In a statement on Instagram on Monday, 29th August 2022, Joke Silva the wife of Olu Jacobs debunked the rumour of his death.

“Good day everyone, trust all is going well. The Jacobs clan would love to inform you that Pa J Olu Jacobs MFR is alive and doing well, enjoying himself as always in the comfort of his home and loved ones,” she wrote.

“To all those who have decided to ignore our last warning regarding fake news, kindly prepare for legal actions. Signed house of Jacobs.”

Recall that in 2021, the actress refuted the rumors and made it clear that the seasoned actor was in fact enjoying a great supper at the time in an exclusive interview.

“Don’t mind them, they’re just talking rubbish; don’t disturb your head. He is in the living room right now about to have Eba and Ogbono soup. Let them keep deceiving themselves. He is hale and hearty.”

The 80-year-old organized a party for friends, family, and coworkers earlier this year to celebrate his 80th birthday. Due to his health issues, Jacobs has been out of the public eye for some time.

In an exclusive interview, the actress and wife of the movie veteran disclosed that he had dementia.

Actor and film executive Oludotun Baiyewu Jacobs, better known by his stage as Olu Jacobs, is from Nigeria. He has acted in a number of foreign and British television series.
