Nigerian Actress Joke Silva Praised For Standing By Husband (Olu Jacobs) Battling Dementia
Veteran Nollywood actress Patrick Doyle has showered encomium on his colleague Joke Silva for standing by her ailing hubby, veteran actor Olu Jacobs.
60-year-old Silva has been receiving admiration and praises since last week for supporting her hubby who turned 80 on Sunday, the 11th of July 2022.
Joke Silva shared pictures of Olu Jacobs from their early times in stage drama to contemporary digital filmmaking to appreciate her hubby.
In his reaction to Joke Silva’s post, Patrick Doyle today took to the social media to appreciate old school women who hold dignity as virtues.
Her is how Mr Doyle praised Joke Silva on Facebook few hours ago:
“All those women hinging Joke Silva’s devotion to her ailing elderly husband on his devotion and care towards her in the early stages of the marriage have simply got it wrong.
“According to them ‘not so faithful and devoted husbands’ should not expect the same kind of treatment in the twilight of their lives, they even go as far as telling such men to expect torment from their wives in old age.
“In their little minds, they have concluded that Joke Silva shares their flawed philosophy. “The Joke that I know would have still treated Uncle Olu with the same measure of love and devotion even if he were a philanderer and wife beater, which thankfully he was not.
“She would never have taken advantage of his vulnerability to torture him because it’s simply not in her DNA to do so.
“She belongs to the old school where dignity and honour count and doing the right thing is not contingent upon reciprocity.
“Salt may mimick sugar in appearance, but there is a difference. Let it be. Let it be known that Joke Silva, the wife of Oludotun Jacobs and mother of Soji, is not a member of the “Egbe’ Kini O’ko’ Ose’ Club”.(Wetin Husband Fit Do Sef). Joke Omoluabi, I say a big thank you on behalf of all men, perfect and flawed.”
Patrick Doyle whose 2nd marriage to Ireti Doyle crashed few years ago has been begging her to return home.
All his efforts to get Ireti Doyle back home have hit the rocks.
