With Joke Silva (Jacobs) today as she combined having her hair braided and working on the desk top. Joke Silva (in red), one of Nigeria's finest actresses of all time, learnt her craft in drama school while in the United Kingdom . She has worked in radio, tv and drama for many years.
She was part of the Cast (and also the Producer) of the production of Eve Enslar's Vagina Monologues in Lagos about 3 weeks ago.
The drama is scheduled to be staged again on Friday and Saturday, April 14 & 15 at the Muson Centre, Lagos.
Joke acted alongside Nia Long (Big Momma's House) and Colin Firth (Bridget Jones' Diary- The Edge of Reason) in the 1999 movie "The Secret Laughter of Women". She is married to the Nigerian, Olu Jacobs who was in the movie made out of the international best seller, The Dogs of War, and Roman Polanski's Pirates. I'm the star-struck one with the tie. Posted by Picasa
