Veteran reggae musician, 'The Rainmaker,' Majek Fashek will be celebrating 30 years on stage. The celebration will also feature the official release of his latest work entitled, ‘Weep Not Children.’

Uzo said: “It is a privilege to have Majek born in Africa. If America can celebrate him; why not his people? It is time to celebrate him. He is a living ancestor, a legend and a gift not only to Africa but the world at large. Majek is so big in America that he was the first African to appear on David Letterman’s show. Majek is so proud of this country that despite living in the U.S. for 25 years, he refused to apply for the American passport.

We can talk about his importance all day long but we just want to appeal to Nigerians to understand that it is not a one man show celebrating this great man.

I am using this medium to solicit for assistance from corporate bodies as well as good spirited Nigerians like Asiwaju Tinubu, Govenor Ambode even as Majek is resident in Lagos, Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State, Majek’s home state, former governor Oshiomhole, Aliko Dangote, Mike Adenuga, among others.

We also thank Captain Hosa Okunbor for his fatherly and loving assistance towards us. We pray God to continue to bless him in all his endeavours.

Please let us all come together and make the event grand.”

In his response the living legend had this to say: “I thank everyone for coming. Though I have been a victim of bad press but I still respect them and love my country. During my travails, if the media had capitalised on my success, it would have been easier for the younger ones to make it abroad. I really suffered on account of that. I want to reiterate that I don’t do drugs. I was just ill. I am grateful to Nigeria and I respect America but home is home.”

Veteran broadcaster, Mr. Soni irabor whose office was used for the parley added thus: “We are hoping he is back in full force. You cannot wipe away history. He is a man of legacy.”
