I have $100,000 In America, Majek Fashek Addresses Begging Rumour

Several news platforms have been filled with reports of the awful state one of Nigeria’s biggest music exports, Majek Fashek is currently in. In a recent interview with popular lifestyle mag, Encomium Magazine, the ‘rainmaker’ as he is fondly called countered those reports claiming it is only a cheap blackmail from the media.

Read excerpts from the interview below.

On the speculations of him begging: The Nigerian press, the print in particular, not electronic, have been blackmailing me. They are trying  to ruin me writing all sorts of things against me. I did nothing. I was in America, I had to come back to prove them wrong. I’m a Rastafarian man, a prisoner of conscience. I’m the begotten of Jesus Christ. He’s my father. …..

On him roaming the streets: It’s not true. The thing is I’m a Rasta man and a prisoner of conscience. These are my two movements. And a prisoner of conscience and Rastaman does not avoid the poor. Poverty is a sin, I cannot discriminate against the streets, even though I’m a millionaire.

I have $100,000 in one of the biggest banks in America. I’m not a careless man. I’m a father with four boys. What happened was the hotel I was staying didn’t have light and they didn’t put on the generator. I was bored. So, I went into the streets to buy myself a drink. I like Guinness, sometimes Apeteshi or malt. I use the apeteshi to consult with the holy spirit. Why would I, as a prisoner of conscience, alienate myself from the poor man and woman? Then I am not a prisoner of conscience. How can I beg?…….

On who leaked the story: I didn’t even know that guy that wrote this thing came to investigate me. Is he CIA? I even bought bread for him that day.

On the true state of things: The true state of things is that they are all rumours, God still kept me. It’s all blackmail. It’s only God that has kept me alive that I must obey.

On having his own home: Yes, I have a house in Ogba, Lagos. It’s a bungalow. There are was a beef, which we have settled.
