This throwback video of Regina Daniels and Mercy Johnson Okojie will leave you smiling

When pupa turns into an adult butterfly, we quickly forget the process and all it endured just before it became a spectacle of beauty. This narrative above is a perfect summary of who Regina Daniels was before becoming the beautiful butterfly that she is today.  

A recent post on Instagram, showing an old Nollywood movie featuring Regina Daniels Nwoko, Mercy Johnson and Van Vicker has left us smiling as we admire the once young and innocent damsel, who today has become a billionaire wife, mother and model to many others.

The younger version of Regina Daniels acting as an only child to Van Vicker, who was also being catered to by Mercy Johnson, did nothing to hide her innocence and her acting skill at a young age, of which I must say was very impressive. 

From her cute smile and her tiny frame perfectly merged in the motion picture, we can say, the young pupa turned out to be a beautiful butterfly indeed. 


Over the years, we've watched Regina Daniels grow on-screen and transform into one of the most sought after today. Apart from being an Instagram sensation and food for the tabloids, 19-year-old actress and mother of one has given us outstanding performances back to back with other star actors and actresses in the Nigerian movie industry. 

She has acted alongside stars like Mercy Johnson, Francis Duru, Patience Ozokwo, Eve Esin, Chika Ike, Zubby Michael, and IK Ogbonna, amongst several others in movies such as Dumebi in School, Plantain girl, Tears of Ojugo, Heart of a Twin, Python girl, The Jericho and Royal Covenant.

Regina Daniels became the most talked about Nollywood celebrity in Nigeria in the year 2019 and still remains one of tabloids most relevant topics on Nigerian entertainment. She broke the internet with her marriage to Billionaire politician, Ned Munir Nwoko who is 38 years older than her. What's worse was the fact that she was still rumoured to be tethered to her ex, Somadina Adinma who suddenly disappeared into the dark when Ned stepped on the scene.

Amidst the controversy that surrounded her relationship with Ned, her family was also hit with a lot of backlash from the public as her father clearly didn't give his blessing and her mum was called out for giving her daughter out to a much older man.

Today all that is in the past as the lovely couple now have a son together and her father who was said to have been against the union is now a part of the family as he blessed them at the recently held naming ceremony of their son, Munir Neji Ned Nwoko.
