Not to spoil it. I love Joke Silva very much but she is older than that. This woman was already in her thirties when I was about 15. That makes her at least 15 years older than me. I'm in my 40s. Do the math!

Happy birthday to her sha. Many happy returns.

I agree with the first comment. She's older than 50. Cos even my mum who's almost that age says she grew up knowing Joke in the industry. All the same I wish her a happy life.

There is no way she is just 50. I am 44 and I have always looked at her as being an aunty. Happy Birthday to her anyway!

They shuld be the hottest couple in show biz. i thought she was older than that. Some 9ja ladies act and dress older when they are young, maybe to get respect but it makes people think they are older when they are old.

First annonymous,
Thank you! I thought the same thing. She has to be atleast 60 yrs old or close to 60 yrs. I don't know why alot of Nigerian women and some men lie and decrease their age. Sigh!

Anyway, happy birthday in arrears!

who is 50? She is well above 50 yrs. Age is but a number, i wonder why some of us will always blame God for bringing us into this world earlier. I admire her a lot but i dont agree with the 50yrs thing. Happy birthday Aunty Joke.

Why are most of u kill joys? And u make comments on what u don't know. Did u guys know her when she was acting in second chance? Gues some of you were not born yet then. It was on d set of second chance she met her husband. He is far older than her. I have been deir fan since then. She is an elegant woman and she has no reason to lie abt her age cos a lot of us knew her from then. So get ur facts straight people before blabbing!!!

Joke Silver: she is a one among the Nigerians actress that i really like, just because of her good qualities, interms of dressing, speaking, and smiling. Infacts, she is a good ambassador that the youngers one can looks up to and emulate, especially those who have an ambision to be great in Nigeria movies industry. In conclusion, i speacially congratulate her for her golden age and also wish her happy birthday and meny return with prosperity and more wisdom in Christ Jesus, Amen.

Wow.in the movie violated she was RMD mum.how can that be...

Anonymous said...

i think you made a mistake because she doesn't look like a 50 year old maybe 60 but not 50. Anyways happy birthday to her and many more years to come.

She is just clocking 50, there are two issues that is confusing most people. We have been seeing her for a very long time (tv, stage, newspapers, etc)and she is married to an older man.

She has no reason to lie about her age, and people like us that has known her since the days of "Owuro lojo" where she played a teenager knows her age for real, she is just a bit older than me.

Her looks has nothing to do with her age, genes plays a role in how we look and that's why you confuse a 48 year old woman for 35 and a 35 year old may look older.

Some traumatic experiences also affect our look. I noticed she 'aged' when she lost her child years ago and she never regained that youthfulness again.

HBD Joke, may your mission on earth be accomplished.

sleekreek said...

50 bawo??i dont think so....i thought she was older than that,,,,i though she was in her 60s or almost 60,,,,she doesnt look 50 at all,,she looks older,,,abeg Linda,,,confirm this ur info.....anywayz,,,happy birthday ma...

Anonymous said...

should it matter how old she is?
On what ground do you think she could even bout her age?

i expected people to just wish her HBD and not the "age probing" haba

HBD Ma

Tee said...

Thanks Anon 4:17 and Anon 7:53. She started out very early and Yes, Olu Jacobs is much older than she is. If only 'the accusers' had read some of her interviews in some of the Nigerian dailies over the years then they wouldnt have made such baseless accusations! Happy birthday ojare Aunt Joke.

Tee said...

Many thanks Anon Sept 23 9:53. I hope your explanation shames 'our accuser friends'. Its saddening...this temptation to be negative without any fact whatsoever to back one up.

Anonymous said...

50? It sounds a bit...untrue. My mother is older than that and Joke definitely looks...well, like she was a senior girl when my mum went to secondary school. Anyway, I can't tell her how old she is. I don't have her birth certificate, so HBD Joke - whatever your age is.

Anonymous said...

I will say she's at least 60, and Olu is in his 70s. Abi is he 50 again? Naija people always lying about their age.

Nonetheless, I admire this couple a lot. Happy birthday, beautiful.

Anonymous said...

impossible! how can she be younger than RMD? Nah, this gist is inaccurate. Linda, please get ur facts right.

These so called young celebrities should learn from these older couples who have been able to manage their home and their careers well over the years. My best wishes to her and her family.

The younger generation of artists should learn from these legacies who have been able to secure and maintain good homes and manage their career alongside. With these lessons learnt, they will be better role models for the coming generation.

I presume Ma'am Joke is much older than 50 though. My love to Joke & Olu Jacobs!
