A Beautiful Child Is Waiting Out There For You “I Was An Adopted Child”- Joke Silva-jacobs

The beautiful and respected actress, now 56 years old, revealed the secret at the first Annual Conference of Heritage Adoption Support and Advocacy Group in Lagos.

.

Joke’s adopted parents were the late Chief E.A Silva, a reputable lawyer, the then Babajiro of Lagos and his wife late Dr Abimbola Silva, a pioneering female doctor, who died in July 2015.

.

She was living in a foster home of the Red Cross in Yaba, Lagos, with her foster parent, Mrs. Desalu, when the Silvas took her away. she said. “Everybody would be calling me whenever my adopted mum (Dr. Silva)came with cakes and a lot of things during her visit. I went to YWCA Nursery, which was not too far from the Silva’s home in Yaba.

.

I also have memories of moving in with them when they moved to Glover Road in Ikoyi. “I remember reading newspapers to my Dad in our sitting room and pronouncing Brig-General Aguyi Ironsi, the then Nigeria Head Of State, Agolo Iresi! My father could not stop laughing at my hilarious interpretation of the newspaper.

.

“Also I remember making them proud, when performing at St. Saviour School. My parents would be standing and were congratulated by other parent too for my acting skills. My parents were so excited that this child was incredibly talented.

.

“I have memories of going to Holy Child College Lagos because my parents insisted on me going to Holy Child because that is where Julie Coker, Pearce Olusola and Ibidun Allison went and they believed with all my performing talent skills, that is the kind of school I should go to too.

.

“I remembered going out with my cousin and we met a big cousin She introduced me as ‘my cousin’s daughter and this is Dr Silva’s daughter. Then, the older cousin was like, ‘Dr. Silva ke? Se Doctor Silva bimo ni? (meaning does Dr. Silva have a child?). Did Dr Silva ever has a child?’ “I was so confused and when I got home I told my mum, ‘I met this lady that says you never had a child.’ My mum froze and she said, ‘don’t mind them, they are used to rubbish talk.’

Like Her Elder Sister, Niniola, Has Done, Teni Is Gradually Winning The Heart Of Nigerians.


Though they have different styles, they both have an undying passion for music.
.
.
Teni’s song, ‘Fargin,’ which dropped last year, annouced her presence in the music industry. She has released two other songs -‘Pareke’ in December and ‘Wait’ this week.
.
.
In an encounter with GoldMyneTV, she said there was nothing she could do better than music.
.
.
She stated, “When I am sick, I can still stand up and record songs. Music is something I can do without being paid and the easiest thing for me to do.”
.
.
Reacting to insinuations that the lyrics of ‘Fargin’ are too vulgar, she replied, “If you listen to the lyrics well, it has many meanings. The part I said ‘o ni ki bo pata (they asked me to remove my pants)’ talks about rape and the fact that young girls need to understand that being a virgin is not bad. Young girls are now under pressure because the society feels it is uncool to be a virgin.”
.
.
While admitting that Niniola has been instrumental in her life, she stressed that she had also challenged her to prove herself to the world.
.
.
She added, “My sister is my family and nothing can change that. I don’t care about what anyone says. Our happiness comes even before music.”
