Veteran actress, Joke Silva has publicly spoken about the state of her husband, Olu Jacobs’ health.
Before now, there were rumours that the veteran actor was ill after pictures of him went viral on social media.
The actress has now revealed that Olu Jacobs has dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB).
She explained, “This has been going on for a couple of years. My husband is dealing with issues and it is been going on for a couple of years. It is known as dementia with Lewy Body.
“It is a degenerative disease that affects the brain and it is almost like a Parkinson’s type of disease, it affects the brain and affects the person.”
According to her, it’s been hard on her husband because he doesn’t understand what is going on and also on 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 worked together.”
