Joke Silva Biography, Age, Income, Net Worth, and Career (2022)

Joke Silva, a Nollywood actress, recently talked up about the marital difficulties she and her husband, Olu Jacobs, have been through as he battles dementia.

Silva revealed how the sickness has damaged their marriage in a poignant conversation with media personality and actress Nancy Isime.

Silva praised her husband as an incredible father and husband who always fulfilled his commitments.

She recalled their early years together, underlining that Jacobs was not just her greatest friend, but also her entire life in their marriage. However, as his illness progressed, it caused substantial changes in their relationship.

Silva expressed, “It has not been easy… There was a point of acceptance for me that everything happening is reality and it is like the person I married, 80 percent of the time is no longer there.”

“But the thing is this when he was there, he was an incredible father to his children and an amazing husband, he was practically my best friend.”

Despite the challenges posed by Jacobs’ dementia, Silva continues to hold deep affection for him.

She acknowledged that the love and affection they once shared are no longer as present but emphasized her enduring love for him, saying, “The husband I knew is no more and there for me, but this man that is here is someone I still love.”

Having been married for 37 years, with a total of 42 years knowing each other, including five years of dating before tying the knot, Silva acknowledged the initial difficulties they faced as they navigated through the early stages of their marriage.

She ultimately came to accept the reality of their situation and now sees herself as caring for her father rather than in a conventional husband-wife relationship.
