So Sad…OJB Jezreel is Dead



OJB Jezreel

OJB Jezreel

Nigerian producer OJB Jezreel has passed on.

According to multiple reports he died a couple of hours ago after his kidney failed last week.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family in this trying time.

Two years ago OJB had a successful transplant in India after his first wife Mabel donated a kidney to him.

Read the official statement below;

It is with sadness in our hearts that we report that Babatunde Okungbowa, known to the world as OJB Jezreel passed on early this morning, Tuesday, June 14, 2016.

His kidney transplant had failed completely since last week.

He was down with kidney related disease, and consequently was flown to India for a transplant in 2013.

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.

OJB passes on a month to his 50th birthday. His body has been deposited in a morgue at Isolo General Hospital.

He is survived by three wives, June, Korede, Mabel and eight children.

Further information will be communicated to the public through this medium.

      is that what matters to you? The names of his wives? smh

      Your comprehension skills need some work. You may want to read the sentence again – it wasn’t referring to how many wives he had but to the circumtances of his ailment and eventual passing.

      RIP OJB Jezreel.

    May his soul find rest

    His first wife tried. She tried gaaani. In a polygamous marriage? God forbid that her closest and dearest should require a kidney? I doubt OJ would hv done the same if the reverse were to be the case. He woulda require both his kidneyz to satisfy his other wives. Me, l no fit. My love wears spectacles.

    Don’t spread a mat under my comment o. Ya all thinking what l just said?

    So sad, leaves me wondering what we’re fighting for in this world if death is the end of it all… makes us realise that death is inevitable, sooner or later it comes knocking,even after d whole transplant. God rest his soul. May God grant his family the fortitude to bear the loss,what a sad one. #live&letlive #yolo

    We are living in the last days of this wicked system. Satan knows his time is greatly reduced hence he’s intensifying his efforts to ensure people suffer the same fate with him as he has no hope for salvation.

    Now is the time for everyone to reconcile with God because Kal Ho Na Ho (Tomorrow May Not Come)

    RIP OJB. I’m just so tired of hearing about too many deaths in this month alone. Everyday I keep hearing this person died, that person died. May the Lord keep giving us the gift of the breath of life. To the departed ones, a peaceful rest, their loved ones, the fortitude to bear the loss.

    So sad…he really fought to live.

    Please, everyone should be aware of their blood pressure status and live a healthier lifestyle. Blackmen are more prone to have highblood pressure which can affect the kidney, heart and cause stroke. Please know ur status and be compliant with your treatment….exercise and eat healthy. I know there are other causes of kidney disease but high blood pressure is the most common especially among black people.
