Men, love and care for your wives, sidechics won’t be there at 75 and 80 – Soso Soberekon writes
Soso Soberekon, a renowned producer and talent manager has reacted to the blissful union of Nollywood living legends, Olu Jacobs and Joke Silva.
This is coming after Jacobs marked his 80th birthday with lots of encomiums from his colleagues, dignitaries and Nigerians at large.
Aside their outstanding contribution to the Nigerian movie industry, Joke Silva and Olu Jacobs are so revered for their deep, love and affection for each other.
Reacting to this, Soberekon advised men to always take care of their wives in order to enjoy a graceful old age just like Olu Jacobs.
“Men, whatever you do, love and care for your wives. Sidechics won’t be there at 75 and 80…A good wife is a blessing, especially at the odd hours of your life,” he wrote.
Recall that the President of Nigeria, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), joined Nollywood and professional actors, who are in Nigeria and those abroad, to celebrate the stage and screen icon, Olu Jacobs, on his 80th birthday which was on Sunday, July 11, 2022.
The President’s birthday message was contained in an announcement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, titled ‘President Buhari joins Nollywood in celebrating Olu Jacobs at 80.’
According to Adesina, “The President felicitates with the Jacobs’ family, including the wife, also a renowned thespian, Joke Silva, and their friends on the auspicious occasion, which calls for thanksgiving for God’s care, guidance and protection.
“President Buhari affirms the influence of the veteran actor on the film industry, setting a standard of professionalism that has attracted global recognition and awards, like the Lifetime Achievement Award conferred on him in 2016 by African Movie Academy Awards.”
Buhari also noted that Olu Jacob’s creative ability to interpret roles, simplify complex issues and bring messages to the understanding of both young and old, levelling cultural, ethnic and religious barriers to become a household name all over the country and beyond.
Largely stereotyped as a father and voice of wisdom in most movies, President Buhari believes Olu Jacobs’ natural tendency to counsel, inspire and instruct easily earned him the roles, while appreciating his foresight in winning many into the profession and guiding them to stardom.
The President, therefore, prayed that the Almighty God will grant him better health, longer life and steadfastness in service to the Arts, God, and humanity.
