Joke Silva and Olu Jacobs are celebrating their 33rd wedding anniversary today.33years and counting…for all we are and all we have achieved.. so far…thank you Lord. It’s all by Your Grace. Happy Wedding anniversary Oludotun Baiyewun King of my Heart
This came in a recent interview where she took time to praise her man. 
I am very lucky to be married to the man that I am married to. Firstly, because he is my friend more than the fact that he is in my industry. That I would marry someone in my industry was not farfetched because I was always around people in my industry and I was not mixing with too many people outside my industry.He is somebody who has incredible passion for his work, believes in his work and he has so much respect for his work. I think that is my gain from being married to him.We met at the National Theatre whilst we were working on the production of Jero’s Metamorphosis.
