Joke Silva, who is Olu Jacobs’ wife, debunked rumours of the death of her husband, Olu Jacobs on Tuesday evening, October 5, 2021.According to news making rounds on the internet, the veteran actor was rumoured to be dead but his wife in an exclusive chat with The PUNCH, said her husband was hale and hearty.

Joke Silva said, “Don’t mind them, they’re just talking rubbish; don’t disturb your head. He is in the living room right now about to have Eba and Ogbono soup. Let them keep deceiving themselves. He is hale and hearty.”

In June last year, the AGN had debunked similar rumours of Jacobs’ death. The guide had also warned “mischief makers” to desist from such “wickedness.”“The national president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria is in touch with the family. We use this medium to warn mischief makers and enemies of our industry to desist from this wickedness,” it had said.The ace actor and Joke Silva, his wife, were also in the news in October last year over a claim that they endorsed an unidentified drug for treating diabetes, a claim the couple denied.“Olu Jacobs and I have NOT endorsed any medication to treat diabetes. If and when we do, the public will be informed in advance on our platforms and it will be audiovisual,” Silva had said.
