According to Femi Adebayo, being an actor has made him do some terrible things such as slapping his father


5. Rita Daniels and Regina Daniels


These popular acting buddies need no introduction because of their enviable relationship while on set and in real life.



Regina Daniels began her journey into Nollywood as a child actor way back in 2007. Forward to 2020, she is arguably the richest and most talked about actress in Nigeria.



Just like Femi Adebayo, Regina Daniels once gave her mom a hot slap all the name of acting.


Regina Daniels welcomed her first child some weeks ago. We don’t know what the future holds but maybe one day he would love to follow his mum’s footstep.


If Regina Daniels son choose to become an actor when he grows up, we certainly hope he doesn’t slap his mum in a movie.
