Nollywood actress Regina Daniels has no doubt been one of the most discussed personalities on the Nigerian entertainment scene. The actress who has been revealed to be married to Billionaire Ned Nwoko made headlines when she started unveiling a lot of luxury items including a mansion for her mother. A lot of people are however divided as to the life she has chosen to live. Some are not comfortable with the fact that the 19-year-old actress is married as a sixth wife to a 56-year-old man while others feel she has done good for herself and has the right to make her life choices.
Actresses like Tonto Dikeh and Yvonne Jegede are in full support of her, as long as she finds happiness in the relationship. Some actresses are even inspired to find their own old and rich Prince Charming. One of the actresses ready to tow Daniels’ line is Sylvia Ukaatu. According to her, she will not hesitate to jump at any marriage proposal from a man far older than her as long as he’s rich and ready to make her happy and comfortable.
“I believe it’s her (Regina Daniel’s) choice. People should learn to mind their businesses. How many are peacefully married to their young husbands? How many are enjoying their marriages? Regina made her choice, so let’s leave her to enjoy it. I believe many who badmouth her would jump at such an opportunity if they get it. Age is just a number; what matters is mutual understanding and support for each other. Honestly, if I have such an opportunity, I will grab it, as long as he takes good care of me and spoils me with goodies.
“If any old suitor comes for me now and he is as rich as Ned Nwoko, I will accept his marriage proposal without blinking. Who doesn’t like sugar? Poverty is a curse. So, I’d rather marry a man who would respect and adore me, regardless of his age,” she told Inside Nollywood.
This is not the first time the outspoken actress would be raising eyebrows as she has also in the past advocated that women should have sex with their men before marriage, therefore speaking against the teachings of the major Nigerian religions.
“It’s an individual opinion but there is nothing wrong in giving in to sex before marriage when it comes to two consensual adults who know what they want. I will give in to sex before marriage because I can’t shout I need to know if my man is fit for the match. It is a serious business because it will be appalling to discover after marriage that my man cannot stay for five minutes in bed,” she told Potpourri in a one-on-one chat.
