Afro hip-hop musician, Joshua Olonitola, A.K.A Slim Joe, has appealed to Nigerians to help him with funds in order to go for a kidney transplant.

Olonitola, in an interview with our correspondent, said he had been diagnosed with end-stage kidney disease since November 24, 2020, and had been advised to go for a kidney transplant.

 He said, “I went for a check-up in 2020 and was diagnosed with end-stage kidney disease. I was placed on dialysis immediately and the medical consultant advised that a transplant is needed urgently.

“I have been seeking help from friends and families but haven’t reached the amount needed. I am about to lose hope, but giving up is not an option. I am here to seek help from the public to help save my life. No amount is too small, help lift me up again.”

A letter from the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja confirmed that Olonitola was being managed in the hospital and would need N8.5m for a kidney transplant.

The letter sighted by our correspondent was signed by the director of clinical services in the hospital, Dr Adebowale Adekoya.

“The patient is currently on twice-weekly haemodialysis; he has been counselled and enrolled in the kidney transplant programme of the hospital.

Olonitola could be reached on his mobile no, 08066595599, while donations could be sent to his Access Bank Account – 0050314101.
