyone understood whatever he says in his music.

He, however, called on the Federal Government to immortalise the reggae musical icon along with most of the late legendary musicians like Ayinde Barrister and Victor Olaiya.

Help! cry British musicians, warning of crisis in live music industry

Published

on

Paul McCartney, Ed Sheeran and The Rolling Stones were among some 1,500 musicians who called on Thursday for the British government to help the live music business survive the coronavirus outbreak.

“The future for concerts and festivals and the hundreds of thousands of people who work in them looks bleak,” the musicians wrote in an open letter to British Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden.

“Until these businesses can operate again, which is likely to be 2021 at the earliest, government support will be crucial to prevent mass insolvencies and the end of this world-leading industry.”

The letter called for a clear timeline on when music venues could reopen, as well as support for businesses and jobs.

Dowden responded to the musicians in a tweet bit.ly/3dQmayJ on Thursday saying he is “pushing hard for these dates & to give you a clear roadmap back”.

He said decisions on reopening of live music venues would be difficult as it relates to the future of social distancing.

The musicians in the letter said live music added 4.5 billion pounds ($5.6 billion) to the British economy and supported 210,000 jobs across the country in 2019.

The appeal was signed by musicians across genres and generations, including Rod Stewart, Eric Clapton, Bob Geldof, Coldplay, Sting and Dua Lipa, as well as producers and operators of concert halls and clubs.
