Ghanaian actress Juliet Ibrahim is caught in the middle of rising disquiet among showbiz followers in Nigeria following comments she passed on attempts to raize funds for a kidney transplant for ailing producer, singer and song writer OJB Jezreel.
Vanguard Nigeria reports that OJB, who has been diagnosed with kidney failure has made a passionate appeal to the general public to help him raise $100,000 needed for a kidney transplant.
However Juliet Ibrahim believes the $100,000 tag is too high for the transplant because the same service could be procured at half the lot and has subsequently suggested to handlers of the ailing OJB ‘to reach out to the right people and stop harassing celebrities for funds’. The suggestion which she posted on herInstagram page, was emphatic that a kidney transplant should cost no more than $50,000.
Loads of insults and name-calling have trailed the comment since its publication, with some suggesting she should keep her dough if she does not want to dish out any support.
