Abuja - OJB Jezreel is planning on returning to work following his kidney transplant insisting he does not want to "just sit down and be idle."
The producer returned to Nigeria with his wife Mabel 'Mama J' Okungbowa - who donated the life-saving kidney - on November 30 after spending three months at the Colombia Asian Hospital in India where he had the surgery.
Although he has been advised to rest he insists on getting back to production which he has always been "passionate" about and claims he must "take care" of his family.
The father of eight told NET: "It certainly feels good to be back and to still be alive.
"Now that the surgery has been successful, the next mission is trying to maintain the kidney so that it doesn't relapse. The doctors prescribe that I chill and relax for six months, but I can't afford to do that when I have a family to take care of. I have to get back to work.
"I think the help anyone can render me at this time is to give me jobs to do. I don't want to just sit down and be idle. This production thing has always been my passion and so I need to get back to it."
OJB is planning to pen a book which tells the story of his life, explaining his success as a producer and detailing his kidney ailment.
He explained: "I'm working on a book which I have titled The Celebrated Beggar. It will capture of my experience as a producer, musician up to the travails of my kidney ailment. I want to talk about how one can go off the spotlight in just a single moment and a whole lot of things."
