For as long as many people can remember, Joke Silva and Olu Jacobs have been married and when it comes to longevity, few names can compare to these two.
It was Olu Jacobs’ birthday yesterday and his wife Joke Silva just had to celebrate it, putting out a post where she wished him a happy birthday also calling him the ‘King of my heart’
She captioned her post: “PRAISE THE LORD💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽Happy 77th birthday Sir J. May your days be long in good health and abundance.. The Quintessential Ovorawen. Loads of love king of my heart💝”
Joke Silva and Olu Jacobs have been married since the 80s and they celebrated their 33rd wedding anniversary last year. They are both icons of the screen and also completely drama free.
Joke Silva sat down for an interview with Premium Times last year and there she explained how she and her husband have been able to last this long and come this far. To that she said: “I learnt that marriage is not a destination; it’s a continuous journey, and somehow, it seems like the enemy knows that, so he says, “So, you weathered this storm, let me throw another one, let me see whether you will weather this one.”
“But, I think when you know the person you are married to, when you like the person you are in a relationship with, when you do have respect for each other, you learn. At least for me, for my husband, he was always wanting what was best for me. I had to also learn what was best for him but I finally got it. It differs from person to person and it all depends on what your background is.”
These two are role models to anyone who is getting into marriage and we also want to wish Olu Jacobs a very happy birthday.
Long life and prosperity (LLNP)
