Popular Nollywood actress, Regina Daniels, has finally replied those who have been mocking her for marrying Nigerian politician and businessman, Ned Nwoko who is 61 year -old.
The marriage, which was contracted in April 2019, was widely criticised on social media because of the 38-year age gap between the couple.
Replying her critics a while ago via an Instagram video, Regina Daniels asked them to ‘Shut the f**k up.”
Recall that Regina Daniels had earlier shed more light on why she married the Ned Nwoko as his 6th wife.
She said: “I don’t think I could have married someone of my age because I am quite stubborn, very stubborn, my head is not down but with my husband that is not the case because I respect him a lot,” she noted.
The 22-year-old actress had revealed this in a YouTube video interview conducted by Ifedayo Olarinde, popularly called Daddy Freeze.
During the interview, Daddy Freeze also spoke to Mr. Nwoko about his love story with Regina. He said,
“Some people thought I met her (Regina) through her mother. We met, fell in love and got married within three weeks.” When asked if she was not bothered about the public uproar that trailed her marriage, Regina said,
“The only thing I was worried about when he proposed was how I was going to tell my family and not what the public will say or think. I have learned a lot from him. I call him ‘baby’. I used to cook but my husband has stopped me from entering the kitchen because we have cooks and domestic staff.” Regina Daniels and Ned Nwoko also revealed that they both share common interests including a love for swimming. Mr Nwoko said,
“I taught her how to swim and I learnt under 20 minutes. I have taught over 700 people how to swim in the last four years. It is my passion that’s why I’m building a sports university as you might know.” He also gave a sneak-peek into his private life.
“I don’t drink alcohol, I don’t eat meat or chicken. I am a Muslim, a lot of people don’t know this. I converted when I was schooling in England. I am not religious but I believe in values and ethos that is what should guide everyone’s conscience,”
he revealed. Long before Regina Daniels was romantically linked with Mr. Nwoko, the actress had become an internet sensation due to her obsession with state-of-the-art cars and tattoos.
