Olu Jacobs Is Alive — Actors Guild Of Nigeria Clears The Air

The Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) has again dismissed speculations that Olu Jacobs, the veteran actor, has passed away.

On Tuesday, there were rumours on social media platforms that the movie star had died after battling with an undisclosed sickness.

But in a text message sent to TheCable Lifestyle, Abubakar Yakubu, AGN’s national secretary, called on the public to disregard the speculations.

Yakubu said the 79-year-old actor, whom he addressed as “Uncle Olu”, is not dead but “hale and hearty.”

“Please disregard the report. Uncle Olu is alive, hale and hearty. Confirmed,” he wrote.

This is not the first time that the internet would be awash with news of the actor’s rumoured death.

In June last year, the AGN had debunked similar rumours of Jacobs’ death. The guide had also warned “mischief makers” to desist from such “wickedness.”

“The national president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria is in touch with the family. We use this medium to warn mischief makers and enemies of our industry to desist from this wickedness,” it had said.

The ace actor and Joke Silva, his wife, were also in the news in October last year over a claim that they endorsed an unidentified drug for treating diabetes — a claim the couple denied.

“Olu Jacobs and I have NOT endorsed any medication to treat diabetes. If and when we do, the public will be informed in advance on our platforms and it will be audiovisual,” Silva had said.
