Nollywood legend, Joke Silva, clocked 60 years, September 29. The actress who is married to Nollywood veteran, Sir Olu Jacobs is excited about her new age and has taken to social media to share beautiful photos of her graceful figure.
Not many knew that she remarried and renewed her marital vows with her husband, Olu Jacobs when she clocked 50 years old.
Joke Silva, who made headlines when she revealed a few years ago that she was adopted by her late parents, reminisced on her remarriage, the loss of her loved ones, including her child and how she had survived the last five years.
The talented actress is also celebrating her 40th year on stage .
She wrote, “Ten years ago today on my 50th birthday we had our renewal of vows in Freedom Park on Lagos Island. Pastor Tony Rapu remarried us.
Sir J and I. Six pastors were also part of the team that officiated. In the congregation was my Mum Dr (Mrs) Abimbola Silva.
She had taken a wine and white Ankara as aso ebi for the family. My aunties Mrs Gbemi Rosiji, Aunty Olga Miller, Aunty Fracesca Emmanuel were all there. All of them in their 80s…all of them now on the otherside of eternity.
My almost twin sister Bisi was also there. She too is on the otherside of eternity.
With my Dad and my late daughter. I believe that’s what happens the older we get…the more milestones we hit. Memories of those we have loved and lost.
However being on this side of eternity is soo good too. Challenging …definitely especially the last 5years. Wawoo.
A massive thank you to my sons Soji @mrjacobs_jnr and Gbenga @oj_poetry , my daughter Blessing @_blessing_douglas and grandaughter Dayo @atarahbaby for making these years bearable. Also my staff…Paulina,Micheal,John.
Without this team these last 5years would have been impossible. Now the big 60 is here and I thank God for His oh so massive mercies. Yes that’s it. Gratitude for health,for love of family and friends. Thank you Lord.
