The Legend, the great Uncle Olu Jacobs. @_olujacobs
Today is not his birthday but I choose to celebrate him for his impact in my career.
In the early days of my career I spent a lot of time studying his acting style.
It was always an honour to be on set with him.
I played his son a couple of times and I learnt so much from him.
So accommodating, so nice.
He remains one of the greatest actors Africa has produced.
I miss working with him.
Thank you Uncle Olu Jacobs.
Many more yrs with good health I wish you.
