Yesterday – Thursday, July 11, 2019 – veteran actor Olu Jacobs turned 77.

The baritone-voiced actor who started acting among British stars while he lived in the United Kingdom before he returned to Nigeria in the ’80s was celebrated by his colleagues in the make-believe industry.

The official Instagram page of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) poured these encomiums on the super star actor:

“Happy birthday to the legendary @_olujacobs. A veteran Nollywood distinct actor, one of the pioneers of film making in Nigeria. On behalf of the Guild, we wish you a happy 77th birthday. And we pray for long life, good health, happiness and prosperity to you and your household in Jesus name. Amen. Let's celebrate the legend.”

Top Nigerian movie stars followed suit to celebrate the man who has devoted all his life to entertaining the world.

First on the list was his beloved wife, Joke Silva, equally a movie legend. Hear her: “Praise the Lord!  Happy birthday Sir J. May your days be long in good health and abundance. The Quintisential Ovorawen. Loads of love king of my heart.”

Angelic actress Rita Dominic had this to say: “Happy birthday dearest Uncle Olu. You are a true definition of a living legend! May God continue to bless you with long life. We love you today and always. @_olujacobs #king”.

As the greetings keep pouring in, we at Maggie’s Blog wish the master role interpreter the very best in the rest of his days, months and years on earth.
