Joke Silva Belongs To Old School
Veteran Nollywood actor, Patrick Doyle has showered praises on his colleague Joke Silva for her care towards her ailing husband, Olu Jacobs.
In the lengthy post shared on Facebook, Patrick said Joke does not share in the flawed philosophy of women telling their husbands that they will give them kind treatment in the twilight of their lives if they are faithful and devoted in their younger days.
The actor claimed that Joke would have still treated her husband with the same measure of love and devotion even if he was a philanderer and wife beater.
According to him, Joke would not take advantage of her husband’s vulnerability to torture him because she belongs to the old school where dignity and honour count and doing the right thing is not contingent upon reciprocity.
