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.”

  1. D day u married her, her name authomatically changes, she can stil bear her maiden name but urs supposed 2 b added.(Joke silva Jacobs)

    • 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

    • 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

    • some name change brings bad luck to a woman…. more so the husband no dey complain, the man free his wife and they are getting stronger everyday..I dey your back jare mummy J.. Shine in

    • Mercy nothing wrong wit people’s opinion, what’s ur own business replying me, why not pass.

    • 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?

    • Nd wats ur business if a woman choose to use her husbands name or not was DAT wat d post was about @vera Ngozi vera . the post was abt dem celebration Val’s day so I don’t get were d last name tin is cuming from. Nigerians always want to luk for sumtin to talk abt

    • No need to fight, d husband explained it all ready so stop wishing she bears d name or not. Everybody has there style

    • 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!

    • 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.

  2. Understanding matters in watever we do. Olu jacobs understand his wife,not all men will agree to dis

  3. Is that your family business? They understand themselves n that’s all mind ur own business my dear

  4. Olu Jacobs is one of the people i respect their marriage in nollywood, all these young celebrities that experience marriage crash should go to him for counselling

  5. Some wey change to their husbands name where are they,,,abeg leave them…As long as the husband is ok with it who cares

  6. Changing of Name is not always advisable what if things don’t work will you keep changing your name at every stage of life.

  7. These young actresses of now a days when dey marry immediately they change dia surname how many of them dey carry d surname for long? Divorce wan finish dem, I beg understanding is what matters than flaunting husband surname up and down and not knowing the meaning of marriages. God bless u and yr wife sir

  28. 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.
