Regina Askia was once a big deal in Nigeria, but no one believes her in the US


The former beauty queen and actress moved to the US many many years back where she dropped her glamour cloak to become a wife, mother and a registered nurse. Totally different from the life she led in Nigeria. She shared her current situation on her Facebook page. See the rest of after the cut...

It sounds ℓi̶̲̥̅ke̶̲̥̅ she misses the celeb life, there's a time to let such things go and J̲̥̅̊u̶̲̥̅̊s̶̲̥̅̊t̲̥̅̊ let the past remain as it is- past. She's had a good run as a beauty queen and then as an actress, that was wonderful, but its history, now she's got a family, she should work on their happiness and hers and try and find as much contentment as she had during her heyday. I loved her and still appreciate her now

Not new gist. I remember telling folks working beside me at Burger King that I had a bachelors degree in Microbiology and they would snicker and laugh. When I was going to grad school, I told my factory mates I was going to grad school. They asked me how one could go to grad school without an undergrad. That's ignoramus Americans for you.

Sounds more like a farewell speech to the USA ? Hmmmmm, dunno .
I remembered those years...She, Dolly Unachukwu and Victoria Inyama were the doyens of Nig home movies, now Nollywood, they were indeed icons and really paved way for these little ones. Talking about dez trio, Linda could you pls dig on Victoria Inyama ? Love dat babe...may be cus I looked up to her dose days.

Regina was actually d baddest bish at dat time....mid 90s. She had d glamour and exuded d confidence of some1 at d top of her game. I liked her cos of her hazel eyes n she was quite articulate. All in all,am tempted to say her move to d U.S really didn't do her career any good(I think she must av even had delusions of breakin into Hollywood!) Good to c that she's thriving in her present endeavours anyway. Wish u d best,Reg! Bukky.

LOL! Regina Askia should be celebrated like the likes of Liz Benson and co.

I sense depression and regrets.dis woman craves dat past life but so sorry,its gone forever.old age has caught up with her too.dat black american riffraff she married in her home in vgc years back was her undoing cos he's a gigolo.relocating to the states with him,thinking all would be rosy made her realise she made a huge mistake cos she suffered so much,and couldn't leave cos of shame.her ex,her daughter's(stephanie)dad helped a lot financially b4 she went to study nursing.moral of her story:there are good men back home in nigeria dat every decent hardworking woman can build her life with,make good choices ladies.Honourable tonyepriye

There is a massive difference between being a small fish in a big pond and being a big fish in a small pond. This is what this woman is experiencing. It must be tough for her to swallow.
Europe and America is a leveler for us Africans. It is like starting all over again. Any African abroad who misses the pecks of home like house helps ( house boys , house girls, drivers etc etc) can go back home. Simple. This woman' mind is really in turmoil. It is good that she is verbalising it. I hope the husband is awake and not in stage 4 of deep sleep. I would not be surprised if she divorces her husband one day and then 'scatter scatter' her family thinking that the grass is greener on the other side.
Seeing all the nollywood queens enjoying their newly acquired fame and comparing this to taking care of sick baby boomers in USA must be very nauseating for our dear US based nurse. I can't blame her. Life is not fair. It is not meant to be. Period. My advice to this woman is, please don't divorce your husband and scatter your family. Just hang in there and make sure your kids take advantage of the educational system in the US. For some of us is better setting up drips for sick people than being a nollywood queen.

Such is life, in life we only have Current Champion, we do not have Evergreen Champion, thank God she still has something doing for herself & others(Nursing) 15 years ago, I could not forget your role with Ayo Adesanya, Ibinabo the AGN, Bidemi Fadayomi & so on, in 'Most Wanted' till today, the movie is still one of the best movies produced in Nigeria, people like Regina Askia, Liz Benson, Babara Soky/Odoh, Gloria Anoze, Sandra Achums, Joke Silva,Eucharia Anunobi, Saint Obi,Bukky Ajayi, Zack Orji, Hilda Dokubo, & many more deserve to be celebrated,then when u watch their movies, you will like to watch it again & again. Let the government appoint them as Executives into any body partaining to Entertainment, while they are still alive, we really need to appreciate these people, they r the real Nollywood, Welldone Regina, Mama B!

