Various celebrities also celebrated the actor on their social media accounts, leading many Nigerians to recount their memories from watching his movies and appreciating him.

Pete Edochie Edochie posted, “When I started my acting career in 2005, one of my biggest wishes was to be on set with the Legendary Uncle Olu Jacobs. I finally got that opportunity many times and I learnt so much from him. And I’ll forever be grateful.

A very happy 80th birthday to you Sir. May God be with you always. We love you.”

We are very lucky to still have him around.”
