Tributes continue to pour in for the late music icon, Majek Fashek. In a message on social media, popular Nigerian film director, Charles Novia described Fashek as one of the best musicians and songwriters he ever knew.
I woke up a few minutes ago to see numerous missed calls and frantic messages from a few friends and persons.
Majek Fashek, whom they know I co-managed his career for a few years under my label November Records, died yesterday.
It was isn’t the kind of news one wakes up to, even if we had prayed and hoped against hope that he would be alright after his battle with ailments in the past year.
A deep legend of music has gone.
I was one of his biggest fans and he was one of the best musicians and songwriters I ever knew.
Quite a painful exit.
Rest on, Elewon! Rest on!
