I realized she was a virgin - Billionaire Ned Nwoko speaks on why he married Regina Daniels

Nigerian billionaire, Prince Ned Nwoko, has spoken about why he chose to marry actress Regina Daniels as one of his wives.

According to the 60-year-old lawyer, he loved the 19-year-old actress at first sight when she visited his home in his village with her family for a tour.

However, he added that one thing that reinforced his decision to marry her is because he realized she was a virgin.

Ned was speaking to Friday Olokor, a journalist with Nigeria’s The Punch Newspaper. Asked how he met the actress, he said “ When I met her, I didn’t even know who she was because I don’t watch movies, whether British, Nigerian or American. Also, I am not a social media person. So, I didn’t know about Regina until she came to my house with her family on a tour. My house in the village (Aniocha North Local Government Area, Delta State) is a tourist attraction of sorts”.

Speaking about marrying her, he said “I liked her when I saw her, especially when I found out that she was from that place. I had always wanted to have somebody (a wife) from my side. We were introduced to each other and one thing led to another. That was when I found out she is a very decent girl”.

Talking about what influences whom he picks as a wife, he said “I have always said that I wouldn’t marry anybody who isn’t a virgin and that is very important to me. When I found out that she was a virgin, it reinforced my decision to marry her. I married all my wives as virgins”.

The actress and the billionaire have welcomed a child together and they named him yesterday at a colorful ceremony.
