The Legend, the great Uncle Olu Jacobs. @_olujacobs Today is not his birthday but I choose to celebrate him for his impact in my career.
In the early days of my career I spent a lot of time studying his acting style.
It was always an honour to be on set with him. I played his son a couple of times and I learnt so much from him. So accommodating, so nice. He remains one of the greatest actors Africa has produced.”
I miss working with him. Thank you Uncle Olu Jacobs. Many more yrs with good health I wish you. AMEN!”
