Reggae legend, Majekodunmi Fasheke, popularly known as Majek Fashek, has been around for a very long time.

Majek, who is set to his celebrate 30 years on stage, said during an interview said Nigeria has some of the most talented human beings in the world.

He pointed out that the development of human capital in the country is being hindered by greedy politicians who are stifling the economy and misusing limited resources.

‘It is only in Nigeria that politicians bury money in coffins, Nigerian politicians are ass*****, God go punish all of them.’


Majek Fashek has been in an endless battle with drug and alcohol abuse and recently went to a rehabilitation center to get a fresh start.

In the early eighties, Fashek joined the group Jastix with McRoy Gregg and lead singer Black Rice.

They were best known as the in-house band on the show Music Panorama on NTA Benin, and toured with fellow reggae groups - The Mandators.

Jastix were also session musicians for upcoming reggae singer Edi Rasta, who would later be known as Evi-Edna Ogholi.

Majek Fashek moved on to become one of the biggest musicians in the 80's and 90's with hit songs 'Send Down The Rain' and 'So Long Too Long'.
