Popular Music producer, OJB Jezreel passed away after kidney failure yesterday, June 14, 2016.
The legendary producer was diagnosed of kidney failure in 2013 revealing then he only had a few months to live if he could not raise the funds needed for a kidney transplant in India. His first wife Mabel Babatunde Okungbowa fondly called ‘Mama J‘ came to his rescue by donating one of her kidneys to save her husband’s life.
In an interview with NETNG following his tragic passing, Mama J says she doesn’t regret the decision, Mabel speaks on the music producer’s last moments
”It wasn’t really dramatic, it was just the normal signs we see when he’s about going for his dialysis but this time he was in a lot of pains and I was by his side all through. This is all so sudden because we were still speaking about plans for his 50th birthday over the weekend.”
“I don’t regret it, I did it because I wanted to. I wasn’t forced to do it. After all he’s my husband, so I don’t regret it” She added about how she feels now about donating her kidney to him three years ago.
