Media reports said OJB died on Tuesday morning after his kidney failed.

The news comes three years after the producer successfully raised money to undergo a kidney transplant in India.

The surgery was successful at time, and it is not clear what caused him to relapse.

He had lavished praises on his wife, Mama J, for donating one of her kidneys to save his life.

"She is a wonderful person...when the doctors came to tell her that they would have to cut her all the way to the back and would have to remove a rib so they could have access to the kidney, she still agreed to go through it. It takes courage to go through with it, so I will say she is a courageous woman," he said.
