Babatunde Jezreel Okungbowa is one of the pioneers of the Nigerian music industry. Music producer, artiste and sound engineer are just some of the hats that OJB Jezreel wears.
According to recent reports currently making the rounds, the legendary producer who has crafted beats for the likes of 2Face Idibia has been diagnosed with a Kidney problem; and has been referred to a specialist in Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) Idi Araba Lagos because of how serious the illness has gotten.
