Veteran Nollywood actress, Joke Silva has opened up on the health status of her husband, Olu Jacobs.
She made this revelation In a recent interview with media personality, Chude Jidonwo, weeks after debunking rumour of Jacob’s death.
According to her, her husband is experiencing dementia – an ailment that causes loss of memory, language, problem-solving, and other thinking abilities that are sufficiently extreme to meddle with day to day life.
In her words;
“He is dealing with issues and it is been going on for a couple of years. It is known as dementia with lewy body.
First time I’m saying this publicly… that is what we have been dealing with but the thing is, it is hard on him because he doesn’t understand what is going on and it is hard on us family members as well.
We have gone through it over the past couple of years but we thank God.
We have gone through some times and situations recently that I wish I had the old you here so I don’t battle these times on my own but we are grateful for the moment of clarity. I miss the times we work together.”
