Award winning actor Olu Jacobs and wife Joke Silva have been married for about 30 years now.
The actor who turns 74 years old today 11th of July, explains why he let his wife keep her maiden name. While most men would insist their wives change their last names immediately, Mr Jacobs, in this new interview with us explained why he let his wife maintain her maiden name.
Since you got married, your wife has maintained her maiden name. Why has she not adopted your own name?
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
