Ned Nwoko, billionaire businessman and husband to actress Regina Daniels, has finally reacted to rumors that he’s dating movie star, Chika Ike and plans to marry her as his 7th wife.
The politician in a statement released by his media directorate, debunked all reports on the matter, tagging them fake news.
According to him, the story is false and wicked.
The statement read in part;
“I have not spoken to Chika Ike in two years. I have not seen her. This is wicked. People should leave me and my family alone”.
Recall that social media has been abuzz with rumours of an engagement between the former lawmaker and Chika Ike.
Recall that a blogger had gone viral after appearing in a YouTube video, claiming that Regina’s mother, Rita Daniels, made a video where she expressed anger with Chika.
Shortly before the said blogger came on the screen, an anonymous female voice was heard, in Pidgin English, seemingly quoting from an alleged video made by Rita Daniels complaining thus “Chika Ike leave my pikin husband for me o. Leave my pikin husband, if not I go enter spiritual for you.”
However, Rita Daniels swiftly reacted and expressed disappointment with the makers of the video, describing it the clip as a criminal manipulation of the original where she only sang an innocuous song of praise to God.
“May God equip us with wisdom knowledge, understanding, and common sense of reasoning with the way we judge people. Let God be my judge and judge those wey dey judge me wrongly…. Happy Sunday fam. God bless you all,” She wrote on her Instagram page.
Regina’s mother had also debunked the reports during an interview with BBC.
This is also as Chika Ike while answering a fan’s question, described the reports as nonsensical, urging the public to disregard the mischievous rumours.
Meanwhile, Prince Nwoko has reportedly vowed to use all legitimate means to bring the perpetrators of the fake video to justice as a deterrence.
Ned Nwoko’s most recent marriage was to acting sensation, Regina Daniels in April 2019, and the union was blessed with a baby boy in June 2020.
