Charly Boy, a controversial Nigerian celebrity visited Majek Fashek recently in a rehabilitation centre in Abuja. Majek Fashek is a Nigerian veteran reggae singer and guitarist.
Majekodunmi Fasheke, popularly known as Majek Fashek was admitted into a Rehabilitation centre some months ago. It is alleged that he is mentally unstable.
Some months ago, he was found on the streets in tattered clothes begging for alms. Joseph Edgar, an investment banker and blogger ran into him one morning and came to his assistance.
Joseph Edgar said that Majek Fashek was begging for ogogoro because he did not have 100 Naira to pay for it. The blogger reportedly stopped, brought out the money, but suddenly got confused.
Should I give him this money and contribute to his death or should I refuse him and watch him throw a tantrum like a disposed toddler. He saved me the dilemma as he grabbed the money from me and rushed to the ugly, black dirty merchant of death, who gleefully poured him a glass full.
The blogger went on to comment that:
Majek in his destitution represents Nigeria. Blessed with more than enough resources, rich in human capacity, more fertile land than the whole of Asia and filled with gifted and talented people, but yet beggarly and poor. Daily our leaders go to ‘jibowu’ to beg poorer countries for aid, for debt forgiveness. The contradiction never leaves me. Japan with no known natural resources is so developed that we can only look in shame.
Majek with all the talents of a thousand people, begging the woman who can’t lift a finger beside him for N100, Majek being laughed at by miscreants and being mocked with so much joy by those who were not half as blessed by God.
Charly Boy, born Charles Chukwuemeka Oputa, went with some of his fans to visit the mentally challenged Majek Fashek.
Majek was delighted by the visit and thanked the visitors profusely.
I want to specially thank everyone who has been part of this. I have no regret, even though I am broke, I am still alive. I decided to take the advice of Charly Boy and others to come to this rehab.
Charly Boy commented that he was glad that Majek Fashek was improving and will soon be out of rehab.
