Popular actress Patience Ozokwor says she does not believe anyone can ever take the place of veteran actor Olu Jacobs in the movie industry.

Ozokwor, 63, stated this, Sunday, at the 80th birthday celebration of Jacobs held at the Glover Memorial Hall in Lagos.

She praised the celebrant – during a speech in his honor – for his acting prowess and added that she misses him on set as well as his versatility to play any role.

“I’m missing him on set, he can play an Igbo king, he can play a Yoruba king, in fact, I don’t think anybody can replace him,” Ozokwor said.

Other Nollywood stars who attended the event include Hilda Dokubo, Ali Baba, Taiwo Ajayi Lycett, Victor Osuagwu, Ego Boyo, Ireti Doyle, Ini Edo, Kunle Afolayan and Ngozi Nwosu.

Jacob’s wife, Joke Silva, had, during an interview with Chude Jideowo late 2021, revealed her husband has dementia and that it had been hard on her and the entire family.
