Beautiful veteran actress Joke Silva is one of the most celebrated actresses in the Nollywood industry and we often blow her trumpet not just because of her acting prowess but because of her ability to defy the laws of aging. If vampires weren’t a myth, Mama Jacobs would have passed for a Nigerian Vampire.
Born on September 29, 1961, the 57-year-old actress bagged a Bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Lagos (Unilag). She did not end there but proceeded to Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Arts in London, where she studied drama.
This launched her journey into the movie industry. In the early 1990s, she featured in her first movie, Mind Bending. Her parents never supported her dream of becoming an actress but sooner or later, she had their full support.
Married to veteran Nollywood actor Olu Jacobs, the lovebirds met in 1981 at the National Theatre, Iganmu area of Lagos, during the 21st Independence anniversary. They began their journey together and even in old age, they are inseparable.
At 57, it appears that Joke Silva does not want to be kicked out of the fashion industry. She is ever ready to compete with younger generations as far as stepping on the red carpet is concerned.
In this regard, We bring you five photos of the entertainment icon showing that she is growing backwards:
