AY Makun: Regina Daniels Joins Merry Men, Regina Daniels’ claim to fame is believed to be acting after securing a role in the 2010 movie, ‘Miracle Child’ alongside Ini Edo, Chika Ike, and Mercy Johnson.
She was further shot into the limelight after acting opposite Mercy Johnson-Okojie in AMVCA nominated movie, ‘Dumebi Goes To School’ in 2014.
Despite being in the movie industry for 12 years – she’s reported to have gotten her first role at the seven – Daniels is yet to metamorphose into a star actress.
Daniels’ role as Zara, the biological daughter of Chief Anthony Adewale, in the movie, ‘The Enemy I know’ was an easy to pull off yet she failed to nail it.
The youngest wife of politician and London trained solicitor, Ned Nwoko, featured in the film as the major character. The story revolves around Zara, whom every member of the Adewale’s Dynasty scramble to kill just to own the fortunes of the late wealthy businessman.
Sola Sobowale plays the role of Zara’s -Regina Daniels – mum and it should have been an easy pull off, yet the actress is yet to drop the gown of a ‘child actor’.
Daniels failed in bringing life to her character as her lines were as drawl as her character in ‘Dumebi goes to School’ where she plays the young primary school girl drawn to an unusually older schoolmate, Dumebi (played by Mercy Johnson-Okojie).
Though Daniels came through with her stunning looks, and stylish fashion sense, which has played a huge role in her rise to fame in the last 24 months, she failed to interpret the role and character of Zara, who was a naive lady in her early 20s.
Interestingly, Tana Adelana, who played her cousin in the film, and who equally has good looks and could pass for Zara Adewale, would have been a perfect fit for the role.
From Tana to Sola Sobowale and Ken Erics, the established acts tried effortlessly to help Daniels nail Zara’s character but it simply amounted to a fruitless effort.
It’s worthy to note that Daniels will be appearing alongside BBNaija’s ex-housemate, Alex Asogwa for the sequel to AY’s 2018 flick, ‘Merry Men’.
Daniels and Alex joined Iretiola Doyle, Nancy Isime, and Linda Osifo for the movie which is due for release in December 2019.
The 20-year-old actress will be playing the role of ‘Kenya’ in ‘Merry Men 2’.
