Veteran Nigerian musician and producer, OJB Jezreel denies reports that he made over #250m from donation 2 years ago , when he was ill. In a recent interview with New Telegraph, OJB has decided to clear the air on the news.
“If you remove the N16 million the former governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi, gave me, I only realised N9 million from artistes and other sources. This is the first time I would declare such figure; maybe I need to make it open for people to think otherwise,”
“People calculated that I made N250 million from the donation. Where did they get that figure from? I bought my Toyota Yaris in 2007, the second car was brought in 2010 and my Armada was in 2011. The only car that came to my hand newly was an LR3 and it was a gift.
“I didn’t build a house; I am still at Gbaja in Surulere, Lagos. I saw that the house might not be convenient for me when I get back, so we renovated a part for me to stay. I even read that I now stay in Lekki, Lagos,”
