“Dear men, before you start admiring Joke Silva for being a good wife to her husband even in bad health and start measuring your wife with her.
The man you see here must have been a good husband and father in their youthful time to get such dedication and love from his wife today.
Ask these questions .
Did sir Olu Jacob leave her to be with a mistress?
Did he take care of her in their youthful age or not?
Was she treated like a queen?
Maybe, she didn’t even have the experience of fighting or dealing with any things called “sidechick”.
Did Olu Jacob marry two wives?
Before you start the comparison, nwoke uche ghi dikwa ya oooo.
Na Husband wey take care of wife them dey take care of when them old.”

Speaking in a recent interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, the award-winning thespian disclosed that Olu Jacobs has dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB).
According to the mom-of-two, it’s been going on for a couple of years but this is the first time she’s speaking about it publicly. (Read here)
In her words:
“He is dealing with issues and it is been going on for a couple of years. It is known as dementia with lewy body.
“It is a degenerative disease that affects the brain and it is almost like a Parkinson type of disease, it affects the brain and affects the person.
“First time I’m saying this publicly… that is what we have been dealing…but the thing is, it is hard on him because he doesn’t understand what is going on and it is hard on us family members as well.
“We have gone through it over the past couple of years but we thank God.”

“We have gone through some times and situations recently that I wish I had the old you here so I don’t battle these times on my own but we are grateful for the moment of clarity. I miss the times we work together.”
@Bukola: I was about to even say that this man is lucky that he has his wife by his side in his trying times. And you know why she is staying by his side and she is so happy? Because he stayed by her side and was not going up and down impregnating every ashewo or bad mouthing women like some of these LONELY MISERABLE FOOLISH MISOGYNISTIC guys.
Even if, God forbid, he dies today, he will pass away happy on his sick bed with his wife and kids by his side and satisfied he lived a good life. He won’t die alone and miserable unlike some of you frustrated wannabe “alpha males”.
@Anonymous: This woman really knows what love is about. I see her smiles but I see the pains behind too. I very much doubt that we have, in our generation, many women and men with such heart. May God bless her and heal her husband too.
@Martha: Why won’t she? her husband was loyal to the end. No nonsense. No drama, at least if he had sidechics he was respectful enough for us to not hear. The man is reaping what he has sown, the same way other men that cheat on their wives and abandon them for sidechics reap what they sow. Some men are so stupid, they lack foresight and realize it way too late in life when they are old, alone and bitter and no one wants to touch them without getting money. At least women have people around them as they age because of that nurturing nature they showed when young.
