While sniffing through the internet, BlackBox Nigeria gathered that Wikipedia, Channels, TheNation Newspaper and other online platforms are quoting contradictory age for the reggae king.

According to TheNations Newspaper online, one of the most read newspapers in Nigeria, the “Send Down the Rain” crooner, died at age 57 ’in a hospital in New York on Monday, June 1. Our sources are yet to confirm the cause of his death, ’ TheNation online wrote while announcing today.

TheNation Newspaper says the Rain Maker is 57 years

On the contrary, multiple award-winning television station Channels TV wrote,’Before the announcement of his death, Fashek has had a long-running battle with his health. In November 2019, he was hospitalised at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, London. He was 71,’ at the time of his death.

Channels TV said Majek was 71 years at the time of his death

On the part of the free online encyclopedia, created and edited by volunteers around the world and hosted by the Wikimedia Foundation, Wikipedia, The Rainmaker’s recorded date of existence was from ’February 1963 – June 1st 2020’ born in Benin Edo State, Nigeria.

The platform went on to write on the Personal Life and Death segment,’he died on the early hours of June 2nd, 2020 at 71. His death was confirmed by his manager Omenka Uzoma, on the late singer’s official Instagram handle.’

Wikipedia contradicts itself by giving another age. To Wikipedia, Majek was 57 and 71 at the same time.
