A Nollywood actress, Regina Daniels is now customarily married to a businessman and politician, Ned Nwoko.
Ned Nwoko is a Muslim and was a member of the Nigerian House of Representatives between 1999 and 2003.
Hon. Ned Nwoko is 59 years old. His newest wife, Regina is 18 years old. When the news of the wedding broke out on Friday, it went viral on the Internet.
The couple had an introduction ceremony last weekend in Asaba, the Delta State capital where Regina Daniels family home is.
Efforts were made to find out why he decided marrying Regina after four marriages, the billionaire politician, who spoke through his media handlers refused any comment but said he is first, a Muslim, who can marry as many wives as he wills.
Also, he cited his royal background as another factor for his harem of women. “Allamdulilai, Hon. Ned Nwoko is of royal blood and he is entitled to as many wives as he desires. He is no kid and knows what is best for him. Don’t forget that he is a devout Muslim and he is entitled to more than a wife. He would not want to comment on Regina Daniels currently,” one of his aides said.
Recall that Ned Nwoko married one Miss Nwakaego Ukachukwu, his Special Adviser on Legal Matters and also gifted her a N20 million BMW car as well as a posh mansion in a high-brow area in Abuja.
Married to five wives, Nwoko has been the one splashing cash and spoiling Regina Daniels silly with expensive gifts. He bought her the expensive cars including a house in GRA Asaba which the actress brandished on social media some weeks ago as a gift to her mother, Rita Daniels.
Don’t forget little Regina flaunted a N3.3m Rolex wristwatch, some days after her gift to her mum. Obviously, Regina has been dating the billionaire for at least over a year or close to two. When asked if Ned Nwoko could be accused of cradle-snatching, sources close to him hinted that Nwoko didn’t touch her until she was of age.
“He didn’t touch her when she was younger and must have decided to be very intimate with her when she clocked 18 in October of 2018. Hence the delayed marriage to make her more mature. You can’t accuse Hon. Nwoko of cradle-snatching when some northern big shots married 13-year-olds. The main thing is that the couple love each other,” he said.
It was also gathered that Mr. Nwoko sometimes flies the actress to Abuja on his private jet to one of his cozy homes where he also enjoys quiet times with her.
It was revealed that the wedding ceremony, which held last weekend was a private affair as the few family members invited were instructed not photographs. There wasn’t much glitz as many complied with the wish of the couple not to have photographs.
Regina came into limelight as a seven-year-old, featuring in a slew of Nollywood movies. Her mother, Rita Daniels, is also an actress. Currently, a Mass Communication student of the Igbinedion University, Benin, she became a social media sensation recently when she started flaunting luxury gifts on her Instagram page. From flying private jets to parts of the world to flaunting luxury cars, she became a newsmaker which acting never afforded her.
