In 2013 when late producer OJB Jezreel needed a kidney transplant urgently, his first wife Mabel Babatunde Okungbowa fondly called ‘Mama J’ was the one who saved the day by donating one of her kidneys to save her husband’s life.
Sadly OJB passed on yesterday at the age of 49 after his kidney failed about two weeks ago.
In an exclusive chat with NETng, Mabel shares the last moments of OJB as well as the fact that she doesn’t regret donating her kidney to her late husband.
On his last moments she said “It wasn’t really dramatic, it was just the normal signs we see when he’s about going for his dialysis but this time he was in a lot of pains and I was by his side all through. This was all so sudden because we were still speaking about plans for his 50th birthday over the weekend”
Talking about the fact that she donated her kidney to him she says “I don’t regret it, I did it because I wanted to. I wasn’t forced to do it. After all he’s my husband, so I don’t regret it”.
