Joke Silva, a veteran Nollywood actress, speaks out about the health of her husband, Olu Jacobs, just weeks after debunking rumors of his death.
This comes just days after Olu Jacobs attended an award ceremony amid rumors of his death.
In a recent interview with media personality Chude Jidonwo, the veteran actress revealed that her husband has dementia – a medical condition characterized by loss of memory, language, problem-solving, and other thinking abilities severe enough to interfere with daily life.

“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 stated.
On the full interview on Chude’s Youtube channel, she added, “First time I’m saying this publicly… that is what we have been dealing with 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. We have gone through it over the past couple of years but we thank God.
We have gone through some times and situations recently that I wish I had the old you here so I don’t battle these times on my own but we are grateful for the moment of clarity. I miss the times we work together.”
