Late OJB’s Third Wife, Korede Reveals Why She Couldn’t Donate Kidney To Ailing Hubby

OJB Jezreel's third wife, Korede
Okungbowa in a recent interview,
explained why she was unable to
donate her own kidney for her husband
when he was in bad condition and in
dire need of a kidney transplant.

OJB Jezreel suffered kidney failure in
2013 and it was his first wife, Mabel
Okungbowa aka Mama J who stepped
forward to save her ailing husband by
donating one of her kidneys. Many had
no idea what led to Mabel taking on the
responsibility of being the one to
donate a kidney to save OJB.

In a chat with Sun, Korede, who bore
two children for the late music icon
shared, 'Initially when we went for
tests, we were all fit to donate, but
then, I had just given birth to my baby
girl through CS, so the doctors ruled me
out. Eventually it was Mama J (first
wife) that was the donor and I was
asked to come and take care of them'.

She added, 'In retrospect, I feel good
about that opportunity; it bonded the
family in a very unique way. It was an
emotional time for me. That Jigga had
to go through that process was heart
breaking and seeing Mama Jay having
to go through all that was hurting.
There were nights she couldn't sleep
and she cried, and at such times, I
couldn't hold back the pain. So, we
cried all through the night together and
that kind of drew everybody closer. And
all the while, June was taking care of the kids back here in Nigeria".
