Chairman of Collective Management Organization (COSON), Tony Okoroji, has urged corporate organisations to come to the aid of veteran singer and the acclaimed ‘rainmaker’, Majek Fashek, by inviting him for events.
Okoroji, in his emotional post on Facebook, also called on well-meaning Nigerians to revive the deteriorating health of the reggae star.
The COSON boss recalled an experience he had with Majek Fashek some years ago, while they were on tour in Nigeria.
“Early in his career, I was involved in a tour that featured this guy. On a hot day, with the sun shining so bright at Crystal Park in Aba, Majek mounts the stage and once he started singing, ‘the sky is misty and cloudy’ the weather suddenly changed. It began to drizzle.
“As soon as he got to the chorus line, ‘Send down the rain!’ the skies opened up and it began to rain like the stuff was getting out of fashion. This happened from city to city that it became difficult for me to insist that it was co-incidence. In Nigeria, Majek began to be known as the ‘Rain maker’,” he said.

Okoroji said something can still be done to help Majek Fashek.
“I am therefore compelled today to ask my many friends at Nigerian Breweries, Guinness, CocaCola, Pepsi, MTN, Glo, Airtel, Etisalat and the other organizations who deploy music as their major communication platform to give Nigerians a chance to once again enjoy the musical wizadry of the mystical and magical Majek Fashek.
“It is both a good business decision and a sound humanitarian decision. Please put Majek Fashek on your shows.”
