On Several Occassions, I Almost Ended My Marriage With Olu Jacobs – Actress Joke Silva Reveals

In a shocking post, Nollywood legendary actress Joke Silva revealed how she almost ended her marriage with Nollywood actor, Olu Jacobs, not once or twice but on several occassions.

This revelation came as a surprise to all those who admired their union, looked up tp them and always thought that her marriage with Olu Jacob had no challenges. 

Just recently, the amazing couple celebrated their 33rd wedding anniversary.

In Joke Silva's words; 

“It happened a lot. I recall a particular incident that happened when we just had our first baby. It turned out to be a learning curve for me. Olu had just come back from set apparently what happened was that he was still in that character that he had just played on set.

So we were just talking and he just started shouting and I was like, “Is it me you are talking to? Do you think I don’t have a father?”

So I packed my clothes with the drawer and I dumped it in my car, carried my baby and I remember our landlady lived at the back of our compound. So, she came out and started shouting, “Joke, where are you going to?’’ I told her I was going to my father’s house.

When I got home the first person I saw was my mum and she said what are you doing here? I began ranting and she said you don’t have a house or a room here, you better pack your bags and go home. My father sort of understood where I was coming from. Funnily, my husband called and asked, “When are you coming home?” That was the first time and I did it a couple of other times."
