Joke Silva, a veteran Nollywood actress, has described the marital hardships she and her husband, Olu Jacobs, have had as he battles dementia.

In an interview with media personality and actress Nancy Isime, Silva spoke candidly about the illness’s influence on their marriage.

Silva hailed her husband as a wonderful husband and father who always did his job.

She focused on their early years together, emphasizing that Jacobs was not just her best friend but her entire life before they married, but their relationship has suffered significant changes as a result of his illness.

She acknowledged the difficulties they encountered throughout the early years of their marriage. They have been married for 37 years and have known each other for 42 years, including five years of courting before to marriage.

In the end, she accepted their arrangement and now sees herself as caring for her father rather than in a traditional husband-wife relationship.

She said;

“It has not been easy… There was a point of acceptance for me that everything happening is reality and it is like the person I married, 80 percent of the time is no longer there.

“But the thing is this when he was there, he was an incredible father to his children and an amazing husband, he was practically my best friend.
