This man and the likes of Pete Edochie are the proof that indeed our movie industry has really come a long way. I wasn’t born when he was in his prime I only met him on screen in the twilight of his career but even at that point he was a pure masterclass. Thank you for all the years you gave Pa Jacobs. Your legmovieacy has already attained the legendary status.”
