Since news of her alleged marriage to Ned Nwoko, billionaire businessman and politician, surfaced online, Regina Daniels, Nigerian actress and film producer, has become the centre of attraction on social media.
Here’s what you should know about the Nollywood starlet.
She’s still a teenager (18)
Although controversies surrounding the age of the curvy actress suggests otherwise, Regina Daniels was born on October 10, 2000, in Delta state.
Daniels is the fifth child of Rita Daniels, Nollywood actress. There is also little information about the starlet’s father. Daniels has three elder brothers and two sisters.
‘Miracle Child’ brought her to the limelight
A Nollywood movie released in 2010 featuring popular actresses like Ini Edo, Chika Ike and Mercy Johnson launched Regina Daniels into the spotlight of Nigeria’s film industry.
Set in a rustic Igbo community, Daniels starred as the ‘Miracle Child’ who delivered villagers from demonic influences in the film.
Prior to this blockbuster, Regina debuted as a child actress in ‘Marriage of Sorrows’ where she was paid N10,000 for her movie role. Daniels would later translate into a producer with ‘The Jericho’ and ‘Twins Apart’.
She’s an undergraduate
Regina Daniels is also involved in school work, as she currently studies Mass Communication at Igbinedion University, Benin. Daniels shared her matriculation pictures in 2017 to celebrate her admission.
Lady of luxury lifestyle on social media
From sexy swim gears to exotic cars and jewellery, Daniels’ style depicts her taste for luxury lifestyle—which accounts for most controversies surrounding the actress.
The teenage star stirred social media uproar when she shared pictures of a beautiful duplex she bought for her mother in late March this year.
More recently, she acquired a wristwatch which according to her is valued at N3.3 million. She also took her game a notch higher with pictures of her brand new Mercedes Benz G Wagon.
Her short-term political appointment
Daniels also hinted her interest in politics when she was appointed the campaign youth coordinator for Atiku Abubakar at the last general election.

I'm Regina Daniels. Proud to be 100% Atikulated with Atiku Abubakar who is in the race to become Nigeria's next President. I accept my appointment as Youth Campaign Coordinator For Nollywood with humility and youthful zeal. Atiku is a youth-friendly leader who has assured that every 4 out of 10 of his cabinet will be a youth. The drift is brazen. The nation is at crossroads. The land bleeds from hunger and inertia. It's time to steer the ship away from caput. From Bama to Bori, Aba to Abuja, kaura Namode to Kaduna, the sky is gloomy. Time for Nigerian Youths to join me and vote Atiku/Obi 2019 to protect our future.
Her political appointment was short-lived when Atiku, the presidential candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), lost to President Muhammadu Buhari.
