The demise of reggae exponent, Majek Fashek a.k.a. the Rain Maker in faraway New York in the evening of June 1, has thrown the Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON) into a mourning mood with all flags at the COSON House in Ikeja, the headquarters are now flying at half mast.

A condolence register has also been opened at the reception of COSON House for all those who want to pay tribute to the memory of the unique Nigerian artiste to do so, whilenvideos of his remarkable performances are playing on the various video screens at COSON House.

Speaking on the passing of the reggae legend, COSON Chairman, Chief Tony Okoroji said, Majek would be remembered in various ways and that they (his colleagues) would celebrate his life as an incredibly talented Nigerian.

Said he: “In various ways, we will celebrate the life of this incredibly talented Nigerian. I hope that before the day is over, I will speak with Randy, his son who lives in New York. We have to deal with the time difference between Lagos and New York and we will make the necessary announcements.

“Everyone knows that Majek Fashek was not just my colleague. He was my friend. He stood by my side and supported me from head to toe over many years. We have shared many memorable moments together. His passing on tears at my heart but I am consoled by the fact that there is no need to immortalize Majek Fashek. He has immortalized himself through his unforgettable songs and lyrics. We will celebrate Majek Fashek to inspire the young people in the creative family.

“There is almost nothing that COSON has done that Majek Fashek did not fully participate in. He was 100% dedicated to the COSON cause. Majek was not just a COSON member by name. He was a COSON member in his heart and indeed. All COSON members across Nigeria and all of our staff at COSON House which he visited regularly, will greatly miss this Nigerian of incomparable talent, the great “rain maker.

“Since yesterday, it has been raining across the nation. It has to as the great Rainmaker transits. It is said that Rastas never die. I take it that my brother, friend and colleague, the iconic Majek Fashek has not died, He has travelled and one day, we will join and make music together”.
