This is the last day of the year 2019. This year, quite a number of female Nigerian celebrities took the entertainment industry by storm. These women broke the internet. Their stories went viral, whether it was good or bad publicity.
At some point in 2019, these women were some of the most searched people on Google. Below are five female celebrities that broke the internet in 2019.
1. Regina Daniels
This beautiful wife of billionaire lawyer Ned Nwoko broke the internet in 2019. At first, social media users were shocked by the display of wealth from this actress said to be in her early twenties. Regina first bought her mother a house in Asaba, Delta State. Not too long after, she bought a G-Wagon and a Rolex Wristwatch said to be worth millions of naira.
It was not too long, that our “social media investigators” found out that her sponsor was politician Ned Nwoko who she was dating at the time. In May 2019, they had their traditional wedding ceremony in Idumuje Ugboko, Delta State. Regina then became a household name in Nigeria. Comedians even used her to crack jokes; this was because of the age difference between 19-year-old Regina and 59-year-old Ned Nwoko.
However, Regina has been able to live above all of this publicity. In an interview with Daddy Freeze, she revealed that she loves her husband and calls him “baby”. Nigerians have since let her issue rest and allowed her to enjoy her married life in peace.
