” I commiserate with the family of Majek Fashek, and pray that the Lord will take care of the family he left behind.
” Nigeria has lost a very talented musician; the reggae musical world has lost one of its greatest musicians.
” I know him to be a very creative and humble man who always genuflect to greet me whenever he sees me, he is always calling me ‘Baba’.
