Music producer OJB dies a month to his 5oth birthday, 3 years after kidney transplant
Popular music producer, Babatunde Okungbowa, popularly known as OJB Jezreel is dead.
He died this morning, June 14 at a Lagos hospital barely three years after having a successful kidney transplant in India and a month to his 50th birthday.
He was said to have died early this morning, June 14, in a Lagos hospital, just one month to his 50th birthday.
According to a family source, he alleged that OJB’s kidney transplant failed completely since last week.
It may be recalled that the producer was ill with kidney related disease, and was flown to India for a transplant in 2013. On October 21, the operation was performed on the singer at an Indian hospital which ended successfully.
After the successful surgery, OJB Jezreel acknowledged his first wife, Mama J, for her support and benevolence in donating one of her kidneys to save his life.
On his arrival to the country from India, OJB revealed that despite discouragement from family and friends, his wife still made the crucial donation to save him, even at the risk of her life.
He further described her as a wonderful person because “it is one thing if God is telling you to do something but another to do it. It takes a lot of courage to actually do it. Just as Jesus had made the water for Peter to walk on, Peter needed a lot of courage to take that step and that was what she did at that dying minute. Even when the doctors came to tell her that they would have to cut her all the way to the back and would have to remove a rib so they could have access to the kidney, she still agreed to go through it. It takes courage to go through with it, so, I will say she is a courageous woman.” He added.
May his soul Rest in Peace!
