Joke Silvia celebrates her husband Olu Jacobs as he clocks 81 years.
Today, July 11, 2023, is the talented actor Olu Jacobs‘ 81st birthday, and his wife Joke Silva has posted on social media to wish him a happy birthday.
The seasoned actress made sure to remind her followers on Instagram that Olu Jacobs’ actual birthday is today.
She noted in her post that since May, his supporters have been honoring him. “Showboy…Happy birthday dearest as you add plus 1 @_olujacobs. God is good…always,” she said beside a photo of her husband. “Sir J’s fans have been celebrating his birthday since May. Note Today is the official day 11th July.”
Since 2021, the actress has been vocal about her husband’s battle with dementia and has been by his side throughout.
Silva recently opened up on how they have been managing and what it has been like to love him after he was diagnosed with dementia, noting that “sometimes it feels like her husband “is no longer there.” She did, however, make note of what a great father he is to their children.
Jacobs is a renowned actor and a legend in the Nollywood industry despite having left the acting field.
He had been using his acting talents for decades before getting sick, accumulating a remarkable 40 years of expertise. The best role interpreter and word manipulator, he has been called “one of Nollywood’s finest actors.”
In his wife’s comment section, fans and other Nollywood celebrities have congratulated the actor and offered prayers for his recovery.
