Reggae musician, Majek Fashek, has been hospitalised in a London hospital for an unknown illness.

The troubled singer was reportedly flown out of Nigeria on Wednesday after he was diagnosed with what sources describe as a serious illness needing urgent medical attention.

Among those said to be taking care of his medical bills is one Captain Hosa Okunbor.

Vanguard quoted an unnamed source close to the musician as saying “all I can tell you is that he’s seriously ill and in a London hospital. He needs our help and prayers.”

Majek, born Majekodunmi Fasheke, has a history of alcohol addiction.

He has been in and out of rehabs, with flashes of recovery usually followed by a relapse.
