BREAKING: Olu Jacob Is well And Alive — Betty Irabor Confirms


Media Personality, Betty Irabor, has confirmed that the veteran nollywood actor, Olu Jacobs is well and alive.

“Olu Jacob is well and alive.. please ignore all rumours of his passing. He is alive please,” she wrote.

The rumours of Jacobs’ death had earlier spread online without official confirmation.

In June 2020, there was a similar report that trended on the then Twitter (now X) and Facebook.

The then spokesperson of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Monalisa Chinda-Coker, later debunked the news.

In August 2022, there was also rumour concerning the actor’s death.

His wife, Joke, later debunked the news and threatened legal action against those spreading the information.

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.
