Helen Paul, a Nigerian Comedienne, has described the social media backlash trailing Regina Daniels’ alleged marriage to Ned Nwoko, famous billionaire businessman, as ‘hypocrisy of the highest order’.

Attacks on the actress intensified on the internet when the duo made their first public appearance at the Federal University of Petroleum Resources Effurun in Delta, where the 59-year-old politician was conferred an honorary doctorate degree.

Paul, however, took to her Instagram handle to share a video where she advised women trolling the 19-year-old starlet to focus on more important issues in the country.

“Hypocrisy of the highest order, ladies are used to killing and condemning each other.
Do you know what she has gone through? Do you know what pushed her and her family to go into such a marriage? ” Paul said.

She also questioned societal ironies on how age is considered as a parameter for measuring a woman’s preparedness for marriage.

“At what age should a girl get married? Because I don’t know if we have a number to this. We have children that have been given out to men before they even clock ten, that they don’t even know about it,” she wrote.

“Let’s fight that one. We have children that need help, let’s leave the one that has mother already alone. We have children that get married at the age of 18 and they are celebrating 25 years of marriage. And we have ladies that get married at the age of 40 and by the time they clock 41, they are divorced.”

Paul spoke against judgemental remarks women suffer in the society and added that people should focus on more pressing issues rather than judge others from afar.

“There are people who get married at an older age and their husbands are using them as a punching bag. Why are we quick to judge women? The woman did this, the woman did that, What about the men?  Please let us leave issues that are sorted and focus on matters that truly need attention. Nigeria is so big. Plenty problems to be solved o…” Helen stated.
