Veteran Nollywood actor, Olu Jacobs, has refuted claims that he snatched his wife of many years, Joke Silva, from another man The actor, while speaking with Sun, said he struggled to get his wife and never snatched her from anyone as claimed in some quarters. He said, “That is very wrong. I was invited to come and do a play in Nigeria by the National Theatre. I was living in England at that time. I was to play lead in Wole Soyinka’s The Trials of Brother Jero. We were having the production when the door opened and this lady walked in and said sorry, we are ready.
“When she walked in, ‘I said excuse me, ladies and gentlemen, this is the lady I am going to marry.’ You know bodies can attract and bodies can repel. I saw her and I was attracted. “I am not an impulsive person. I did not just say come. I had to struggle to get her. She was stunned even though she gave me up and down.
