Veteran Nollywood actress, Joke Silva is 55 today and she stays slaying! The multiple award-winning actress studied Drama at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art, London and started her acting career on stage.
One of her earliest roles was in the 1990 English film Mind Bending and in 1993 she appeared in Owulorojo, followed by Violated in 1995. In 1998 she starred opposite Colin Firth and Nia Long in the British-Canadian film The Secret Laughter of Women, where she played Nene. She got married to veteran actor Olu Jacobs in 1985 after meeting him in 1981 at the casting for a Wole Soyinka play.
The gracefully aging mother of two lovely boys never fails to dazzle us with her awesome sense of style and youthful looks. Here are ten times she gave younger ladies a run for their money.
Happy birthday Mrs Ajoke Silva!
