Popstar Wizkid happens to be the latest artist to mourn the late singer and producer, OJB Jezreel. Wizkid shared the photo above via Instagram and wrote; “RIP Legend, mentor and hero! ”
The Late OJB has been credited of discovering Wizkid talent before Banky W signed him.
“To set the records, I discovered Wizkid’s talent. We basically started his career and I remember when we had to push Wizkid around and take him for shows but nobody was ready to allow him to perform because they were not ‘feeling’ him at that point in time. When he had the chance and said he wanted to move on and try other things, we were behind him then too. If we did not discover him, he would not have been with us. I was the first person to go to his family house to tell them that it would be a nice idea if they allowed him to go into music. We have been there from day one but not everybody know this story, we don’t just make noise about it. It is not Banky W that discovered him, I did. I would soon be 50 years old and I think it would be funny if I start blowing my trumpet,” late OJB said in 2015 about Wizkid.
