Actress Joke Silva’s Younger Sister Bisi Succumbs To Cancer Complications

Bisi Silva, the founder and Artistic Director of the Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA) in Lagos died on Tuesday after a protracted battle with cancer.

She died at 3:45 p.m in Lagos. She was Veteran actress Joke Silva’s younger sister.

She opened CCA in 2007 and later Asiko International Art School in Lagos. After her first degree in Foreign Languages in Paris, she earned her two-year MA in Visual Arts(Curating and Commissioning of contemporary Art) at the Royal College of Art in London.

When she moved over to Nigeria, she blossomed in her field, earning the respect of not only major artists but wealthy art collectors too.

Bisi curated numerous important exhibitions in Nigeria, Africa and Europe. These exhibitions included ”Democrazy”, Playing with Chance: El Anatsui” and ”J.D. Okhai Ojeikere: Moments of Beauty.” She was in her fifties.

In October 2015, she presented a fascinating coffee table book, J.D. OKHAI OJEIKERE, in Lagos. The book is the most comprehensive archive of powerful photographs of over six decades of Ojeikere.

  1. My condolences to the Silvas. May she rest in the bossom of the Lord.

  2. Is there no cure yet for this deadly sickness? RIP to the dead. What a resemblance. @Blessed Princess

    1. There is but they are giving it only to powerful people in the world......wicked world we live in

    2. Powerful people? I guess Steve Jobs was not powerful enough right? Bollocks!

      They don’t want to find a cure because pharmaceutical companies will go bankrupt.

    3. Mtcheww which Steve Jobs? I dey talk people with power to control the world, not people with power to control apple.
      The queen of England has had cancer twice and she was cured.

    4. Approko I wish I can meet you one on one so you can yarn me more. Chai! I too like gist.

    5. Lol, the queen has which power? She isn't even among the first 50 powerful people in d world.

    6. Aproko, ordinary people still defeat cancer, bracket had blood cancer ,he was cured, if detected early, you don't need to be powerful to get treatment.

    7. Blackberry, you're getting it wrong. if cancer is detected early YES there's a probability of treatment before it spreads. We're talking about the main cure to end cancer kpatakpata even if it's in the last stage

      Anon 15:11, if the queen of England is not in your worlds powerful list, I wonder who you know about POWERFUL......don't allow your phone be smarter than you

    8. Just shows how ignorant Aproko is. Thanks Anon 15:11 for schooling her.

    9. Aproko Queen; Steve Jobs with the power of information and technology at his finger tips was not powerful abi powerful enough? A man that was used for trial drugs by the most powerful pharmaceutical companies in the world?
      It's the queen of England with her figure head status that is "that" Powerful?
      What do you know about world super powers?
