Alex Ibeh popularly known as Mr. Kool has revealed why his bosom friend, OJB Jezreel, who passed on this morning at 49 did not seek any financial assistance on his kidney relapse problem. While pouring out his tribute to the deceased, Mr. Kool who was one of the INEC ambassadors in the last general elections said the ace producer died because he was ‘shy’ and ’embarrassed’ over the outcome of his last public donations.
In his tribute, Mr Kool regaled: “Jigga, what happened? Just weeks ago, You were the first person I called when I heard about ‘Nomoreloss’ passing. We talked abt so many things, bt ur death was not one of them.
Jigga, we talked abt making a Soul/RnB album soon, (Me, you and Paul play)…just for d fun of it.
Yes, u told me ur health was failing again, and sadly u refused to make it public because of prejudice; u said u refused to sick help again because you were shy and embarrassed cos the last time u did, some said u made millions and u “wan use the money buy house” It’s all over now bro. God knows best.
OJB Jezreel, the one producer I made good music with…they say I made quality music and thats bcos i worked wt u.and as I always told some colleagues “we now have beat makers, OJB is a music producer.
Thank u for sharing music with us, OJ thank u for being so kind hearted, thank u for helping grow nigerian music…Thank u for giving hits to young artists who didn’t even have money to pay session.
What can I say; this is so heartbreaking. God knows i’ll miss u. Good night Bro!! Rest in Peace.”
