Monica Omorodion Swaida who was Majek Fashek's back up singer in the '90's has revealed that Majek Fashek's wife Rita, and his first son Randy are planning to return to Nigeria in a bid to help the iconic musician.

Last week, a story about Majek Fashek's current state of health posted by a local blogger went viral.

Swaida announced last week that she has started a fund raising initiative to help Majek Fashek who has been badly affected by drugs and alcohol.

"The goal is not to bring Majek to the US right now. The goal is to raise money to help him get to Rehab. No money will be given to him directly. I am working with his wife and son here right now. ‘We shall be returning to Nigeria to finish the task. We shall be looking at different facilities in Nigeria. We are also looking at some in South Africa. The wife is working with me and his oldest son, Randy. They have gone through so much trauma because of their father’s case. But they are hopeful. When we have raised the needed funds, the three of us will be returning together to help him. The other sons are great" she explained.

In an interview with THE NET, Swaida recalled how Fashek took her on his tour abroad when her group broke up.
