Majek Fashek Reveals Why Youths Should Stay Away From Drugs

Majek Fashek held a press conference in Abuja yesterday August 10, 2015.

The iconic musician opened up on his addiction to drugs and why Nigerian youths should stay away from drugs.

Charly Boy and Majek’s backup singer, Monica Omorodion Swaida were present at the conference.

Majek said “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”

“I publicly admitted to addiction to alcohol because so many things are being said about me on the social media and nobody forced me to the rehab. Propaganda of scandal was being monotonous to my generation. I want to run from the stress of Babylon of Africa and I need to be credited for the works I have done” he concluded.

On the singer’s rehabilitation, his doctor, Dr Vincent Udenze said “Rehabilitation is a long term journey, even if he leaves the centre and goes home, he is still on that journey and that is how we conceptualise rehabilitation”

  1. Ha, stay away ke? They should not stay o! “Danwo lo bi iya okere”. They should come and ask me, when you don’t look before you leap – if you are alive to tell the story, good luck o (without Jona). – you will be my next neighbour, we would gist about our experiences. And if you cross to the other side like Bobby Kristi that left the estate, mansion and the ego, ‘ko kile’.

  2. Don’t mind the haters that go about saying you are being forced to the rehab… You are old enough to know what’s wrong from right.
