Its barely 48 hours since the death of reggae music legend, Majekodunmi Fasheke – Majek Fashek and his family are already battling his manager of 7 years, Uzoma Omenka over allegation of embezzlement of funds.
Inside sources disclosed to e-NIGERIA! that prior to Majek’s death, his family members have been at loggerheads with Uzor over allegations of embezzlement and misappropriation of funds and donations made by individuals to foot the reggae legend’s medical bills while in England.
“There was no transparency on the part of Uzor who received donations on behalf of Majek; he has some clarifications to make. For instance, monies raised from all the donations by some Nigerians including Femi Otedola where not accounted for”.
“When we queried, he claimed Otedola made payments directly to the hospital’s account which we know is false. Again, we have it on good authority that Uzor is also in possession of monies realized from several other donations while Majek was unconscious in the hospital and till now he has refused to account for any of it”, the anonymous family source divulged.
Uzor in an interview with a Nigerian newspaper in 2019 admitted being under fire with Majek Fashek’s family who allegedly accused him of embezzlement. He said, “I have been solely responsible for Majek’s upkeep in the last five years, so where were these family members when he was facing tribulations? Immediately they read on Premium Times that Mr Otedola had promised to foot Majek’s bills, they rushed to the hospital accusing me of ‘eating’ the money. Unknown to them, Otedola paid directly into the hospital’s account and not to me.
“I sent him an invoice and the monies were sent to the hospital directly. They weren’t convinced.
“They embarrassed me at the hospital, called me names simply because I refused to give them Otedola’s phone number and address. They even wanted to pitch me against Majek’s son, thankfully he was wise enough to see through them,” he revealed.
www.e-nigeriang.com had earlier reported Majek Fashek’s death while still undergoing therapy in New York, but as at the time of filing this report, no burial details has been released by the family.
Meanwhile Uzor Omenka had earlier hinted that release of burial details for late Majek Fashek is subject to the family’s decision.
Majek Fashek is popular for his 1988 album entitled, “Prisoner of Conscience”, which included the multiple award-winning single “Send Down the Rain” and coincidentally it rained all night when the news of his death broke online.
