A Facebook user, Charles Ogbu has shared the terrible condition of popular Nigerian Singer, Mike Ejeagha after he paid him a visit in Enugu State.

Charles Ogbu revealed that the Singer’s condition is nothing to write home about and blasted Nigerian politicians for abandoning such a talented singer to languish in pains. 

In his words,

"This is the legendary folklorist, Gentleman Mike Ejeagha. A man who has brought honor, glory and majesty to the Igbo Nation and kept the ancient ways of our Ancestors alive through his music delivered mostly as folklores."

"I and some friends visited him yesterday and what we saw was a man living in abject poverty, complete lack and total sense of abandonment. As I type this, his wife has been gravely ill for long. Himself doesn't look strong even. The condition I met this living Legend and his family is something I will not dare write here out of respect for the dignity of his person."

"Good thing is, he lives in Abakpa Nike where anyone could easily go see for him/herself."

"The tragic irony here is that when this man finally joins his Ancestors, almost the whole govts officials in Igbo land will start spending millions upon millions buying up the whole newspaper spaces praising this same man IN DEATH. All the Dr, professor, Chief, Nze n'ozos will start donating millions to a burial committee which will likely be set up by one state govt in Igbo land to give him a befitting burial. All the monies that they didn't give him to take care of himself, his wife's health and enjoy his well deserved senior citizen's status, they will now come and be wasting them in one nonsense called befitting burial."

"Befitting burial for person wey probably died of starvation, neglect and abandonment."

"Even we wey dey here on Facebook, we will all start writing poetry upon poetry on how he was this and that", he concluded.

Are you saying that he's childless as you never mentioned anything about his child(ren)? Did you care to ask him what or where he invested the money he made in his active days?
Are you expecting the government to put him on payroll as a pensioner or what? Did you take a look at those hairs glowing on his arms? Does that signify hardship?
Op, were you expecting the government to stop him from ageing? Honestly, this your story na Mike Eje-aya story

People should know that no one is responsible for their lives except themselves so learn to plan for the future with the little you have now than to live on handouts when the future arrives. I pray help comes his way.

Mike Ejeagha is a traditional institution himself. In a society that lacked safety net, his types needs to be preserved by the government agency incharge of culture for their contributions to the enrichment of our traditions.

Guy nobody owes that man anything, he made money while still active, he never sang for free, he should have thought of his retirement from music and saved for a day like this, you guys should stop calling government or governors .

If you want to raise an appeal fund for him do that, he is nobody's responsibility, his children should look after him, everyone has contributed one way or the other to this country but we don't run crying to the government for help when in difficult situation, please stop harassing people nobody owes him anything, if anyone didn't pay for his services then he should go and collect his money now.

no one owes him one kobo, you people should not even mention the government, he is not their responsibility, why should they help him if they won't help other old people that worked for naija? this man collected money for his shows when he was singing so he did no one a favour then.


this entitlement mentality is so sick, famous artists abroad have gone broke but they don't shout on the government, he is not even a pensioneer. you can contribute money if you really like him

He is truly a legend.
Told so many stories.
It's good to save for rainy days in this world especially in a place like Nigeria, a country that cares for no one at all.
No health care, no insurance, no roads, good education, etc.

I never heard even in a more civilized country that government is responsible for health or financially challenged entertainers as there have been cases of entertainers of old who live in penury especially in the united states,I think its an individual and personal thing to help out I for one love his music and will contribute any little I can if I can get through to him
That said I think where the government comes in is to enforce laws in the music industry in a way that musicians or any entertainers will be able to get royalties due to them now that music can be obtained digitally.I ve downloaded his songs and I don't think he got anything from it and there are those who download these old school songs mix and sell them without a kobo going to the artiste
