How I Wooed Joke Silva, Decided To Marry Her On First Sight - Olu Jacobs


OLU JACOBS AND JOKE SILVA
Chief Olu Jacobs, the veteran Nollywood superstar has narrated how he wooed his wife, Joke Silva-Jacobs, who is also an actress, a superstar too.

Olu Jacobs made the revelation in an interview with the Sun Newspaper. He said he wooed Joke and and convinced she was her wife, on the first day they met each other.

The Actor, however, debunked the claim that he snatched the actress from a rival.

Your union is a testament to how celebrities should handle their marriage. We have seen a lot of stories about breakups and it is saddening. Is it that actors and actresses can’t make good homes?

(Laughter) That is very wrong. I was invited to come and do a play in Nigeria by the National Theatre. I was living in England at that time. I was to play lead in Wole Soyinka’s The Trials of Brother Jero.  We were having the production when the door opened and this lady walked in and said sorry, we are ready. When she walked in I said excuse me ladies and gentlemen, this is the lady I am going to marry. You know bodies can attract and bodies can repel. I saw her and I was attracted. I am not an impulsive person. I did not just say come. I had to struggle to get her. She was stunned even though she gave me up and down. (laughter).

Your union is a testament to how celebrities should handle their marriage. We have seen a lot of stories about breakups and it is saddening. Is it that actors and actresses can’t make good homes?

No, quite frankly, let me tell you what. I don’t encourage people to think that way. It is virtually in all professions, in all offices whereever you have women and men together. Even if you don’t hear it, we have a lot of divorces in all other sectors. For the fact that you don’t hear it in other sectors like banking or in the oil sector, as oily as it is, does not mean it is not happening. It is in all offices where we have men and women.
