OJB Jezreel Passes on at Age 49

Music producer and musician, Babatunde Okungbowa AKA OJB Jezreel has died at the age of 49, few weeks to his 50th birthday. Reports confirm that his body has been moved to the morgue at Isolo General Hospital. According to reports from his family, his kidney transplant failed completely since last week and he has been on dialysis every day since the relapse.

Barely 3 years ago, the music producer had a successful kidney transplant in India after his first wife donated a kidney when he suffered kidney failure. OJB, as he is popularly called by fans and colleagues in the industry, has since jumped back to good health after the successful completion of the surgery.

The veteran music producer’s demise came as a shock to friends and fans. His close colleagues have since taken to twitter to express their sadness and confirm the tragic news. Jazzman Olofin, a close friend to the deceased commented via twitter, “RIP brotherly! It’s been a long battle hustle wise and health wise, but the game is what it is. Told you I was glad to be fighting along with you morally and spiritually when we dropped hits that changed the scene. You taught me a few things. We’ll miss you no doubt. RIP bro!”

OJB is survived by three wives and eight children
