Joke Jacobs (nee Silver) is such a legend in film and stage play. Even though she was acting long before, most of us of a certain generation remember her clearly from the early movie: Generations. Wow, that was something. Directed by the late Amaka Igwe, the leading actor was RMD (Richard Mofe Damijo) and the lead actress was Ego Boyo. But Joke Jacobs gave her character a larger than life presence. It was first-class acting at it’s best.
Over the years this legendary actress has not dropped her standards an inch; instead she continues to inspire and challenge even as she mentors those coming behind her. She is ageless and timeless and a real inspiration to all.
She is an extraordinary woman and it is our privilege to wish her HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
