Nigerian music legend Majek Fashek has died at the age of 71, multiple sources confirm.

Fashek’s manager, Omenka Uzoma, also took to his Instagram account to formally announced his death.

He wrote:

“Today been having pressure calls,well it is true that the African No 1 Legendary ICON has gone to be with the LORD his Maker,
Let celebrate him ,his achievements and his family,what ever decisions made by his immediate family will be notify.”

Majek Fashek is widely regarded as one of the greatest Nigerian musicians of all time. The man who is also known as The Rainmaker, is known for award-winning single ‘Send Down The Rain’.

His death, though sad, was not too surprising, as he has been battling with illness for the past few years. In November 2019, he was hospitalised at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, London.

May his soul rest in peace!
