BREAKING: Veteran Actor Olu Jacobs Passes Away At Age 82—Thecloudngr reports that Olu Jacobs has been called home.

Legendary Olu Jacobs passes on at 82

Recall that Jacobs, a multiple award-winning actor, has been battling dementia for some time.

In a recent interview, his wife Joke Silva said her husband’s poor health had changed him significantly, adding that Olu Jacobs is no longer the man she walked down the aisle with 37 years ago.
“It hasn’t been easy. There was a point of acceptance for me that everything happening is reality. It is like the person I married, 80 per cent of the time, is no longer there,” she said.

“But the thing is this: when he was there, he was an incredible father to his children and an amazing husband. He was practically my best friend.”

Silva said despite her husband’s health challenge, she has not stopped loving him.

 “The husband I knew is no longer there for me. This man that is here is someone I still love, but love in a different way,” she said.

 

He was not only one of the greatest actors to ever grace Nollywood, but equally one of the most eloquent, articulate, and learned men you’ll ever come across.
