Ugolee who made a return to our screens after a 10-year hiatus with a new talk show ‘The Gist’, wrote:

Too many phone calls yesterday with everyone just checking to see how I was doing.

It all made sense when news filtered in that OJB had just died from a disease I’ve battled with for over 4years now.

The general concern being the psychologic impact of being reminded of the likelihood of one’s demise thanks to the unpredictable and deadly nature of living without a functional kidney.

The 39-year-old presenter had his first TV stint with Minaj Broadcast International (MBI) between 2000 – 2004. He hails from Abia State and holds OND in Banking and Finance, Bsc in Economics and a MBA in Marketing.
