Prince Ned Munir Nwoko was born on 21st December 1960 into the Royal Palace at Aniocha North LGA Idumuje-Ugboko, Delta state. Being from a royal lineage, Ned was able to attain a good education, which subsequently assisted him to excel in his professional career.

Nwoko is a Muslim and his middle name ‘Munir’ has Islamic origins. Although this is seen as rare because the Muslim majority are more concentrated in the northern and western parts of Nigeria. However, there is also a relatively strong community of followers of Islam in Delta state.



While Prince Ned was not an unknown person, he was rarely at the centre of media attraction. But it all changed following the then-rumours (that proved to true) that he was the person behind the expensive cars and other luxurious that his Nollywood child-star wife, Regina Daniel, was flaunting on the internet.

The rumours about Ned Nwoko and Regina Daniel grew more intense with her posting more pictures of her sophisticated shopping trips outside the country. If there was ever a group that believed Regina Daniels was spending all that money from her purse, they ceased to exist after the announcement of her secret wedding to Nwoko.                 


Tongues wagged over the age difference between Prince Ned Nwoko and his sixth (or fifth) wife, Regina. There is a statement credited to the billionaire where he said Regina Daniel was his fifth wife and not the sixth. So, we take that the former legislator is the authority on this one and will be using that number going forward.


Ned Nwoko was 59 years old when he became Regina Daniels' husband. His new wife was speculated to be anything between the ages of 18 and 20. Although, the former legislator allegedly said that his wife was 22 years old and not as young as the media were projecting. Sources reported that Regina’s real age was more likely to be 21 as of her 2019 birthday.


He entered the Nigerian political scene when he served as an elected legislator in the National House of Representatives from 1999-2003 where he represented Aniocha / Oshimili federal constituency and was a member of the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) at the time. He contested to be deputy speaker in the House but he lost to Chibudum Nwuche.


Prince Ned Munir Nwoko allegedly has a net worth less than $1 billion in 2019. Although some blogs estimate him to be worth more, he is not listed among the top 20 richest men in Nigeria in 2019. With Theophilus Danjuma being the fifth with less than $2 billion, if Ned was worth up to $1.2 billion, he would be included in the list.


However, despite not having his name on the richest Nigerians list, Prince Ned Nwoko has shown some impressive displays of wealth. He lives in a large house in Delta state that many refer to as “Castle in the Air”, a fairytale reference to its beauty and the fact that it is on a hill about a thousand feet above sea level.



In June 2020, Ned Nwoko and his young wife, Regina Daniels welcomed a baby boy. On 10th July 2020, the couple named their baby Munir Neji Ned Nwoko. They held a naming ceremony at Nwoko’s Abuja Mansion and Estate.
