The family of the late reggae icon Majek Fashek have made a public plea for financial assistance to fly his corpse back to Nigeria for burial.
Majekodunmi Fasheke died on June 1, 2020, in New York, U.S. and the plea was made by former member of the House of Representatives, Mr. Agbonayinma on Friday, June 5, 2020.
Agbonayinma said Majek Fashek was a legend and Africa’s pride and thus cannot be allowed to be buried like an ordinary mortal.
Speaking further, he said:
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 senior son’s account, Randy.
Making this public is not my decision alone, some people came and said we should set this up. They said we should set up accounts in America and Nigeria. We want him to be buried here in Nigeria, his fatherland and not in some foreign land like a chicken. In Nigeria, we are still trying to decide which account to use but the American account of the first son is ready and people are already paying into it. I must commend the response has been encouraging but we need more funds.”
