Nigerian producer OJB Jezreel has passed on.

OJB whose real name is Babatunde Okungbowa is reported to have passed away a couple of hours ago after his kidney failed last week.

OJB sadly passes on a month to his 50th birthday.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family in this trying time.

Two years ago OJB had a successful transplant in India after his first wife Mabel donated a kidney to him.
