Barr. Jude Ojegwu, the father of Nollywood Actress, Regina Daniels, made a surprise appearance at the ceremony to name her first child Munir in Abuja, putting to rest the controversy surrounding her marriage to billionaire businessman and former member of the House of Representatives, Prince Ned Nwoko.
The hitherto aggrieved father of the popular actress told journalists that with the arrival of the baby, he had forgotten everything and accepted it as the wish of God.
It was gathered that Ojegwu was said to have vehemently opposed the marriage between his daughter and Nwoko because of age differences.
During the event, Nwoko said he had yet to reach his target on the number of children he wanted, saying at the appropriate time, the target would be known.
Nwoko, who said he would father more children, according to Islamic faith, said he married the actress because she is peaceful, loving, disciplined and homely.
“My little boy is bearing my middle name, Munir. It means light. It is an Islamic name and I am a Muslim. I am still very young, I have my target when it comes to child-bearing and I have not reached my target yet. God speaks through man. So when the time comes, you will know. Regina is a lovely woman, patient, easy-going, homely, disciplined and peaceful”, he stated.
Regina Daniels father said the birth of Munir Nwoko, his grandson, made him change his mind for the sake of peace, joy and happiness.
The birth of this child has answered the question (about the controversy); everybody craves for peace, joy and happiness. I have accepted everything. I feel very happy having a grandchild and that is why I am here. I travelled all the way from Lagos to this place just to celebrate with the family. I told him (Nwoko) and the mother to call him Ifechukwude which means what God has written.”
The event attracted many Nollywood stars, including Oge Okoye and Segun Arinze.
Meanwhile, recall that barely five months ago, Rita Daniels, the celebrity mother of Regina, sparked fresh controversy on social media over her daughter’s union to Ned Nwoke when she revealed that Regina got married as a virgin.
