VIDEO: Majek Fashek - Jah Revelation

WOW! Guess who's back.... Majek Fashek! Yes, the Legendary Reggae artiste Majekodunmi Fasheke!

Majek Fashek  the "Rain Maker" was one of the very first Nigerian musicians I listened to as a child. He, alongside the Commodores  Mandators, were the Reggae icons at the time and I still recall several of his hit songs like "Send Down The Rain", "So Long", and this other one that goes "Majek Fashek ina New York" (sorry, I can't remember the title).

Well, Majek Fashek has been living in the United States for well over a decade. Little did I know he still had intentions of making more music. "Jah Revelation" is his new 2011 single. After listening/watching this, you'll agree that this guy remains a genius. I love it! Welcome back, sir!

*O.O*

How is is that a Majek not yet in full form is way better than 80% of current *sober* Naija artistes put together?

MAJEKODUNMI FASHEKE. Even his name would resonate tales from long before that still hold fort in international music scenes. What Current urban Nigerian Artiste can boast that he would remain relevant after TIME, VICE, MEDIA and TALENT DECAY has had their way with them. When life bends you over and VIOLATES you without so much the thought of anointing u first with Vaseline nor scented lubricate oil. THIS MAN stands, even today, as a TESTAMENT to TALENT. A man way ahead of his TIME. I care not that he indulged his vices, but who from us all hasn't a monkey… Read more »

Majek is just a testimony to the self destructive testament of geniuses and icons....to me he is in the mould of fela because............it was only he and fela that managed to create a music genre from the scratch.....FELA with his afrobeat and Majek with his Pangolo music.....just like fela, he was also very passionate about his unique sound...but that peculiar genius eccentricity is nearly ruining him... Pangolo is a heavily africanised reggea whose sound his characerised by african perccussion like agogo, bata, yoruba talking drum and shekere....yea, majek gave that to the world.....he got an international deal that the MOhits… Read more »

I was afraid to watch this video because I love Majek so much I didn't want to cry. Well I think I did anyway but thankfully it was for the music. The talent and the music "so true, Jehovah true". Majek's music I fell in love with so much in the late 80s that I named my first child Rain after his great song Send Down The Rain. I met him in 1997 and spent a lot of time with him and his family in Brooklyn New York just before he finally went off the rails. I have seen him… Read more »

LOL!!! Uncle Ayo, u're right. I meant "Mandators" not "Commodores"... I knew it had "...ors" at the end. At least I tried na. lol. But damn! Those were the days!!!... and those were the guys I listened to as a very lil boy in the late 1980's/ early 1990's. Wow! I'm actually watching "Where are the Prophets" by Peterside Ottong right now. *cold shivers* All dem Edna Ogoli and co. Infact, we need to gist. There are some songs I remember in my head, but I can't recall the artistes or the titles. U'll help me out with those. Thanx… Read more »

Reggae is still far the best genre of music. The reason i love 2face's music more than his fellow in this new dispensation is because he infuses reggae into it. Reggae lives on. Reggae is the music with a message. Long live Majek "The Rain Maker" and long live Reggae music.
