OJB Jezreel and Mabel in 2013

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”.

    God bless you mamaJ,at least you gave him a bit more time. Only wish he had lived more years,you gave him a great gift ma.
    Wonder how Nomoreloss and OJB welcomed each other,and what they talked about. The man who worked tirelessly to raise funds for OJB back in 2013, gone and the one whom funds were raised for also gone, less than 3months apart….Life and it’s intricacies, we should just keep doing good at all times..

    He should have been flown to the UK or USA. Why going to India of all places. Actress Ngozi Nwosu had a similar ailment n she was flown to the UK. She’s better after all n looking extremely good. People donated for OJb n he had sufficient fund, they should have targeted a better country

    @Tenebabe, i agree with u they would have taking him to US,Germany, London,Italy etc but not India i dont trust them, those people are bad they sees blacks like shit. Who knows whether they transplant the wifes kidney on him? Maybe they gave the wife kidney to somebody else while they transplant a defected kidney on him, it is not the first time they practise such thing.
    Its in impossible to die after a kidney transplant specially when the donator is healthy and the kidney is healthy. Many Nigerians who had a kidney transplant in European country are okay and living fine.
    May his soul rest in peace and may God be your comfort Mama J.

      And what else do you know about organ transplant apart from the donor being healthy? There are more to it, acute, subacute and chronic rejections happen all the time even in the so called US and UK.
