News Update: See OJB Jezreel’s response to Juliet Ibrahim’s query on raising $100k for kidney transplant
Days ago, Ghanaian actress Juliet Ibrahim posted a message on her instagram page stating that kidney transplant does not cost more than $50k and wondered why people raising funds for OJB were requesting for $100, 000.
Well, ailing music producer and singer, OJB Jezreel, told Encomium magazine
“The mistake she’s making is that it depends on the hospital you are going to in India. She says she runs a foundation, they might give her a rebate. The procedure itself is $55, 000. When you take out $55, 000, you are left with $45, 000. What about the running cost of the procedure? You don’t go to India only to come back and start asking for help again. At least, I need some money to maintain myself for the next one year. So when you factor in all these costs, add air tickets and lodging, you will appreciate what we are talking about.
