OJB must have had double celebrations on the 4th of July, 2013. First it was great to be alive to witness another birthday celebration. The other is the news that Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi pledged to support him with $100,000 for his kidney surgery operation.
The news was brought into the lime light by his funds manager, NoMoreLoss on the 3rd of July, 2013.
A broadcast from NoMoreLoss reads:
Dear supporters of #OJB, at this time 10.30pm 3rd of JULY 2013, we have on record that Governor Rotimi Amechi of Rivers state has approved $100k for OJB’s KIDNEY TRANSPLANT to be officially handed to him on friday.
We wish to express our appreciation to all that stood by OJB in his time of need with prayers and generous donations.
We thank the fans,friends members of the public, the Nigerian entertainment community as well as the many that wish to remain anonymous. We pray that God rewards you with help before you cry out for it.
And to all the people who worked tirelessly behind the scene to make sure the life of a stranger in need was saved we say GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
