In November 2021, Silva for the first time spoke about the health of her husband, Olu Jacobs in a chat with Chude Jideonwo.

“He is dealing with issues and it is been going on for a couple of years. It is known as dementia with lewy body,” she said.

“It is a degenerative disease that affects the brain and it is almost like a Parkinson type of disease, it affects the brain and affects the person.

First time I’m saying this publicly. That is what we have been dealing. But the thing is, it is hard on him because he doesn’t understand what is going on and it is hard on us family members as well,” she added.

In September 2021, social media users raised alarm over the emaciated frame of the actor when he appeared in an Instagram video paying a surprise visit to his wife while she was on set.

There were also rumours that the actor may have given up the ghost. However, Joke Silva silenced the rumours with photos and videos of her husband at her 60th birthday party.

We at Plat4om wish Olu Jacobs a blissful 80th birthday as we thank him for gracing our screens with his immeasurable talent.
