Joke Silvia and Olu Jacobs celebrate Valentine’s Day (Photo)



Veteran actors and couple, Olu Jacobs and Joke Silva marked Valentine’s day together with this adorable selfie taken at an event.

The couple have been married since 1989. And they are blessed with children.

Recently, Olu Jacobs was asked why his wife still bears her maiden name, Jacobs answered: ”

She is her own individual. When I met her, she was an actress known as Joke Silva so why should marrying me now deny her and her audience her name. She is Miss Joke Silva who is Mrs. Joke Jacobs. It is as simple as that. People now begin to say what they like. They have even written that we are separated and all sort of stuffs. When she is working, she is Joke Silva but she is Mrs. Joke Jacobs at home.”

      It’s more like her stage name, no offence the she still ans her husbands name

    • Vera Ngozi Vera

      Feb 15, 2017 at 06:27

      My dear we know but adding it wil not spoil anytin, we hv many actresses that added up their husbands name. But na their lives. Just my opinion

    • Fisher Monisola Omotayo

      Feb 15, 2017 at 06:40

      But whether she changes her name or not. Her marriage is still standing. Compare to those who changed their names and no where to be found in marriage any longer. I beg leave the woman alone and let her be. Changing of name is not what make your marriage meaningful I beg.

      Vera n fisher both of u are right. Is not something to argue about. She suppose to add her husband’s name, But if she decided not to… she is still Mrs joke silva Jacob

    • Fisher Monisola Omotayo

      Feb 15, 2017 at 08:25

      It’s nothing to insult each oda on, it’s high time we grow and stop insulting ourselves and accept our differences. I wonder why we like to insult ourselves on social media. None of us have met with each oda anywhere. So why fighting Mercy Unekwu Akibu and Vera Ngozi Vera?

      Feb 16, 2017 at 12:45

      This Is only traditional belief… Bearing ur husband’s name doesn’t still imply that you are submissive or perfect help meet or respectful to him… It doesn’t even add anything to the happiness or durability of the marriage …. This is sheer hypocrisy, madam!

    • Vera Ngozi Vera

      Feb 16, 2017 at 12:49

      Immaturity is ur problem @ Ace & Victoria bcos in my post I didn’t insult her or anyone just my opinion but ur here wagging ur mouth instead of airing ur opinion in peace. Na u need work.

    Surname is a recognition to a person wen been married or adopted to certain family or the other. While marriage is a product of understanding between both parties, a virtuous woman is a crown to her husband sir olu jacob love is wife nd they ar both happily together till date.

    God ll bless ur union sir. Actually other cultures may have different traditional theory regarding a woman changing or keeping her last name after marriage. Though the holy Bible does not specify it , if you have time read Genesis 2:24 and Ephesians 5:23 . Olu Jacobs trust his wife and the woman is a nice woman too, dat is y they both agreed on dat. Please allow God to rule ur home
