Majek Fashek: How Doctors gave him five years to live


Veteran journalist, Azuka Jebose, has revealed that doctors once gave reggae musician, Majek Fashek, five years to live because of damages caused by alcohol abuse.

“Majek has a bad liver from years of alcoholism. I do not know how he has survived to these times. About 10 years ago, doctors in Atlanta warned that he (Majek) had five years to live because alcohol had damaged his liver. He cursed them out and checked out of the hospital,” Jebose told

Jebose recalled how he and Charles Novia alerted the public to the singer’s schizophrenia but “his manager went to the media to deny and accused us of using Majek to make money.”

He has been in and out of rehabs, with flashes of recovery usually followed by a relapse.
