Why i didn’t donate my kidney to OJB Jezreel- Late producer’s 3rd wife

The third wife of late music producer, Babatunde Okungbowa, aka OJB Jezreel, Korede Okungbowa, has explained the reason her senior wife donated her kidney to their late husband and not her.


The mother-of-two and former dancer said she offered to be her late husband’s kidney donor when the father-of-eight had kidney transplant in India in 2013.

“Initially when we went for tests, we were all fit to donate, but then, I had just given birth to my baby girl through CS, so the doctors ruled me out. Eventually it was Mama J (first wife) that was the donor and I was asked to come and take care of them.

“In retrospect, I feel good about that opportunity; it bonded the family in a very unique way. It was an emotional time for me. That Jigga had to go through that process was heart breaking and seeing Mama Jay having to go through all that was hurting. There were nights she couldn’t sleep and she cried, and at such times, I couldn’t hold back the pain. So, we cried all through the night together and that kind of drew every¬body closer. And all the while, June was taking care of the kids back here in Nigeria,” she told The Sun.
