Yawns...good morning to you. Sigh...it’s another Monday, the most hated day of the week.

Well the good thing about this week is the public holidays we have on Tuesday and Wednesday. Shout out to our Muslim brothers for these two days that will be dedicated to sleeping and watching 'Game of Thrones'. They are highly needed.

How was your weekend? Mine was rather uneventful. I didn’t get into any trouble and I was well behaved. You can say I had a rare weekend. I was mostly indoors writing and writing.

The only time I stepped out was to fix the battery of my iPhone 4S. The battery was on its last legs and I couldn’t keep carrying two power banks with me so I decided on Saturday to head to Computer Village to get a new battery.

The whole thing didn’t take more than 30 minutes. I was in and out of Computer Village in a jiffy. Feeling accomplished I headed home only for me to get caught by the rain. This is the rainy season so this is often expected.

Speaking of rain, the ‘Rain Maker’ himself Majek Fashek made the news during the weekend. The iconic Reggae singer accused singer Timi Dakolo of covering his classic song ‘Send Down the Rainwithout his permission. Timi Dakolo later released a statement in the day saying he paid Majek Fashek’s manager for the permission to use the song.

In Majek Fashek’s statement baba claimed that he fasted seven days before he came up with that song. This is not surprising. Music is a spiritual thing and don’t forget that after ‘Send Down The Rain’ was released Nigeria experienced its highest rainfall season ever.

We all know Majek Fashek’s career has been plagued by a lot of ‘health issues’. He isn’t the same artiste who signed to Interscope in the early 90’s. He went to rehab last year but I don’t think the rehabilitation was complete.

Chief Ayiri Emami who bankrolled Majek Fashek’s rehab program washed his hands off him after he returned to Lagos against his wishes. According to him, Majek Fashek left for Lagos despite doctors’ orders that he needed to relax.

My advice to Majek Fashek is this. He is obviously not yet back to full strength. Instead of chasing young artistes who are covering his songs he should fast for seven days and beg baba God to fully cure him. There is still small fine tuning to do with Majek Fashek that much is obvious.

My fear for Majek Fashek is that he could have a relapse and then we will be back to square one. This man was great, he still is but he needs to be fully healed mind, soul and body.

Just the way he sought after the face of God for his classic record he needs to seek him now to fully restore him. He needs to retrace his steps or else...
