Ibinabo Fiberesima, Nigerian film actress, has declared her support to Regina Daniels and husband, Ned Nwoko, saying they deserve to be happily married.
Okay.ng understands that the former President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria also slammed Shan George, a colleague, for cursing Ned publicly over the marriage.
Fiberesima wrote on Instagram:
“I can stake everything on Prince Ned Nwoko’s integrity. I know him personally and so I can vouch for him. If he’s found happiness in Regina and she’s accepted to reciprocate, then I think it’s the height of hypocrisy and joblessness to interfere in their lives. Regina is my daughter, I love her and will always be there for her. Rita is my sister and I adore her as a dotting mother. Prince Ned is a big brother and I am deeply inspired by him.
I stand with Prince Ned and Regina Nwoko and their inalienable right to happiness. I say to them Happy Married life. May God bless your union with joy and beautiful children and may He use you both as a source of succour to many Nigerians; amen.
God bless us all.”
Furthermore, in another post, she criticized Shan George saying:
“I’ve listened to various comments, read the opinions, sometimes laced with vitriol and I’ve come to the conclusion that majority of Nigerians ascribe to themselves this pristine and Olympian moral standing which they believe gives them a divine right to judge others and poke their nose into what ordinarily is none of their business even when stinking skeletons are crying for air in their own wardrobes. How else can one explain the fact that a young adult girl’s marriage to a man she loves and has pledged to spend her life with has suddenly become a potent topic of national discourse. The angst people throw concerning this issue would make one believe Prince Ned Nwoko a gentleman in his own right kidnapped, defiled and further coerced ‘an underage’ Regina Daniels into a sham of a union.
I must say along the line I found most deplorable and downright disappointing the comment of my sister and friend Shan George. Though she deleted it (of course she forgot the Internet and it’s complexities) I found her comment rude and frankly ill thought. A person of her stand who should know better going ahead on social media to call out Prince Ned as ‘disgusting and shameless’ for marrying a ‘child’ and even questioning what he’s done for his people is vindictive and vile. This is the same Prince Ned Munir Nwoko who has been a humanitarian philanthropist per excellence, a father to so many and is a man who has given his life to helping complete strangers all over the country, done so much for his community and Nigeria at large and is still doing so much in every sphere. Shan dear. No. You no try. He deserves an apology from you.
Please, these are questions and facts dearest Shan and our morally upright judges are seemingly oblivious to; Regina has worked extremely hard since childhood to attain her celebrity status and clout and doesn’t need a man to keep her comfortable or in the limelight. She met with Ned, saw something she loved about him and ‘agreed’ to marry him when he ‘proposed’ to her. She is not a side chic but a fully married woman. Once married, the union officially became nobody’s business. She will not be the first in this scenario and will not be the last.”
