December 31st, 2013 – OJB Jezreel Blasts Dbanj For Not Donating For His Surgery
Music producer OJB Jezreel who recently returned to Nigeria after kidney transplant surgery in India has opened up on his relationship with D’banj and how Nigerian celebrities used his condition as a marketing avenue.
In a recent interview hear what OJB said about D’banj:
The most disappointing one for me is D’banj because he passed through my hands. He was trained under my tutelage. That is offensive. I don’t care if you’re with Kanye West or not. You can’t forget your root. I won’t call anybody else’s name but I will call his because it hurts. His own hurts very deep. And he never tried to reach out to me. It’s not like we parted on fighting terms.”
“He told me he had to go to London and he went. And when he came back, it was Don Jazzy, and I said okay, that’s fine. And what he did worked and I’m very proud of him. He should have come out to say no, I don’t know why you people are saying all these. I didn’t give OJB N7million, maybe a part of him felt embarrassed because at the end of the day, really, are you not supposed to do something?”
The music producer also revealed how many cheques he received from celebrities all over Nigeria bounced back.
“When P-Square gave me N5million cheque, everybody started treating it as a competition. They were like, they brought N5m. I want to show that I can do more, or equal it. So they will come to my house, some will drop N2m, N1m. You say thank you, they take pictures and go away. Then you drop the cheque in your account and you see that almost N4/5million is being returned back to you that it didn’t clear. You call them and tell them and they tell you they are coming but they haven’t picked the cheques till now.
“The shocking ones are not even the bounced cheques. It’s the ones that when they are coming to meet you in the house to give you money, they come with a whole camera crew. Then, they will say I’m donating one million naira to you and the cameras start recording and maybe the guy’s tape stops, and he says let’s take that again.”
During OJB’s ailing period, D’banj reportedly bought a 25 million naira suit.
Nigerian celebrities love show off. Any slight contribution they make into the society must be noticed…. Na wa o.
