Majek says Charles Novia and Azuka Jebose have connived to cheat him and profit off his sweat.
Majek Fashek is undoubtedly one of Nigeria’s biggest musical exports; he attained international fame nearly 20 years ago with ‘Send Down The Rain’ and has been known worldwide since then.
However, Majek might be one of Nigeria’s most troubled artistes, with repeated drug and mental issues that have threatened to end not only his music, but also his life.
Following a fresh round of rehab in the UK, he recently granted an interview to ThisDay Newspaper where he spoke of his recovery, plans for the future and how former partners Charles Novia and Azuka Jebose have connived to cheat him and profit off his sweat.
Majek said, ‘I want Nigerians to please help me stop Charles Novia and Azuka Jebose from defrauding me. A lot has been happening, which I am giving a little tip. I have never had a contract with Charles Novia.
‘He put me in trouble with my American boss. Even the ‘Little Patience’ Album – I did not receive a penny from it. The song was recorded by Coral Music, Los Angeles.
‘And I am still having problems with them because I tried to help him use the song to boost him for the Nigerian audience to help his November Records.
‘Because of his scam that November Records is down, I have never had a managing or recording contract with him. He should present our contract to Nigerians, he owes Coral Music.
‘That’s why I had big problem with Coral Music. Azuka is full of scandal. I have never had contract with them and they have no right to negotiate my business; they have been using me for too long.’
He also asked to know who singer Timi Dakolo paid before making use of his song ‘Send Down The Rain’, going on to state his lawyers will contact Azuka Jebose soon.
‘I also need Timi Dakolo to present the management he paid to and how much by going to use my song and earning money from iTunes and making money from Send down the rain.
‘Azuka, a cab driver in America, whom I gave support – they are friends. I am not joking because my solicitor will contact him soon and we will make it public.’
