News of OJB Jezreel’s death causes commotion


Top music producer and artiste, Babatunde Okungbowa known widely as OJB Jezreel is dead.

He died this morning after suffering from a relapse of the kidney disease he successfully operated upon three years ago.

He reportedly had the relapse about two weeks ago with his family keeping him on dialysis.

The producer is survived by his three wives and eight children.

His Kidney Disease

OJB started battling the kidney disease since June, 2013. He left Nigeria for India on Friday, August 23, 2013, after a successful fund raising campaign that fetched him over N26 million, much more than he needed for the kidney transplant.

His first wife, Mabel Okungbowa who travelled with him to India donated her kidney to him.

OJB returned to Nigeria on Saturday, November 30, 2013.
