Nigerian Reggae legend, Majek Fashek has come out opening to acknowledge that he has a drug problem, and is currently undergoing rehab in a facility in Abuja.
The star musician with the classic hit, Send Down The Rain, held a press conference yesterday, accompanied by his long time friend, Charly Boy. In the press conference he accepted that he had a drug problem, and went on to warn younger ones about the dangers of drug abuse.
People should stop the use of alcohol and drugs because being drunk will end up destroying your career and your plans for the future. Coming to the rehab is not a bad idea because I realised that I am addicted to alcohol and it was beginning to affect my output and what I enjoy doing and decided to seek for help. I am not the first singer or person that will go to the rehab; most renowned celebrities we know today go to rehabilitation centres to cool their memory.
I publicly admitted to addiction to alcohol because so many things are being said about me on the social media and nobody forced me to the rehab. Propaganda of scandal was being monotonous to my generation. I want to run from the stress of Babylon of Africa and I need to be credited for the works I have done.
He went to deny claims that he was ever deported from the US, and said he’s fighting to protect the legacy of his children.
We certainly wish him the best on his journey to recovery.
