Veteran Nollywood actor, Patrick Doyle has spoken highly of Joke Silva, the wife of ailing Nollywood actor, Olu Jacobs.
According to Patrick Doyle, Joke Silva‘s heartwarming nature would never allow her watch her embattled husband, Olu Jacobs struggle without her caring for him.
in a Facebook post on Tuesday, Patrick Doyle stated that Joke Silva would have given Jacobs the same measure of love and devotion, even if Olu was a wife beater.
Patrick Doyle wrote on Facebook;
“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.“
