Femi Otedola reportedly takes over Majek Fashek's hospital bills

Help has finally come for Majek Fashek as his hospital bills have been reportedly taken over by billionaire business mogul, Femi Otedola.

Respite has come for Majek Fashek as Femi Otedola reportedly takes over his medical bills.

According to blogger, Linda Ikeji, the benevolent businessman has decided to foot all the medical bills for the reggae music icon who has been admitted at a London based hospital. His manager, Uzoma Day confirmed this to Linda Ikeji during a chat.

"We really appreciate him for coming through and taking care of the hospital bills. Its a huge relief and we are grateful. We however still need more support from well-meaning Nigerians to take care of other expenses," he said.

This latest development is coming days after Majek's manager had debunked the claims he was dead.

According to him, he was still in the hospital and only required prayers and funds from well-meaning Nigerians.

He made this known via the reggae music icon' Instagram page on Sunday, September 15, 2019. According to him, the reports on social media about Majek Fashek's death are mere rumours. He also said the singer is responding to treatment and would require more donations and prayers from well-meaning fans and individuals.

"9:30 PM from London in Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Today is Sunday, this is to inform all the well-wishers, fans and lovers of Majek Fashek back in Nigeria that Majek is not dead, he is very fine. I just stepped out now because of this ongoing music that people are saying that he is dead. Let's not wish him dead, let's join hands and pray for him.

"For those of you that are praying, prayers are working, every day there is a gradual improvement. We need funds, we need money for maintenance. The notable Nigerians that deposited for his medication...but we still need money for other things. We also heard that people are raising money which is without our consent..." he said.

Umenka Uzoma's statement is coming after news of the reggae icon's reported death started making headlines. It would be recalled that a few days ago, the manager announced that Majek Fashek was gravely ill and hospitalised.
