Foremost Nigerian disc jockey Oluwaforijimi Adewale Amu, popularly known as DJ Jimmy Jatt, has disclosed his appreciation for life following his successful kidney transplant.
DJ Jimmy Jatt made it known that on September 16, 2022, made it six months he had the transplant done at Zenith Medical and Kidney Centre, a hospital in Lagos, Nigeria.
According to the legendary DJ who is based in the United States with his family, he flew to Nigeria for the surgical process.
In video shared on his social media platforms to show his successful journey, he shared his gratitude to his family, friends, and, importantly, God.
In his words, “My father used the difference between cars & humans to teach me a lesson in humility.
“If you broke cars down, you would find a difference in horsepower, the number of plugs & exhausts, gear systems etc but dissecting any two humans would reveal the same 206 bones, 1 heart, 2 kidneys, 1 skull..etc.So pomposity makes no sense & that has been my creed all my life.”
He added, “We are all the same. But this experience has reinforced the fact that we all also do share the frailty of life in common.
“No one is promised tomorrow.
“A very successful kidney transplant (exactly 6 months today) has further deepened my appreciation for life’s most important things & gratitude to God.”
Speaking further, he noted, “My gratitude joyfully extends to the management and staff of @zenithmedicalandkidneycentre for the most professional execution of the surgery.
“The warmth and reassurance of the entire team were immeasurably cannot imagine pulling through this without my angels.
“My wife, my daughters, I love you beyond any words.
“And to my siblings, where do I begin to thank you. My friends have an amazing support system.”
