Nigerian producer and artiste, Babatunde Okungbowa – popularly known by his stage moniker, OJB Jezreel – who in 2014 underwent a kidney transplant in India has reportedly suffered a relapse of the kidney ailment.
According to a report by Yes! International magazine, OJB is currently on admission at the General Hospital, Lagos after he suffered a relapse about two weeks ago.
An unnamed source who was said to have spoken to the magazine posited thus: “The medical experts who attended to OJB at the Lagos Hospital were shocked at the sudden relapse despite last year’s successful kidney transplant. They chided him for not going back to India for post-surgery check-ups as specified by the team of Indian doctors in the medical report given to him”.
When contacted over the issue, OJB’s third wife, Korede said: “I don’t want to say anything about it unless he talks about it himself. Have you called him? Because I have not seen the story and he has even warned me about it. So please I don’t want to have anything to do with it unless he talks about it himself. He warned me and I have to respect and obey my husband.”
