Olu Jacob and Joke Silva are one of the oldest couples in Nollywood industry. The gorgeous couple walked down the aisle in 1981 and decades later their marriage is waxing strong.

“In the very early years of Nollywood,” she says, “there was a film I featured in titled The Golden Cage. My love interest in that film was Yomi Layinka. We have a kissing scene in that movie and my husband was the associate director on the film.”

Olu Jacobs may have been the associate director of that movie and well aware of the scene, but he wasn’t too comfortable with it.
