Veteran actress, Joke Silva recounts how she was chased by market women in Lagos

Veteran Nollywood actress, Joke Silva recounts how market women chased her some years back in Lagos as she sat for an interview with TheNEWS.

The actress spoke about the most memorable moments in her acting career, one of which was her performances in Owulorojo, a Yoruba TV series in 1993.

Joke Silva who has been in the movie industry for 40 years said she was chased by women at a market in Lagos over her performance in the TV series that shot her to the limelight in 1993.

“The women had been so carried away by my scintillating performance in that TV series that when they saw me they were star-struck and started chasing me, saying they were thrilled by my performance in that movie.

“But, you know, and just going into the market as I used to do. I had forgotten that people had watched Owulorojo and so getting to the market and being chased by all the market women and me running. They were all saying “E ma sa. Mo like ise yin” ( Don’t run, we just like your acting). That was very interesting,” Silva recounted.
