Veteran Nollywood actress, Joke Silva, has finally revealed the ailment her husband, veteran Nollywood actor, Olu Jacobs is suffering from.
This is coming few weeks after the couple made a public appearance at an awards event to debunk the rumours of Olu Jacobs’ death.
In a recent interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, the actress revealed that her husband is suffering from dementia – a general term for a medical condition for loss of memory, language, problem-solving and other thinking abilities that are severe enough to interfere with daily life.
“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.”
