Nigerian music producer OJB isdead, 3 years after kidneytransplant

Reports have emerged that Popular music
producer, Babatunde Okungbowa, popularly
known as OJB Jezreel , is dead, three years after
a successful kidney transplant surgery in India.
He was said to have died Tuesday, June 14, in a
Lagos hospital, just one month to his 50th
birthday.
A family source claimed that his kidney
transplant failed completely since last week.
Recall that the producer was down with kidney
related disease, and consequently was flown to
India for a transplant in 2013. On October 21, the
singer successfully underwent the surgery at the
Indian hospital.
After the successful surgery, OJB Jezreel,
showered praises on his first wife, Mama J, for
being there for him and donating one of her
kidneys to save his life.
While speaking after 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.
While describing his wife for the voluntary
donation, OJB had this to say; “She is 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.”
