The candle light procession for late Nigerian music producer and singer, OJB Jezreel held yesterday and kicked off at his residence in Surulere, Lagos.
His buddy and pal, Ruggedman has penned a heartfelt tribute in his honour.
According to the rapper who is currently part of the candlelight procession at OJB’s Surulere residence, ‘I am confused at what to say right now. Ojb today July 4 was the day you were born. I would have loved to say happy birthday, but instead of planning to come celebrate with you, we are busy planning for your funeral. It is one of those curve balls life throws at you’.
‘We just have to keep on living and appreciate the fact that God has kept us till today. Ojb, I was honoured to have met you. You blessed me with your friendship and production skills that added great value to my life and career. I will forever be grateful. I will forever celebrate you.You gave the Nigerian music industry countless, unforgettable hits. I am happy you made a mark and that will never be forgotten. May your soul rest Babatunde “OJB Jezreel” Okungbowa.
If he was alive, yesterday July 4, 2016 would have been his 50th birthday celebrations.
OJB died on Tuesday, June 14, 2016 after complications arose from his kidney ailment.
