Babatunde Okungbowa "OJB Jezreel" Is Dead by blaze2cool(m): 11:10am On Jun 14, 2016
Reports reaching NAIJ.com have it that top Nigerian producer, Babatunde Okungbowa aka OJB Jezreel, is dead.

He was said to have died early this morning, June 14, in an undisclosed Lagos hospital. The news of his demise is coming just one month to his 50th birthday as a family source claims that his kidney transplant failed completely since last week. Recall that the producer was down with kidney related disease, and was consequently flown to India for a transplant in 2013. On October 21, same year, the singer successfully underwent the surgery at the Indian hospital. After the successful surgery, the producer came out to thank all his well-wishers, especially his first wife Mabel Okungbowa, popularly called Mama J, who accompanied him on the trip and donated her kidney to him. However, in 2015, the veteran Nigerian musician and producer was reported to have suffered a setback in his recovery from the kidney transplant; but he came forward to deny such reports. He sent out a broadcast message and said:

”Hi my name is Babatunde okungbowa a.k.a OJB Jezreel. I’d like to set the record straight, am at home and healthy with my family going about my normal business. Obviously bloggers don’t research before they post. If they did they would know that a transplant patient will always do routine checkups cus of infections etc. Mmmm nuff said am sure hiptv, orisun tv,encomium,el tv and black jerzie seeing and speaking with me in the past 2 weeks. Wasn’t on a hospital bed or in one! Research proper if it’s gossip worthy or not.”

Reports this morning indicate that the talented musician passed on Tuesday, June 14.

OJB Jezreel is survived by 3 wives, June ‘Ama’, Korede and Mabel and many children. May his soul rest in perfect peace.

"look not towards death and weep, O human! Rather, look towards death and see liberation, a necessary escape route from this mistake called existence"

Duru.

The month of June is a killer month.
Re: Babatunde Okungbowa "OJB Jezreel" Is Dead by Venzal: 11:36am On Jun 14, 2016
On a certain cold starless night, I was in the sitting room preparing for my exams as a secondary school student. Everyone in my household had gone to bed, I alone was awake. While trying to comprehend and cram some stubborn topics and terms, a very cool serenading music filtered into my ears. It was emanating from the gigantic speakers owned by a bar not far from our house.

The music took my mind far away...

All I heard was "I am the one who's searching" It was a brand new music. I couldn't figure out who the artist was (it wasn't until later I got all the details of the song).

Long story short, that song went on to become one of my best ever songs by a Nigerian musician.

It was only yester9t I downloaded the remix he did with Iceprince. And now you telling me this man is gone? sad

What is life? Really, what is life? I can't imagine. RIP OJB, I pray your struggles were not in vain.
