OJ Blaq tells his story on how he survived double kidney failure

Ghanaian rapper and actor, Andy Nii Akrashie aka OJ Blaq has shared a bit of his harrowing story on how he survived kidney failure after he was declared dead by doctors.

The rapper was on top of his music career until he was struck down by double kidney failure.

OJ who was a guest on Live FM’s Lifestyle Café told the host that he survived the sickness because God wanted to give him a second chance.

The hip-hop artiste in his conversation narrated that his condition back then was serious to the point that his urine turned into blood. He also revealed that he lost hope at a point, after he was rushed in an ambulance to about six different hospitals but could not admit him due to lack of beds.

“I was stuck in an ambulance for hours because the hospital couldn’t get me a bed, somebody had to die at the emergency ward in Korle-Bu before they could get me a bed. So I believe God showered me love and miracles, because I knew I had to go”, he said.

The actor disclosed that he was placed on dialysis for three times a week, until she was able to urinate and do things all by himself. He also indicated that his sickness has rather got him closer to God and has completely quit smoking and alcohol intake.

OJ Blaq gained attention for his 2009 street anthem, ‘Chale Wote’ featuring Captain Planet and hiplife artiste, Asem. He was subsequently signed onto Lynx Entertainment, and also got featured in Popular Television series, Sun City alongside Van Vicker, Ekow Smith-Asante and the late Suzzy Williams.
