Succour For OJB Jezreel
Help has started trickling in for ailing Babatunde Okungbowa, the talented music producer known as OJB Jezreel, who has been down with kidney ailment.
In a chat with singer Nomoreloss, who heads the fund raising committee for the treatment of OJB, he said donations have started coming in as more people are now convinced that their appeal for funds has not been a scam but a desperate cry for help.
“We want to seize this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported OJB with money and prayers, may God be with you. We are still far away from reaching our target of $100000 but we are confident in God’s grace and the beautiful hearts of all that now know of OJB’S health condition,” Nomoreloss said.
Some weeks ago, reports filtered out that OJB Jezreel had been diagnosed of a kidney-related ailment and is reported to be in need of N16 million for a kidney transplant abroad.
On 24 June, a team of OJB’s entertainment and media friends visited his home at 4 Gbaja Street in Surulere to personally donate whatever they can and to ensure that he get back on his feet. They included DJ Jimmy Jatt, Wale Oluwaleyimu, Mr Kool, Nomoreloss, Jesse King, Abounce, Vector, Koopa Victory, Spydaman, Kage, Brain and Semione.

Unconfirmed reports also had it that Tuface and Don Jazzy have reached out to the ailing producer.
