Olu Jacobs is alive – Publisher


Celebrity publisher, Betty Irabor, has refuted a rumour being circulated that veteran actor, Olu Jacobs, is dead.

Some had, as was done in the past, circulated the news of his passage online, even without any information or confirmation by his family

“Olu Jacob is well and alive… Please, ignore all rumours of his passing. He is alive please,” she wrote.

The rumours of Jacobs’ death had earlier spread online without official confirmation.

This is not the first time such news about the veteran actor will trend online.

In June 2020, there was a similar report that trended on the then Twitter (now X) and Facebook.

The then spokesperson of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Monalisa Chinda-Coker, later debunked the news.

In August 2022, there was also rumour concerning the actor’s death.

His wife, Joke, later debunked the news and threatened legal action against those spreading the information.
