Majek Fashek stunned many when he performed recently .His robust figure was a far cry from his once shrinking look.Speaking to journalists on how rehab saved him,he said
To fully explain what the rehab was to me, I have a song titled, a living dog is better than a dead lion. It captures how I feel. I give thanks to the Most High for where I am today,”“For me, it was an opportunity to dry out. They say recovering addicts return from rehab dry, but, somehow, after a month or a year they go back to their old habit but I must say I have been vilified. I have heard people say all sorts of things about me, but I need people to understand that stress can make anyone do anything. It is true that I have an addiction, but I trust that I will be fine,”
“Growing up, I never tasted alcohol or smoke but you know, it is actually part of the lifestyle of a performing musician.“You must be high. But now, I am working on an alternative form of inspiration. And I am not the only one. In many genres of music, from reggae to rock, one needs to be high to play some rock songs.”
When asked if he thinks musicians need to be under the influence of some substance to perform, Majek noted:
“For certain genres of music, you must be high, like highlife, rock music, reggae. For a man like Bob Marley to maintain that level, it must not have been easy. But I have calmed down, and will find a way.”he said
On how he thinks he will be able to compose or perform without using substances as a song writer and singer, he said, “Now I am cold, very cold. I will try to do music without using drugs.
Speaking further, Majek urged upcoming acts to desist from drugs and women.
He said, “If you want to go far in music, as an upcoming act, don’t womanise. Stay away from hard drugs and too much alcohol.”
In a thankful tone, Majek appreciated all those who prayed for him and wished him well while in rehab.
He said, “It is one thing to go into rehab and another to come out.
“The doctors gave me first class treatment, but God healed me, and I give him the credit. Only God and the Lord Jesus Christ can deliver.The good thing about rehab for me is that it helped to right my image
