OJB Must Live Concert Coming Up... A Relief Show?
It's no longer news that Nigeria’s pioneering music producer, OJB Jezreel is suffering from kidney problem and he needs about $100,000 (i.e N16m) for the medicals.
OJB is reported to have about 10 weeks left for the operation. In an interview with Lobi of Entertainment Splash which aired on TVC, OJB pleaded with Nigerians to save him, stating that the only celebrities that have supported him with their donations is Don Jazzy and Ruggedman and that his account balance is not up to N3m.
Also group of friends and Individuals are putting together a #OJBMUSTLIVE Concert, billed to hold Sunday, 30th June at 1Eleven: 82 Adetokunbo Ademola Str, Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria. Time 3pm and the gate fee is N1, 000 flat. But questions still remain: Where are his colleagues in the industry? What are they saying? Even if one celebrity cannot donate a whole N16m, what's wrong if each of them consider this a life-threatening project and donate about N1m each?...We have dignitaries swimming in wealth, telecom companies keep showering millions on already made celebrities. What is their own contribution?
