Ned Nwoko Give Reason Why He Married Regina Daniels
Nigerian businessman tycoon and politician, Ned Nwoko has revealed why he married Nigerian actress and businesswoman, Regina Daniels who is 40 years younger than him.
According to the philanthropist, one of the reasons he married Regina Daniels, apart from love, is that she is from his hometown, Anioma in Delta State.
He stated that his other wives are not from Anioma, so he saw reasons to marry a proper Anioma wife who is beautiful, intelligent, and worthy of his position. He said:
Regina Daniels came at the right time, and as an adult, both of us consenting adults, we got married.
My grandfather, the king of Udumje-Ugboka married as many wives as possible and had countless children.l am from that dynasty as a grandson.
Again like I said earlier, I needed an Anioma wife who will fit into our culture and represent my interest as a proud Anioma son.
Also, in an interview with Sunday Punch, Ned Nwoko detailed how he met his wife, Regina Daniels, and why he chose to marry her.
The billionaire maintained that he loved decent women, and when he married all his wives, they were still virgins. Below is an excerpt from the interview:
You got married to a popular actress, Regina Daniels. Why her?
Why not Regina? When l met her, I didn’t even know who she was because l don’t watch movies, whether British, Nigerian or American. Also, I am not a social media person. Up until that time, I didn’t have Facebook or Instagram accounts So, I didn’t know about Regina until she came to my house with her family on a tour. My house in the village (Aniocha North Local Government Area, Delta State) is a tourist attraction of sorts.
I liked her when I saw her, especially when l found out that she was from that place. I had always wanted to have somebody (a wife) from my side. We were introduced to each other and one thing led to another. That was when I found out she is a very decent girl.
I have always said that I wouldn’t marry anybody who isn’t a virgin and that is very important to me. When I found out that she was a virgin, i reinforced my decision to marry her. I married all my wives as virgins.
The father of many children also spoke about the age disparity between him and the young actress, as he maintained that age is not a barrier.
Age doesnt matter, it is only in one’s mind. As long as somebody is an adult, age is never an issue in anything I do.
