Nigerian singer and music producer OJB Jezreel passed away on June 14, 2016, following a prolonged battle with kidney ailment just a few days before his 50th birthday.
According to multiple reports, the Delta-born producer’s N50m worth property located on Gbaja street, Surulere, Lagos has been causing a lot of ripples amongst family members recently.
However, contrary to a report by New Telegraph, that the aged father of the deceased, Pa Anthony Okungbowa has asked his son’s widow and first wife, Mabel Babatunde Okungbowa, to vacate the house owned by the late singer, with her kids, LIB investigations reveal that the man, who is over 90 years old and currently resides in his hometown Agbor, Delta State has nothing to do with it.
”It is OJB’s elder brothers that are behind this whole issue. Especially his immediate elder brother, Tony Okungbowa,” a highly place source revealed.
LIB paid a visit to the home and a caveat that reads: “This House is Not for Sale” has been written on the gate of the house, a four-bedroom bungalow, a duplex and a shop.
A residence on the street who asked not to be named also disclosed;
”I know the day they came to write this thing, na OJB brother send boys to come write and they almost fought with his wife, Mabel because she didn’t want them to write it.”
Another source confirmed to newsmen that;
”OJB foresaw this kind of troubles after his death and that was why he had concluded to sell the property himself before he died but the Monday morning that the buyer was supposed to come and pay Fifty Million Naira for the house was the day he died.”
Meanwhile, an exclusive report by Thenetng dated June 14, 2016 partly reads,
”OJB had finalised plans to sell his Surulere residence for N50m today to a commercial bank (name withheld).. As a matter of fact he would have sold the house about three weeks back but a document was missing.
Now we have the document and they were supposed to come and make the payment at 4pm today but Baba don die.”
OJB was married to three wives with whom he had eight children.
