Published

on

Nigerian businessman and lawyer, Ned Nwoko, has revealed that he married popular Nollywood actress, Regina Daniels and his other wives as virgins because it is very important to him.

In a recent interview with Sunday Punch, Ned Nwoko stated why he decided to marry Regina Daniels was because of where she came from, finding out she was a decent girl and a virgin as all his wives were married as virgins.

When asked why he chose to marry Regina Daniels, 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. Up until that time, I didn’t have Facebook or Instagram accounts. 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.

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. 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.
