Joke Silva, legendary Nollywood actress and wife of Olu Jacobs has stated categorically that she has no apologies or whatsoever for being one of the most expensive producers cum actress in the Nigerian film industry. The respected actress, who began her career way back in the 80s after featuring in the popular TV series such as Mirror in the Sun, Second Chance, Mind Bending and Tight Rope among others, stated recently.

Joke Silva said, the longevity she enjoys as an actress stems from the quality training she had while studying drama at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London. According to her, she believes in training, hence she owes her longevity in the industry to it.

Describing herself as a 'classically trained actor', Joke who is often referred to as the grandmother of Nollywood boasted that given her years of experience as an actress she's one of the most expensive producers around, and that she has no apologies for her action.

“This is because if you want me to play the dual role of producing as well as acting in your film, it means you will part with reasonable amount of money to hire me.”
