Veteran Nollywood actor, Oludotun Jacobs, is alive and well, contrary to rumours circulating on social media.

A Nigerian columnist, Betty Irabor, made this known in a message posted on her social media account on Sunday.

“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.
