After 30 years of being married to his wife, Joke Silva, veteran Nollywood actor Olu Jacobs has revealed that he’s still very much attracted to her as much as he was during the early years of their relationship.
It’s no doubt that they are one of the admirable and enviable couples in Nollywood and most people would love to know what their secret is. The legend recently, in an interview with The Nation, had this to say about his lovely wife:
“She has not let go. She has not let go her loving and charming self. She still makes her hair, does her make-up, dresses well and still looks beautiful. That is the staying power. I am her last mirror. My wife does not go out without my last comment. After dressing up and looking at herself in the mirror, she still believes in me. She turns to me and asks how she looks every time she has an event and I just look at her and tell her she is smashing.”
The pair met at a stage play audition at the National Theatre, Iganmu, Lagos where, according to Olu Jacobs, he immediately knew she was going to be his wife.
