Video: Veteran Nigerian Musician OJB Jezreel Speaks On His Depreciating Health & Proposed Kidney Transplant

I am sure most of you must have heard about the talented singer, songwriter and producer, OJB Jezreel's illness. He needs 16 million naira for his kidney transplant and has been calling on Nigerians for help.

The producer has spoken to several news and entertainment stations  about his present predicament. For example here's an excerpt from the interview he had with Encomium magazine about his condition;
“When early diagnosis was done, it was just a case of renal failure. Right now, my two kidneys are gone. We are running dialysis at the moment. It started two years ago, but gradually depreciated. 

“Most people tend to attribute kidney problem to drinking and smoking. I was told it doesn't have anything to do with that, because as much as I drink and smoke then, it was casual drinking. Maybe they offer you a bottle of drink and all that but not like I drink 15 bottles a day. I have a friend who has gone through this and he never drank or smoked. 
“The whole process of the treatment from pre-process, transplanting process and post-transplanting will cost about $100, 000. In two years, I have spent up to five million Naira which I have been trying to maintain myself. That is why it has been kept secret. 
“God willing, I have like eight to ten weeks more to get the transplant done. It’s strange, I still walk around a little. I can’t eat much though. I trust God and Nigerians for their financial support”
Also watch below his most recent interview with Hip TV and Channels TV.

Please people no amount is too small, let's help out OJB. Keep him in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you all.
