May 11, 2015 – OJB Jezreel Denies Kidney Disease Relapse, Blasts Nigerian Bloggers Posting False News
Lagos-based singer Babatunde Okungbowa popularly called OJB Jezreel who survived a life-threatening kidney disease after Lagos State Government and other Nigerians contributed money for his operation several months ago was rumoured to have experienced a relapse.
Earlier today, almost all the media outlets in Nigeria claimed that OJB has been admitted for kidney problem again less than 2 years after his first ordeal.
As we speak, the entertainer has debunked the story.
He said he went for routine checkup to ensure his kidney is infections-free.
He took a swipe at Nigerian bloggers who reported the story without confirming the truth.
In his words:
“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. Wasn’t on a hospital bed or in one! Research proper if it’s gossip worthy or not”
Naija bloggers too like copy copy. See how una come allow ‘comedian Basketmouth’s brother’ to downgrade una.
