COSON Chairman, Tony Okoroji, is so passionate about reggae legend, Majek Fashek; he is calling on corporate bodies to reach out and save the singer.
Okoroji took to facebook to announce his new passion when he posted this recently: “We cannot afford to allow the prodigious talent of Majek Fashek to be flushed down the drain. I am therefore compelled today to ask my many friends at Nigerian Breweries, Guinness, Coca- Cola, Pepsi, MTN, Glo, Airtel, Etisalat and the other organizations who deploy music as their major communication platform to give Nigerians a chance to once again enjoy the musical wizadry of the mystical and magical Majek Fashek. It is both a good business decision and a sound humanitarian decision. Please put Majek Fashek on your shows.”
Earlier he had posted: “Early in his career, I was involved in a tour that featured this guy. On a hot day, with the sun shining so bright at Crystal Park in Aba, Majek mounted the stage and once he started singing, ‘The sky is misty and cloudy’ the weather suddenly changed. It began to drizzle. As soon as he got to the chorus line, “Send down the rain’ the skies opened up and it began to rain like the stuff was getting out of fashion. This happened from city to city that it became difficult for me to insist that it was co-incidence. Majek became known as the Rainmaker. This born performer still holds his audience spellbound.”
Are you a fan of Majek’s? Are you touched? Do you want to reach out to the rain maker? A Majek Fashek Fund has been set up at Diamond Bank.
“This is an appeal to all lovers of good music and all fans of Majek Fashek to please contribute today to the Majek Fashek Fund,” Okoroji pleaded.
