Ruggedman has taken to Twitter to remember the late OJB Jezreel on what should have been his 50th birthday if only he had lived.
Today, July 4, 2016, which should have been the late producer’s birthday, turned out to be his candle light procession after he lost his life following a protracted illness on Tuesday, June 14, 2016.
Ruggedman shared a photo of his friend, writing:
“I am confused at what to say right now. Ojb today July 4th 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 honored 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.”
The Candle light procession held in OJB’s honour is currently under way, beginning from his home in Surulere, through Bode Thomas Street to the Stadium area and back to his home where prayers would be held later tonight.
Ruggedman is among a number of celebrities who turned up for the procession as the Music Industry mourns the loss of a legend.
