Majek Fashek’s family seeks financial support to fly his body to Nigeria for burial
The immediate family of the late Nigerian born reggae music maestro, Majekodunmi Fasheke, popularly known as Majek Fashek, has called on the general public to aid them financially for them to bring the corpse of the deceased musician home for burial from the United States of America.
Making the plea on behalf of the family is a former House of Representatives member, Ehiozuwa Johnson Agbonayinma who represented Egor/Ikpoba Okha federal constituency. Agbonayinma who is a music enthusiast and owner of U&I Records made the call on Friday, June 5.
He described Majek as a legend and Africa’s pride and as such his remains should not be made to be buried like an ordinary being outside his fatherland, Nigeria.
He added: “With the support of the family, the children, we are looking at how we can bring him to Nigeria to be buried. This is going to cost quite a lot of money, especially with the challenge of COVID-19. So, we are trying to raise funds. The only account we have right now to be donated to, is the eldest son’s account, Randy Majek.
