The Night OJB Jezreel Died In His Wife’s Arms 

It was learnt reliably that on Monday, June 13, OJB had just played with the kids and wife, Mabel, a.k.a. Mama J till about 10pm before the family went to bed. But by 3am, an excruciating pain had overwhelmed him.

He groaned nearly helplessly but his wife prevailed on him to endure till 6am when they would rush to Gbagada General Hospital, Lagos, one of the best dialysis centres in the city and where he was always treated.

He cried all through the night and when it was about 6am, Mabel’s younger brother had joined the family to drive the couple to the hospital. He was in his boxers and Mabel had to rush to put a shirt on him.

By that time, he could barely mutter anything. But unfortunately, the doctors’ industrial strike had begun on Monday, June 13, so he would be unable to get anyone to attend to his emergency case.

But Mabel had reached out to another doctor in Isolo. Right there in the Infini SUV (one of the automobiles he gave her) which moved towards Isolo, Mabel screamed into his ears, “you’re behaving as if you don’t want to return home with me.

And you know the kids know that I would always bring you back home after treatment. If you don’t come back with me, what would I tell them?” His body was frail and heavy as he leaned on her. He couldn’t answer.

Alas, Mabel noticed his weight had changed. He had become heavier. Before they could get to the hospital, he gave up the ghost. As at when he died, he had emptied his bank account paying for dialysis which cost N35,000 daily and technically, he died broke.

WHAT KILLED OJB JEZREEL??

After the successful transplant, he was supposed to return to India for a checkup a year after but we gathered from reliable source that he couldn’t go for want of money. Sadly, our source also insists that for about 10 months he couldn’t afford his drugs or any other treatment for that matter. But along the line, he got some reasonable money and resumed his dialysis. But his condition was already deteriorating because of the 10-month break.

So, when he finally made some fortune, the health had deteriorated and impossible to manage. He survived for the longest time among the six patients with whom he had the transplant, according to a credible source.

  1. RIP OJB
    This is a lesson for all in general and celebrities in particular.
    “Never eat with all five fingers!”
    “Save for the rainy day!”
    Buying expensive SUVs and other wonders on wheels, designer wristwatches and clothes, having expensive vacations in choice hotels at exotic destinations in order to keep up with the Joneses or “oppress” or show somebody you’re “big” is not all there is to life.
    Just as history is replete with prodigal sons who squandered their fortunes and ended up beggars, it is also replete with the wise ones, who carefully and prudently managed their windfall, even for their posterity.
    The way some of these high earning entertainers, footballers and other showbiz persons squander money to show off???!!!
    They spend their earnings as soon as it is received on expensive and redundant material things, showing off on social media.
    Wake up and smell the coffee!
    One’s fortunes can take a 360 degrees turn at just a blink of an eye.
    Save for the rainy day!

    Just as history is replete with prodigal sons who squandered their fortunes and ended up beggars, it is also replete with the wise ones, who carefully and prudently managed their windfall, even for their posterity. Learn from the latter.

  3. RIP, it is so very unfortunate that these things occur Nollywood has been in existence since the 1990’s, two decades it is a shame that they cannot bring themselves together to form an insurance policy to cover in times of sickness/death or for their families.. so many times have I read in papers how one singer/actor is severely ill at the point of death needing funds for treatment abroad, even after successful operation asking for more to travel abroad for a check-up.. it is shameful and a laugh by the way what is a young man of his age in this modern world doing with three wives and all that children he’s left behind whose going to take care of them….you see them living in posh house projecting that they won it meanwhile it is rented, designer clothes meanwhile they ain’t paid the designer, posh vehicle meanwhile HP, not paid ion full yet… who are they trying to impress
