OJB calls out D’banj in new intervew, says celebs used his donation as competition


During an interview with Inspiration FM’s Gloria Maduka post surgery, veteran music producer OJB Jezreel addressed controversy surrounding his donations, said celebs used it as competition and calls out Dbanj. Here’s why he’s unhappy with D’banj. During his fund raiser many months back, there were rumours that D’banj gave his former music producer N7m, a report that D’banj didn’t deny. OJB says D’banj didn’t give him a dime and was upset that he didn’t try to set the record straight

“The most disappointing one for me is D’banj because he passed through my hands, he was trained under my tutelage. That is offensive. I don’t care if you’re with Kanye West, you can’t forget your root. I won’t call anybody else’s name but I will call his because it hurts. His own hurts very deep. And he never tried to reach out to me. It’s not like we parted on fighting terms.  He told me he had to go to London and he went. And when he came back it was Don Jazzy, and I said OK, that’s fine. And what he did worked and I’m very proud of him, the love, that’s why it hurts more. He should have come out to say no, I don’t know why you people are saying all this, I didn’t give OJB N7million, maybe a part of him felt embarrassed because at the end of the day, really, are you not supposed to do something?” OJB says during the interview

He also talked about how people used his fund raiser as competition and once again addresses the bounced cheques. Continue….

“When P-Square gave me N5million cheque, everybody started treating as a competition. They were like, they brought N5m, I want to show that I can do more, or equal it. So they will come to my house, some will drop N2m, N1m, you say thank you, they take pictures and go away. Then you drop the cheque in your account and you see that almost N4/5million is being returned back to you that it didn’t clear. You call them and tell them and they tell you they are coming but they haven’t picked the cheques till now.

“The shocking ones are not even the bounced cheques. It’s the ones that when they are coming to meet you in the house to give you money, they come with a whole camera crew. Then they will say I’m donating one million naira to you and the cameras start recording and maybe the guy’s tape stops, and he says let’s take that again (Laughs).

“There were people in my dialysis that I gave N100k each to pay for their dialysis, we didn’t publicise it, we didn’t take photos with them, because I felt that was unnecessary.”

  1. Some of them tot you will not survive the operations,While some used it for selfish political reasons.
    However, stop parading yourself in media houses to mentioned Names of those who gave you money and those who did not. It sounds childish. Thank God you are back in good health. Make preparation to return back to work and learn to put the cause of your ill health in check. God will see us through.Amen.

  2. I’m really glad that u came back hale and hearthy, however going on air and talking about those who gave you donationsn those who did not and those whose ignored allegation really sounds ungrateful! You should be thankful to God that ure alive..whoever went to your house with a camera crew had there reasons for it, and u should leave them to God. They worked had for their money, and on a neutral ground, they whole u nothing(except if there’s something we don’t know)….Time to grow up and face reality is NOW OJB!!

  3. Shut up idiot must you mention names,be thankful you’re back in good helth,you don’t care if he’s with Kanye west or not,you’re a hatter bastads!

  4. Nigerians should grow up pls!!! It is this attitude of just leave everything to God that is killing this country. OJB is a celeb in his own right and does not deserve to be treated shabbily just becos he fell to bad times. He is back and should set the record straight. Though I rather he calls out those who actually contributed to his well being while he allows others to use their tongue to count their teeth.

  5. I will suggest he mention names that gave him money and how much was given to him in total sum,how much he spent and how much is left.With this, his claims to me will be justifiable.

  6. It pains a lot when those who you think would be of assistance turned you down when you need them most bsds for him to have mentioned A Banj he must have contributed to his progress, so that would ease his mind let hin, he should ket bye gone be bye gone and give thaanks to God for his well being

  7. Fidelia I agree wit u via 9ja n dia leave î†̥ 4 God talk. Ojb no call names he only calld dbanj bcos of ♓☺W close he is to him and 4 d fact dat he claim 2 give him 7m which he didn’t give. If na me, i no go just call him name_ I go cause a̶̲̥̅̊m join. Naija r good in showin off n tryn 2 take glory 4 wat they mite not even do sef. In everytin we d̶̲̅ε̲̣γ do we go carry wayo enta dia. U can imagine 4 donation 4 person 2 carry fake cheque and camera crew cum to deceive pple just like wetin our politians d̶̲̅ε̲̣γ do everyday 4 media

  8. OJB…i hv nt much to type jst three important words….1….take God your 1st priority..neva eva leave him…..2…stop smoking &ddrinkn cos dats wht i knw will cause ur former problem…..3….dont eva eva trust & depends on human bein cos dey fall your hands d more whn u need dem d most….

  9. Now no one told OjB jezeerel that he needs to be told that P.R iş needed in this situation.He simply managed it badly.İ just hope his career kicks off again becos he iş a great producer.
