Ailing OJB Faults Juliet Ibrahim’s ‘Assumptions’ Over His $100,000 Kidney Transplant

Barely a week after actress Juliet
Ibrahim questioned the ongoing
$100,000 funds drive for OJB Jezreel,
the ailing producer has responded.
The Ghanaian actress posted a
message on her page on instagram
where she claimed that a kidney
transplant costs no more than
She therefore wondered why the
people behind OJB’s funds drive were
asking for $100,000.
Speaking to Encomium Magazine, OJB
said that the fee charged for a
transplant depends on the hospital
you go to in India.
He further said the actress erred in
her analysis of the situation.
“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,”
said the singer and producer.