Am sorry for deviating from the main post, But i have to confess am so addicted to Linda Ikejis blog that i had to go back to way back 2007 just to see how the blog was operating then and i must confess it was such a beautiful experience.. People like Toni Payne chude of ynaija and even funmi Iyanda were regular callers wow, Toni was always dropping comment and she was so matured with the way she always address each issues and Linda was always stopping by to also drop her own comment despite that she is the owner of the blog.. And one thing i also noticed was the fact that during the evolution of Linda ikejis blog i think most of libbers then were basically in the diaspora, Cos i think Nigerians were not that into blogging and i think the proliferation of blackberry phones and other smart phones gave the home based Nigerians the opportunity to start trolling the blog and ever since, they got to know about linda ikeji blog they have hijacked this once peaceful and interesting blog spot and turned it into a hub of hate and insults names calling and what have you... Fine i know linda is enjoying all the traffic and all the craziness that comes with it but Linda you yourself can testify to one fact that your blog was more and more matured and interesting than what it is today cos initially i noticed that bloggers will just come to your blog and drop their comment and no one was ready to shut the other individual down or tell his or her fellow individual how he or she couldn't spell a word correctly and all that childish non charlatan behavior.. But now you get to see a prince Jobless telling a bonario that he is stupid and u see a bi lie jean always looking for who will commit a grammatical blunder so that she can tell the person how fucked his or her life is, Or you get to see a prince charming ready to pick on celebrities and their useless ways of life.. Linda i think you need to restore some sanity into your blog by censoring what this guys bring on here cos right now to be honest with you even Basket mouth had to admit on Bella Naija that Linda Ikejis blog is the chief hub of haters. Instead of we to always hate and pull our fellow celebrities and Nigerians down lets pull all our corrupt and wicked politicians down and lets start our own Arab spring cos if we look at what is going on here in Nigeria i think we long due for our own kind of Arab spring or revolution... With social media mediums like Linda ikejis blog we can send our message of pains frustration insecurity corruption and abject poverty to the world so that the global word will know how we living here in Nigeria and they will also be aware of how our our so called government are treating us... Please Linda the only thing you can do for me is for you to make sure you post my comment k.. Thank You And God bless...From Iyke..

STOP TELLIN people in yankee you were the most beautiful, its a disgrace. sorry if thats harsh but shes "Very Average" like Gen nnaji, Omo T, Tonto dikeh, ini edo, stella damasus ALL very average.

Nonso said...


Nigerians have forgotten how evil some people are, are you meant to keep a friend who envies you and wishes for your downfall? A friend who tries to snatch your girlfriend or boyfriend? Not all old friends are genuine friends.... Remember good company is better than bad company, so Nigerians should not be deceived thinking because you want to keep old friends that you should accept bad friends and bad influences in your life... Be wise, great men on earth are usually destroyed by the so called "old friends"

I have always known that Regina will regret her move to the United States. Here was a girl getting all the glamour and attention in Nigeria, suddenly saying she is relocating to the US. Now she is nobody when alot of her contemporaries who remained in the country are making it and getting prominence in Nigeria. The lesson in all this is that the best place for a Nigerian is Nigeria, for a Ghanian is Ghana and for an American is America. Anywhere else you are a bloody slave. Period..

Anonymous said...

I deffo understand the irony of Regina's post, the pains & blessing. Honestly i would never give it a thought if i haven't felt those moments myself. Its a diff world living here in the states if u ve' ever been exposed to fame and fortune back home. To complicate matters is these Black americans (as they ve' resolved to identify as rather than be referred to as African American, thats for African immigrants) do not see/ regard us as one. It leaves you wondering where do y'all come from then?
How could i forget when one said "Oh no you can tell an African when u see one, they kind of have this bone/ facial structure that u could just tell"
She sugacoat it so well I was like B* clap for yourself, your ignorance is bliss

I used to enjoy getting as an actress years ago and I sure still see her as Regina Askia; but I couldn't really figure out why she decided to say all that on her FB page, is she complaining? It could be worse though! I just hope she feels fulfilled, this is not the time to burden yourself with "what could have been" because that's just an imagination. In all things, give thanks.

