 AILING veteran music producer, OJB Jezreel is yet to undergo kidney surgery more than one month after he left our shores. But privy sources said he is almost ready for the procedure after concluding all necessary medical tests.


“OJB is responding to pre-transplant treatment and would go for the procedure later in October.”


ENCOMIUM Weekly also confirmed that the delay was necessary to enable the medical team do a ‘perfect’ job for the popular artiste, who flew to India on Friday, August 24, 2013, with his wife, Mama J.


OJB was diagnosed with acute renal disease months back.  He had to mobilize over N26 million through kind-hearted Nigerians to save his life.  With all the funds he needed in his hands, he jetted out to India late August for kidney transplant.  Weeks after, OJB is yet to go for his surgical procedure.  But anxious fans and associates have now been assured that he is in stable health and would go for the long expected kidney transplant in October.


OJB  who has been in the music industry for over two decades is credited with scores of hit songs, including 2Face Idibia’s iconic debut album, African Queen.
