“He Has Dementia” – Nollywood Veteran Actress, Joke Silva Speaks About Husband’s Health

Nollywood veteran actress, Joke Silva has spoken publicly for the first time about the health of her husband, Olu Jacobs.

In an interview with Lawyer and media personality, Chude Jideonwo, Joke Silva disclosed that her husband has dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB).

She said, “He is dealing with issues and it is been going on for a couple of years. It is known as dementia with lewy body”. She noted that this is the first time she’s saying it publicly.

She added: “First time I’m saying this publicly… that is what we have been dealing with 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.”

“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.”

Asides from her husband’s health, she spoke about discovering at the age of 10 that she was adopted when she was 9 months old.

She said she discovered on her own that she was adopted when she rummaged through her mother’s document, adding that it wasn’t something her mother was comfortable talking to her about.
