Last night Nigeria’s legendary reggae artist, Majek Fashek, graced the stage at the Afropolitan Vibes at Freedom Park in Lagos to the delight of his fans.
The show was his first since he left a rehabilitation centre in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, where he was treated for addiction to drugs.
Fashek who looked healthier and fatter than he has been in recent years thrilled the crowd to some of his hit songs including Little Patience, Holy Spirit and Send down the Rain.
The Benin City born-musician has worked with various artists worldwide including Tracy Chapman, Jimmy Cliff, Michael Jackson, Snoop Dogg, and Beyoncé.
Here are reactions to Fashek’s show below:

Listening to Majek Fashek holy spirit and the lyrics just kinda pulled me in. Am wondering how the man lost it.
