Chinedu The controversial media personality and actor Ani Emmanuel, commonly known as Nedu, claimed that the majority of the women who criticized the young actress Regina Daniels for marrying the more senior Ned Nwoko would do the same if given the chance.

He made the assertion on the most recent episode of the audiovisual podcast The Honest Bunch, which he also co-hosts.

Nedu said:

“Shoutout to Ned Nwoko and Regina Daniels. When the whole thing came on social media, everybody went berserk. Everybody was like, ‘what is Regina Daniels thinking?’

But everybody is praying to God of Regina Daniels. If Ned Nwoko comes now and say ‘every Lagos girl I want to marry all of you one by one.’ Plenty girls will queue up.

“I saw one post the other day, some weeks ago, where Ned Nwoko opened the door [for Regina Daniels], everybody dey say ‘Awnn! Couple goals. God when?”

The comic claimed that if a young man had wed an older woman, people would have assumed that he did so for financial gain
