Nigerian music icon Majek Fasek has stated that he did not go to rehab last year.

The ‘Rain Maker’ as he is fondly called said he had a spiritual rebirth. He said this during an interview on ‘Your View’, a breakfast show on TVC.

“It was wrong to say I was taken to a rehab. I only went into seclusion for spiritual rebirth” he told the presenters of the show.

Last August Majek Fashek was taken to rehab by his close friends and concerned individuals.

His treatment at the Abuja based rehab Synapse Services- Centre For Psychological Medicine was sponsored by oil baron Ayiri Emami.

At a press conference in Abuja, Majek Fashek advised youths to stay away from drugs.

In the press conference Majek Fashek was with his treatment specialists and Charly Boy. Speaking to the press men, Majek Fashek confirmed that he was in rehab for treatment for drug and alcohol addiction. Monica Omorodion Swaida, his former backup singer who was raising funds for rehab was at the press conference also.

"People should stop the use of alcohol and drugs because being drunk will end up destroying your career and your plans for the future. Coming to the rehab is not a bad idea because I realised that I am addicted to alcohol and it was beginning to affect my output and what I enjoy doing and decided to seek for help. I am not the first singer or person that will go to the rehab; most renowned celebrities we know today go to rehabilitation centres to cool their memory" Majek Fashek told the press.

After his rehab stint, Majek Fashek has been giving rave performancesacross the country. See video below for more on the Legend.
