OJB’s managment team have confirmed what many had speculated already earlier yesterday. They confirmed that it was indeed kidney failure that caused the death of the veteran producer.
In an official statement to the press, Moradeya Folajaiye, OJB’s manager indicated that the producer’s kidney had failed last week, just three years after receiving a transplant in India.
Here’s the full statement from the management:
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.
