R.I.P my big brother, Mr. Majekodunmi Fasheke (aka Majek Fashek), the ‘Rain Maker’ and extraordinarily gifted musician. They don’t make them like you anymore. Your remake of the song Hotel California remains one of my favorites and, of course, the ever green, Send Down the Rain!
RIP Majek Fashek 💔 Thank you for sending us Rain, hopefully it will take away the depression of the past few days.
You can imagine how saddened I am to hear that my childhood music hero has gone.
