The wedding between Nollywood teenage star actress, Regina Daniels and billionaire politician, Ned Nwoko penultimate Sunday in Asaba, Delta State was simply a display of glitz, glamour and affluence.
Ned Nwoko, an international lawyer and former member of the House of Representatives from Idumuje-Ugboko in Aniocha North Local Government Area of Delta State, stormed Asaba town in a glittering black Rolls Royce, amongst many other exotic cars for the ceremony.
Among those who accompanied Ned to the eventful ceremony were some of his expatriate friends, selected close relations and a few palace chiefs including the Iyase of the Idumuje, Ugboko, Chief Chris Ogwu.
Regina‘s mother, Rita Daniel, her uncle who stood in for her biological father as well as all her siblings were present to give their blessings to the marriage. Ned had wanted a quiet marriage ceremony but was blown out of proportion due to his celebrity status.
“Ordinarily Prince Nwoko had wanted a lowkey wedding but as soon as he and his entourage landed Asaba, some of his supporters sighted him and stormed the wedding venue thereby making it an elaborate ceremony,” a source who was at the ceremony informed National WAVES.
For Ned and Regina, their heartfelt dreams have finally come true. It all started weeks back when the 19-year-old actress bought a house, an eye-popping palatial mansion located on Okpanam road behind a popular hotel, Swiss Spirit Hotel, in Asaba, the Delta State capital for her mum, Rita Daniels. She also flaunted a wristwatch which according to her cost N3.3million.
Regina took to her Instagram page on Wednesday, March 20, 2019, and shared a photo of the new beautiful duplex she bought for her mother.
There was also a recent media report that Regina Daniels acquired a posh Ferrari just days after her marriage to Prince Nwoko. However, a source very close to Regina revealed that the car was actually not a new acquisition; rather it was one of the exotic cars in Nwoko’s fleet.
“Regina is now married to Ned and has full access to all Ned’s exotic cars. All she needs to do from now is just stroll down the garage, choose whichever car of her fancy and go for a ride. It is as simple as that,” said our source.
Regina came into limelight as a seven-year-old, featuring in a slew of Nollywood movies. Her mother, Rita, is also an actress. Regina is a mass communication student of the Igbinedion University, Benin.
Ned and Regina’s marriage has generated widespread attention and mixed feelings. Ned is 58 years old while Regina is 19.
Some critics have raised eyebrows over the love tango based on the 39-year age gap. They view the engagement as incongruous and totally strange.
Others have, however, given thumbs-up for the love-struck duo, celebrating the affair as permissible since the two are consenting adults entitled to privacy and preference.
