Veteran Nollywood Actress, Joke Silva, recently sat down with journalist Chudeity and talked about her husband Olu Jacobs’ health condition.
While Speaking on Chudeity IG page on Saturday, the icon revealed that the widely-loved actor is dealing with some issues that affect his everyday activities.
“He’s dealing with issues and it’s been going on for a couple of years. It’s known as dementia with lewy body,” she told Chudeity.
A google search on dementia shows that it is the impaired ability to remember, think, or make decisions that interferes with doing everyday activities.
According to Webmd, Lewy bodies are clumps of protein that can form in the brain. When they build up, they can cause problems with the way your brain works, including your memory, movement, thinking skills, mood, and behavior.
A lot of Nigerians felt sorry for the family as some recalled the impact of the actor on their childhood.
Below are some of the messages from concerned fans:
“So pretty…Dementia is not easy …people in diaspora will know…God bless them.”
“Love and Light Mama you sure don’t look like what you’re going through. The Lord is your strength.”
“People suffering from dementia can be very difficult to deal with and it can be draining. May God give you the strength and patience you need ma.”
