Nollywood is evolving and has given room for many multi-talented actors and actresses to grace the scenes of its many produced movies. But despite the influx of new faces, the likes of Regina Daniels will always ring a bell. Not only has she made her way to become one of the biggest fishes in the movie industry, but Regina has also become one of the most talked-about people in the country. Believe it or not, the young star is now listed among the richest Nollywood actresses, a list that includes the likes of Genevieve Nnaji, Mercy Johnson Okojie, and Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde. Regina Daniels reportedly has a net worth of N580 million that won’t have been amassed if not for her successful career.
How Regina Daniels Built Her N580 Million Fortune
Regina’s huge financial earnings won’t be surprising to many who are already aware of her talent and beauty. While much of her income comes from her acting career, the young actress is believed to have made some money from venturing into some other businesses. However, a higher percentage of her wealth is said to have come from her marriage to multi-millionaire businessman Ned Nwoko.
She Began Her Acting Career as a Child
Being a famous child actor takes lots of hard work. The time, dedication, and intelligence that a child actor must maintain in order to understand the finer points of acting deserve plenty of praise and celebration. But Regina was able to scale through it all and is now successful.
Born 10 October 2000 to a family in Delta State, Nigeria, Regina Daniels was raised by her mother Rita who is also a familiar face in the Nigerian film industry. Regina went on to make her acting debut at the age of seven, playing Onyinye in Marriage of Sorrow. As a child, the young actress had an eye for the big screen, hence her choice of Anjelina Jolie as her role model. Her first movie role earned her a take-home pay of about 10,000 Nigerian Naira.
