Regina Daniels & Ned Nwoko’s 7th wife rumor
By Chinelo Nwangene
Nollywood actress, Regina Daniels, has swiftly moved to quash viral reports that her billionaire husband, Prince Chinedu Munir Nwoko, was making moves to take another wife.
“The news about Sara being my husband’s wife is completely false. She is my friend, who visits!” The mother of one said via her instastory.
Speculation had been rife since Monday that the businessman and philanthropist had allegedly engaged to a UK-based lady, Sara, with the intention of making her his 7th wife.
The rumour began to gain attention on the social media when Ms. Sara, who has been in Nigeria for some time now, was spotted with Regina Daniels in Abuja last weekend, and was also said to be quartered in Ned Nwoko’s mansion. The fact that Regina Daniels had been sharing Sara’s photos and videos on both Instagram and Snapchat, added a new fuel to the speculation. In one of the photos, which Regina captioned: “wifey”, Sara was flaunting her engagement ring.
Unnamed sources later claimed that the newest bride was on the verge of undergoing a traditional marriage rite just like Regina Daniels, before being unveiled as wife #7 as Prince Nwoko’s customs demand.
Regina Daniels and Ned Nwoko, it would be recalled, held a traditional marriage in April, 2019, cementing her place as his sixth wife, after months of speculations surrounding their romance. However, since his marriage to Regina, now blessed with a son, the prince of Idumuje-Ugboko land in Aniocha-North LGA of Delta state, has endured persistent rumours over his next wife. Last September, the former House of Reps member’s alleged romantic relationship with Nollywood actress, Chika Ike, and plans to make her his 7th wife, stirred dusts. Controversy it generated continued to swirl until Ned issued a statement declaring: “I have not spoken to Chika Ike in two years. I have not seen her. This is wicked. People should leave me and my family alone.”
Despite the spirited efforts to dispel the notion that Neb was on the lookout for a seventh or eighth wife, social media commentators continue to speculate on that. “I think Ned Nwoko is going to get to the 10th wife. You can have as many wives and side-piece as you want. All you need is money. Lmfaooo feminism flies out the window fast. Regina Daniels should just collect her 6th spot in peace,” wrote a social media commentator @AimThaMachine.
