Joke Silva, a veteran actress, has spoken out about the condition of her husband, Olu Jacobs.
After photographs of the legendary actor went popular on social media, there were reports that he was ill.
Olu Jacobs has dementia with Lewy bodies, according to the actress in an interview with Chude Jideonwo (DLB).
“This has been going on for a few of years,” she says. My husband has been struggling with troubles for a couple of years. It’s referred to as Lewy Body Dementia.
“It’s a degenerative disease that affects the brain, and it’s similar to Parkinson’s disease in that it affects both the brain and the person.”
She said it’s been difficult on her spouse, who doesn’t comprehend what’s going on, as well as family members.
“We’ve been through a lot in the last few years, but we’re grateful to God.”
“We’ve lately gone through some periods and situations when I wish I had the old you here so I didn’t have to deal with it alone, but we’re happy for the clarity.” I miss the times when we collaborated.”
