Veteran Nollywood actress Joke Silva has dispelled the rumors circulating about her husband, legendary actor Olu Jacobs, stating that he is very much alive and well.

This is not the first time such rumors have surfaced on social media. Responding to an inquiry via SMS, Joke Silva confirmed, “My husband is alive and doing just fine.”

A close family source, who preferred to remain anonymous, shared with Vanguard that the President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) had spoken with Joke Silva for over an hour, with no mention of any distressing news. “Someone who has lost a husband wouldn’t be so chatty and cheerful on the phone,” the source noted.
