Veteran actress, Joke Silva has some advice for people pressured to imitate others.
In a post on her Instagram page today, she wrote;
“Don’t ever compare yourself to others. You are not a copy but an original. Better your individuality and life because no one will do it for you. Don’t let anyone’s ignorance, hate and negativity stop or change you. Stop comparing yourself to others…aren’t you supposed to be unique? We are all unique. We are all special. We are all wonderfully and fearfully made. Accept who you are. Be you.”
Silva is married to actor Olu Jacobs. The couple founded and operate the Lufodo Group covering film production and distribution assets and the Lufodo Academy of Performing Arts, where she is Director of Studies.
