Actress Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde commented, “Happy birthday to a legend, a father to the industry, an outstanding actor, an incredible soul.”

Actress and television host, Osas Ighodaro also commented: “Happy Birthday, legend! God bless you immensely.

Also, recall that concerns had trailed the actor’s long break from the big screen until November 2021 when his wife publicly revealed that he had been battling Dementia with Lewy Body.

He is dealing with issues and it has been going on for a couple of years. It is known as dementia with Lewy Body. It is a degenerative disease that affects the brain and it is almost like a Parkinson’s type of disease, it affects the brain so you don’t see the shaking. It affects the person.

“It’s been hard on him because he doesn’t understand what is going on and also on family members as well. We have gone through it over the past couple of years and we thank God.

“We have gone through some times and situations recently that I wish I had the old you here so I don’t battle these times on my own but we are grateful for the moment of clarity. I miss the times we worked together,” Silva had said.
