Was born in 1942 at Ilese-Ijebu in North-East Local Government area of Ogun State. Attended St. Paul’s Anglican Primary School in the same town from 1948-1954.
For secondary education, he attended Joint Provincial Grade Two Teacher Training College, Sagamu in Ogun State from 1957-1960.
His teaching career spanned over a period of seven years, starting from L. A. Secondary Modern School, Oke-Agbo, Ijebu-Igbo (1961-1964) to Ladigbolu Grammar School, Oyo (1965) and ending as Vice-Principal at Nigeria Premier College (now Jibowu High School, Yaba ) from 1966-1967.

Through private studies, he qualified as a Chartered Secretary in 1963 and also qualified as a Cost and Management Accountant in 1967. He became a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria in 1972.
He took up appointment as an Accountant with Guinness Plc in 1968 and rose to the position of a Chief Accountant before resigning and joining Peat, Marwick, Mitchell & Co (now KPMG) as a Management Consultant in 1974. He rose to the position of an Executive Director before retiring voluntarily in 1983 into full –time private business of management consultancy practice and agriculture. He established Bena Farms Limited (A poultry farm for production of table eggs and day-old chicks ) in 1979 at Ilese - Ijebu and retired full-time into this business in 1983.

The attack by assassins on his life marked a turning point in 1993 resulting in diverting his attention from the farm business to Herbal Medicine. Through a painstaking investigation, he has discovered one of the most popular herbal medicines being marketed throughout Nigerian and other parts of the world. The product formerly called Jubi Formula ( now known as Jobelyn ) was launched into the Nigerian market in 1997 and it has become so popular that many pharmaceutical shops are distributing it and many doctors in the hospital are prescribing to their patients. He established Health Forever Product Limited in 2001 and he is the Managing Director. Jobelyn which is the flagship of the company is an immune booster, blood normalizer and energizer. It is useful for those who are sick and those who do not want to be sick.

In the last 15 years, he has been working on providing more scientific evidence to support the efficacy and safety of Jobelyn resulting in publications in some peer-reviewed journals and other unpublished works in Nigeria and in foreign countries like USA, Germany and United Kingdom.
Jobelyn is the only Nigerian medicinal product that has qualified to be marketed in the USA despite the stringent regulatory controls in operation in that country. Currently, Health Forever has applied to the US FDA to register Jobelyn as a botanical drug and if this application is successful, it will establish a world record of being the second botanical drug to be so registered since the programme was established about 50 years ago.
Jobelyn has been featuring in many of the public programmes of AGPMPN within the last 5 years. During this period, scientific presentations on the efficacy and safety of the product had been regularly made and gradually the product has come to be accepted for prescription by many doctors. This has now laid a solid foundation for the eventual integration of natural medicine with the orthodox medicine, a trend that has been on, even in the developed countries like UK and the US.
In December 2008, the Lagos State Branch of the Association of General and Private Medical Practitioners at their annual dinner made a merit award to him for his outstanding research efforts on Jobelyn. This was the first time in the ten yeas’ history of the Association that a non-medical doctor was accorded such a honour.
He is hopeful that by collaborating with the Nigerian Medical Doctors, particularly, the AGPMPN, the integration of orthodox and natural medicine would be firmly established throughout the country and also spread to other parts of the world.
Jobelyn is the process of going through clinical trials at the College of Medicine University of Lagos (CMUL) and the National Hospital, Abuja for the treatment of Anaemia and boosting CD4 cells in people living with HIV/AIDS and it could thus become the first herbal drug to be registered by NAFDAC in Nigeria.
In the last five years, he has been coordinating clinical trials in various institutions including Lagos State University Teaching Hospital for Sickle-Cell Anaemia, Anaemia in pre-operative gynaecological patients. A clinical trial for Breast Cancer using Jobelyn would commence in due course at the same Hospital.
His flagship product, Jobelyn, has got publications in peer-reviewed journals. A summary of the publications is attached.
Olajuwon Okubena is the Managing Director of health Forever Product Limited. Professionally, he is a chartered accountant and management consultant. He discovered Jobelyn which is made from folk medicine formulated from Sorghum bicolor. It is one of the most researched Traditional Medicine in Africa.
