Following the death of legendary producer and singer, OJB Jezreel on Tuesday, June 14,music star Wizkid shared on Instagram page his pain, he mourned the late singer and music producer.
The ‘Ojuelegba’ crooner took shared a photo of the late producer with the words “Rip legend, mentor and hero.”
Recall that late last Year, OJB has been credited with discovering Wizkid way before Banky W signed him.
OjB narrated his experience on how he discovered Wizkid’s talent at age 11, even when no body was “feeling him on stage” before banky W sign him eight years later.
He said: “To set the records, I discovered Wizkid’s talent. We basically started his career and I remember when we had to push Wizkid around and take him for shows but nobody was ready to allow him to perform because they were not ‘feeling’ him at that point in time. When he had the chance and said he wanted to move on and try other things, we were behind him then too. If we did not discover him, he would not have been with us. I was the first person to go to his family house to tell them that it would be a nice idea if they allowed him to go into music. We have been there from day one but not everybody knows this story, we don’t just make noise about it. It is not Banky W that discovered him, I did. I would soon be 50 years old and I think it would be funny if I start blowing my trumpet.”
