MAJEK FASHEK TURNS BORN AGAIN -Gives Life To Christ At CMCM
Praise Jah! The Rainmaker, Majek Fashek, is
now a new creature.
The iconic musician
who has been battling alcohol and drug
addictions for sometime has finally given
his life to Christ.
The troubled entertainer from whose
fecund imagination emanated hit songs like
Send Down The Rain, Holy Spirit, I&I
Experience and so on publicly embraced
Christ on Sunday, June 23, 2013. This was
at the Christ Miracle Church Mission,
situated at Iyasuna Crescent, off Ishola Bello
Street, Ojodu, Lagos.
The church is being led by Prophet Peter
Abiola Adebisi, JP. The Edo born musician
had attended the churchâ€™s 7 Sundays of
Anointing for Breakthrough Service for the
first time, and got converted. Members of
the church were thrown into joy
afterwards. In fact, nearly all of them
rejoiced with him. Especially when Majek
was handed the microphone to do a song.
The song he chose to sing for the
congregation was one of his classics, Holy
Spirit. And as he did tears of joy streamed
down some of the membersâ€™ faces!
YES International! could however not
ascertain whether or not the Reggae music
king in Nigeria has been regular in church
since then. Or even whether some
ministers from CMCM have been following
up on him lest he backslides again. Majek
Fashek, obviously in his 50s, about two
decades ago, dominated the Nigerian
music scene. A total musician, he could
sing, play the guitar and also the keyboard.
Starting out as a member of the Jahstix
band, his debut album, Prisoner of
Conscience, catapulted his career and life to
the zenith. Then, he was still with the
defunct Tabansi Records and had Architect
Aig Igiehon as his manager. He crossed
over to Sony Music â€“ and while there
recorded albums like I & I Experience â€“
featuring popular numbers like Mama
Dede, Majek Fashek Inna New York and so
His wife, Rita and one of his sons, Randy
are believed to still reside in America from
where his addiction problem is believed to
have begun. Now living from hand to
mouth, Majek has been a shadow of his
old self since his return.
