This life nawao – Video from Olu Jacob’s 80th birthday stirs emotions as son holds his hands to cut cake (Video)

A video of Olu Jacob‘s son and his wife Joke Silva assisting the actor and helping him cut his cake on his birthday has stirred emotions.

The veteran Nollywood actor clocked a new age and his family thought it wise to organise a party for him with a huge 80th birthday cake.

In the beginning of the video which was shared by @abidexx_bbOlu Jacobs was seen with his wife, Joke Silva, standing side by side before she was asked to excuse the actor so a personal photo could be taken of him.

While standing close to his cake, his son held his hands and tried to direct him properly on how to cut the cake.

The video has sparked reactions on social media with many netizens expressing their concern over the actor’s health, as he appeared frail in the video.
