OrijoReporter.com, Majek Fashek’s death

Veteran reggae artiste Majek Fashek has accused late Head of States, Gen. Sani Abacha of killing Afrobeat king, Fela Anikulapo Kuti.

Fela Kuti died of AIDS-related complications on August 2, 1997 at a time Abacha was Nigeria’s de facto president.

Fashek leveled this allegation on Friday during a talk-show programme, Your View, on Television Continental where he was a guest.

He said: “Am Fela’s musical son. Fela is Nigeria’s Jesus and he was killed by Abacha who injected him with HIV in Maiduguri to promote the disease.”

Fashek who exhibited he is still battling mental illness at a stage during the interview grabbed one of the all-female presenters, Nyma Akashat Zibiri and denied he was at anytime in rehab for drug addiction in Abuja.

“I did not go to Rehab, i went for seclusion because i was not using my drug and when you go to the rehab you use your drug and received injection.”
