The similarities between both Nigerian celebs might seem inconsequential but they are worthy of note.
These similarities are carefully listed out in this piece after careful research on both celebrities.
However, one attribute distinguishes Regina Askia from Regina Daniels. Regina Askia was a beauty queen who reigned as Miss Unilag, and contested for Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria, Miss Charm International and represented Nigeria at Miss International.
Here are the three similarities between Regina Daniels and Regina Askia.
Regina Daniels and Regina Askia have a common name, Regina. The name seems synonymous with beauty and almost 30-years after the reign of Regina Askia on the Nigerian social scene, a young and new Regina Daniels has taken over the baton. Just like the days of Regina Askia, Regina Daniels remains the most popular Nigerian celeb with the name Regina in the last 14 months. Her increasing fame reminds one of the years between 1990 and 2001 when Regina Askia reigned supreme.
Regina Askia’s claim to fame might not be solely acting but her incursion into Nollywood seems to be one of her best decisions ever. The 53-year-old mother of three remains one of the most beautiful faces that drew attention to Nollywood in the early 90s and 2000s. Just like Askia, Regina Daniels is fast becoming one of the most beautiful faces to come out of Nollywood. She has featured in a lot of movies – although a few cinemas hits – and her claim to fame remains acting, which is a decision made for her by her mum, Rita. It is worthy to note that both Reginas are not fantastic actors but their prominence as Nigerian celebrities is rooted in their acting in Nollywood movies.
Both Regina Daniels and Regina Askia made good use of their beautiful faces and banging bodies for brand and fashion endorsements. They took into modeling and have endorsed a couple of brands. In her time, Askia appeared in several Nigerian print and television commercials including Kessingsheen Hair Care, boutique chain Collectibles, and most famously, Visine.
She also worked on several runway shows. In 2007, she modeled for the 2000-N-Six face cleansing range alongside her daughter, model Stephanie. Regina Daniels has towed the same path with two major endorsements and modeling jobs. Regina Daniels has modeled and endorsed for House of Sapphire and Lunettes eyewear
