Veteran Actress Joke Silva has opened up for the first time on her husband, Olu Jacobs’ health who is equally a veteran Nollywood actor.

He is having issues with "dementia," she said.

Joke who discovered at the age 10 that she was adopted when she was a -  9 - month old, disclosed in a recent interview with a media personality, Chude Jideonwo, that 
Olu Jacobs has dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB).

She explained that “it’s been going on for a couple of years.” 

“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 some times and situations recently that I wish I had the old you here so I don’t battle these times on my own but we are grateful for the moment of clarity. I miss the times we work together,” she said.
