Nigerian Celebrities donate to save OJB Jezreel

According to Nigerian newspapers ThisDay and Leadership, several celebrities have donated money to save talented producer/singer, Babatunde Okungbuwa popularly known as OJB Jezreel from Kidney failure.

OJB Jezreel gave an interview to Encomium magazine on Monday June 24th where he said he has about eight weeks left to get his operation done. “When early diagnosis was done, it was just a case of renal failure. Right now, my two kidneys are gone. We are running dialysis at the moment.

It started two years ago, but gradually depreciated. Most people tend to attribute kidney problem to drinking and smoking. I was told it doesn’t have anything to do with that, because as much as I drink and smoke then, it was casual drinking. Maybe they offer you a bottle of drink and all that but not like I drink 15 bottles a day. I have a friend who has gone through this and he never drank or smoked.

“The whole process of the treatment from pre-process, transplanting process and post-transplanting will cost about $100, 000. In two years I have spent up to N5million which I have been trying to maintain myself. That is why it has been kept secret.” “God willing, I have like eight to ten weeks more to get the transplant done.

It’s strange; I still walk around a little. I can’t eat much though. I trust God and Nigerians for their financial support” the multi-talented producer who produced hits like ‘African Queen” by 2face and “Sengemenge” by KC presh is in need of money to undergo the operation. Well-wishers who want to help can donate to Babatunde Okungbowa through UBA and Zenith and Diamond Bank.

Nollywood continues to rally for OJB Jezreel with donations, by Mavin Records founder, Don Jazzy; Ruggedman,2face Idibia, Iyanya and manager, the Okoyes and few other colleagues and friends. Kelly Hansome released a new single on behalf of OJB urging well meaning Nigerians to support OJB.

Concerts are being organized to help raise more fund. The Lagos concert is tagged 'OJB Must Live Concert' while that of Abuja is tagged 'Abuja Save OJB Concert'.

Entertainers who already confirmed their performances are J Martins, Kefee, Gordons, Nigga Raw, Asu Ekiye, DJ Jimmy Jatt, Samsong, Yemi Sax, X-Project and many others. All proceeds from the event will be donated directly to OJB. The Save OJB has raised N8 million of the N15 million so far.

Dr. Olajide Idris, Honourable Commissioner for Health, Lagos State has donated FREE DIALYSIS TREATMENT to help reduce the cost of Dialysis for OJB.
