OJB ….. Finally Gone?
OJB GONE 30MINS AGO
In 2013, OJB Jezreel suffered from cancer which according to him at that time needed a transplant to live. His two kidneys were gone. The whole process of the treatment from pre-process, transplanting and post-transplanting cost about $100,000.
OJB Jezreel got cured after Nigerians came to his need and his wife Mabel offered to give him her kidney. According to his wife on why she helped her husband at the time; she said
I did not even think twice about it, I had it and I gave it to him. He is my husband, the father of our children and I love him. This is somebody I have been with all my life. I did not tell anybody before I decided to, not even my parents because I had foreseen their reaction. There was no reason to inform them. When I married him, I told God I wanted the both of us to grow old together and live to see many generations. I am sure God knew this situation before he brought us together because not only am I a match for him, we are the same blood group and we are both stubborn.
After his treatment, OJB Jezreel was asked about the future and he said;
Well, I see my life now as a second chance, and only God knows what is left of that life so whatever is left of that life, I want to see as many lives I can touch, that’s my plan.
With tears in our eyes, we hope the great producer REST IN PEACE AND IN THE BLOSSOM OF THE ALMIGHTY GOD.
