Ruggedman shared a photo of his friend, writing:

"I am confused at what to say right now. Ojb today July 4th was the day you were born. I would have loved to say happy birthday, but instead of planning to come celebrate with you, we are busy planning for your funeral.

"It is one of those curve balls life throws at you. We just have to keep on living and appreciate the fact that God has kept us till today. Ojb, I was honored to have met you. You blessed me with your friendship and production skills that added great value to my life and career. I will forever be grateful. I will forever celebrate you. You gave the Nigerian Music Industry countless, unforgettable hits. I am happy you made a mark and that will never be forgotten. May your soul rest Babatunde "OJB Jezreel" Okungbowa."

The candle light procession held in OJB's honour is currently under way, beginning from his home in Surulere, through Bode Thomas Street to the Stadium area and back to his home where prayers would be held later tonight.
