Disc jockey Oluwaforijimi Adewale Amu, popularly known as DJ Jimmy Jatt, has opened up about being diagnosed with kidney disease and undergoing a transplant.
In a documentary shared recently on his Instagram page, the 55-year-old recalled his months-long battle with the disease, adding that the successful transplant has given him a second chance at live.
Speaking about his medical condition in the documentary shot at the health facility where he was treated, Jimmy said, “I want to be a face of the survival of kidney disease. I did not want to be a victim. I have been through it, and from now on, I will be very open to talking to people about it on any platform to let them know what it is like.”
The veteran disc jockey added that he was impressed with the quality of treatment he received at the medical centre. He said, “I am impressed with what I got here. I submitted my whole life, and they took care of it.”
DJ Jimmy Jatt revealed that he was happy that the surgery was a success and a chance at life for a second time.
“For me I’m excited. I’m happy I have a second chance at life. That is the most important thing to me. What will happen after, I think God will guide us,” he said.
The veteran said he is ready to go on any social media platform to spread the gospel about kidney diseases and their treatments.
This comes weeks after another music veteran, Eedris Abdulkareem underwent a kidney successful transplant.
