Actor Olu Jacob stepped out with his wife, Joke Silva, and son for the Afriff Globe awards which took place Saturday night in Lagos.
Veteran Nollywood actor, Olu Jacobs has ended the brouhaha over his reported death as he makes his first public appearance.
Mr Jacobs was spotted at an award event over the weekend in the company of his wife, Joke Silva.
This is coming at the back of reports that made rounds on social media about the actor’s death, some of which suggested otherwise that Olu Jacobs had been bedridden due to a health complication.
Debunking the rumour, the actor’s wife shared photos of him before and after the Afriff Globe Awards that took place on Saturday, November 14th.
There, the veteran actor was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award for his contribution to the industry.
However fans expressed concerns about his current look, as he seems to be less energetic than he was some years ago.
His wife, Joke Silva, recently debunked the rumours of the death of her husband, Olu Jacobs.
In a recent chat with The PUNCH, Joke Silva said her husband was hale and hearty.
She 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.”