Think most people are missing the point here... The fact that she has come out to speak so candidly about her past means she does NOT regret it. There is more to life than fame and fortune and sometimes when you have it you realize how empty it all is... I bet she is more fulfilled now, touching more lives and thats the reason we are here not for the glamour etc. My respect for her has just gone up a thousand fold; you go girl!!!

Aww regina, hope you are happy. Don't know about genny cause I know in the movie most wanted, genny played an extra while regina played lead but I know Omotola gave her competition . I remember it was always either omotola or regina that would get a part .i think case study was Chico ejiros Daybreak. The hype was who out of the 2 will get the part , then omotola it was. She still looks good though.

Hi Regina,

It is well. You are somebody! You are one of the people who can beat their chest and say you are one of those who started the great Nollywood that the whole world is now crazy about.

When 'black americans' think you're winding them up. Tell them to ask about you; you are on google and you are in wikipedia! How many people can boast of that?

Nigeria is your home, you can always come back and be a tv show host, a judge at AMBO, act in a nollywood movie....

We know you, we love you and are proud to call you our own. Regards to your family. God bless you and keep you.

Beauty sure fades * she was a queen.

She sounds although she missed the life of a celeb that she was.

She was a gifted actress Nollywood is yet to have the likes of her.

Honestly Linda, in as much as I like your blog, it seems you have lots of immature fellas in this house. A lot of people saying blabs here don't know who Regina is. They only believe everything is about being a celebrity for life.

Linda, tell me anyone in the Nollywood apart from old papas that has PhD?

Also, the poverty level in this country has gone into some peoples' head which is making them to lose focus and killing their ambitions.

Honestly Linda, you need to help this country by reorientating people via ur blog. Stop being concerned alone about the money you will make from band-wit. Please help!

Eiyaaaaaaaaah living the American dream has become a nightmare. Small girls like Genevieve and omotola that she left have become BIG NAMES. Come back Regina but boooooy would it be a struggle my advise hit the gym first and get that sexy back then let a personal stylist do the rest i see your wack style hasn't improved.

Your written English is despicable. I would hate to have a conversation with you.

Lol @ Newspaper clippings, that would be a tough one now. Suicide Mission was my favourite of her movies.

The thought of moving to America back when Regina did was so appealing, but now, with the likes of Genvieve and Omotola bridging the international stardom divide and being very relevant both home and abroad makes Regina's current situation appalling. She could have been a household name both here and abroad if she had played her cards right.

We live with the choices we make..i dont think her post sounds full of regrets and i think she was just looking back with fond memories and taking stock..We all do so esp if you are about to hit a milestone age like 40 or 50..May God help us to follow the right path we are destined to in our time on earth

Why do Nigerians tear each other so bad? And what's with all the yawns? You don't have to read the post,you don't have to comment,just get a life. She is a lady that has lived a fulfilled life and now she is content where she is.What is your problem guys? You have such low memory span that such expanded write-up by Regina Askia gets you confused.Get a life and become something so we can read about you someday.

Hiss.... Abeg abeg, dis woman shed go n SITDOWN! What a load of rubbish ...*yawns* she was a poor actress and an overrated beauty queen wit her fake americalabar accent bk then. Nonsense....surely her colleagues (unlike naijas) can c past her pussy eyes n see derz nu thin else special about her. Everyone knows d easiest career path for an immigrant without corporate qualifications (dare i say sans respected qualifications even)is nursing; so pls who does she think she's fooling?

She lived a so-called highlife courtesy if her whitey expat with whom she had a Baby. Shame she ended up wit a poor man who can't buy her an SUV n put her up in a house with swimming pool n domestic staff catering to her needs n she is paid to clean old oyibo ppls shit.

Poor Regina. Beauty isn't everything. You were too shortsighted n shud have spent our youth planning our future but noooo ....now u r making noise expecting sympathy. Abeg go n sit down in d moon if u like. Or glory days r long gone n no one in naija cares. Deal wit it!

Most regular working folks in U.S.A do not understand how we foreigners are able to do all that we do, because most of them just wait for their retirement.
