Veteran broadcaster and ‘king of talk shows’, Emma Ugolee has just reveaaled he has been battling kidney disease for four years now.
All this comes after the death of legendary producer and singer, OJB Jezreel who passed on after a kidney disease relapse. As fans continue to express their shock and grief over OJB’s passing, Ugolee who has been very vocal about his battle with the same disease, a few hours ago took to social media to assure friend and fans on the state of his health.
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.
