As the old school acts continue to give way to the new generation superstars, veteran reggae musician, Majek Fashek seems to be impressed with a few of the younger generation of Nigerian artistes.
In a recent chat, Majek who continues with attempts to revive his career, expressed his approval for the kind of music played by pop icon 2face Idibia and pop sensation, Wizkid. ‘I like Wizkid and 2face, they play good music’, said the ‘rainmaker’.
But he knocked D’banj for his alleged ‘affiliation’ with the mystery cult, Illuminati. In the interview, due to be published later today, Majek said, ‘I don’t like that other boy called D’banj, those ones that went to join Illuminati. How can you go and sell your soul to the devil because you want to be famous. I don’t even like his music anyway’.
Majek Fashek whose real names are Majekodunmi Fasheke, was a reggae path-finder and international star; tipped by many to lead the genre from where Bob Marley stopped. But years of alleged substance abuse and failed projects have ruined that hope. Many are now concerned for his mental health, even as those close to him say he’s living in incredibly humiliating conditions.
