Nollywood legend, Olu Jacobs, is billed to turn 80 on the 11th of July 2022.

Wife of the actor, Joke Silva made a post on her Instagram handle to announce the celebration, as she shared an old picture of the young Olu, which she captioned: ”Who has the foggiest idea who this handsome young man is…#80@Glover Birthday loading….@thegloverhall.

Other actors and celebrities have also caught the celebration bug and started pouring encomiums on the legend as part of the celebration.

Friends and well-wishers, on Monday, 4th July 2022 took to the comment section of Silva’s post to add their voices and celebrate the veteran actor.

In November 2021, Joke revealed in an interview that her husband was down with dementia and it had been hard on her and the entire family.

She said, “He is dealing with issues and it has 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 type of disease”.

It affects the brain and affects the person. This is the 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.
