Popular Veteran Nollywood actress Joke Silva has reacted to rumours that her husband, actor Olu Jacobs is dead.
She told the Punch that her husband was relishing a nice meal at the time the paper called her to ascertain if the rumours of her husband’s death was true.
“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,” she told the paper.
The news of the actors’ likely passing began trending on Twitter on Tuesday evening. The source of the news was unknown, making fans doubt its authenticity.
What worried the fans, however, was that Jacobs has been away from limelight for a few years now, with reports alleging he was fighting an unnamed illness.
But, a popular actress, Uche Jombo, shared a video of the 79-year-old actor at a Lancelot Imasuen movie set in Lagos recently.
