Seven months ago, Emami Ayiri took Majek Fashek to a rehabilitation center and was responsible for his well being. News breaking out, is that both of them have gone their separate ways.
Chief Ayiri Emami narrated to Punch in an interview:

“Majek Fashek is not under my care. When he left the rehabilitation home in Abuja, the doctors said that he needed to relax. They said he should stay off the music scene for some time. I wanted him to stay in Warri and relax. I provided everything that he needed to be comfortable. But he insisted on going back to music almost immediately. He kept insisting and, after a while, I had to let him go. That was it.”
“He wanted to join my music label, but I said no. I didn’t want other people to think that I did him a favour because I wanted him to sign on to the label. Instead, I told him that I could get him a good manager that would take care of him and his career, get him a car and every other thing…I travelled and by the time I returned one evening, Majek was already in Lagos.”
 When Punch confronted Majek Fashek, he gave his account of what transpired below :

“We are still doing business together, but it is not like it used to be. I am an American-trained musician. When I was in America, I studied music and music business. So I am not in the same level as the average Nigerian musician. I am an international musician. Emami wanted to place me on the same level as Nigerian musicians and to control my music business. So I decided to move.”
