Recall That After Olu Jacobs vanished for a few years from the filmmaking scene, Joke Silva talked about his health. The actress disclosed to Chude Jideonwo that her husband is battling dementia, a brain ailment caused by degeneration.
He 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 type of disease, it affects the brain and affects the person,…first time i’m saying this publicly….that is what we have been dealing…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….
