Ned Nwoko says he met young actress, Regina Daniels a virgin when they decided to tie the knot.
The 59-year-old billionaire businessman and former lawmaker made this known while answering questions about his marriage to the 19-year-old movie sensational during a chat with Punch newspaper.
“Why not Regina? 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. Up until that time, I didn’t have Facebook or Instagram accounts,” he said.
“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.”
Nwoko went on to reveal how he got attracted and his love for the actress got reinforced when he found out she was a virgin.
“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,” he said.
“That was when I found out she is a very decent girl. 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.”
Daniels and Nwoko tied the knot back in 2019.
The traditional ceremony took place on Sunday, May 26, 2019, in Aniocha local government area, Delta State.
They welcomed their first child together in June 2020, Pulse reports.
