“The legend has gone to meet with the Lord”
Mr. Uzoma also stated in a video uploaded by HipTV, hinting that we should all celebrate him and his achievement. Mr. Uzoma did not immediately disclose the cause of his death, which could be deliberate considering his past refusal to disclose the nature of the artist’s illness.

It was followed by ‘So Long for Too Long’ in 1991, which incorporated haunting vocals with the artist’s captivating rhythm.
In the early 2000s, Majek Fashek, whose stage name was a condensed form of his full name Majekodunmi Fasheke, featured in some local film productions in Nigeria, including ‘Mark of the Beast’. The last few years of his life were repleted with multiple allegations of excessive drug use and illness, most of which the artist publicly declined during media interaction.
In 2019, there were rumors of his death, but he debunked them by confirming that he was receiving treatment at a rehabilitation centre on the outskirts of the Nigerian capital city of Abuja.
In September 2019, his publicist sought financial help from the public to help care for the Nigerian legend, a call that was headed by many, including businessman Femi Otedola. He was treated at a hospital in London, United Kingdom for several months before he moved to the United States of America in January 2020 to be with his family. He was survived by four children and his ex-wife, Rita. May his gentle soul rest in peace.
