Regina Askia BACK in Nigeria after Years Away



Regina Askia Williams 2Nollywood leading lady Regina Askia-Williams shocked fans when she relocated to the United States of America over a decade ago.

The former beauty queen is currently in Nigeria for a visit and has been keeping fans and friends updated on her activities.

She recently shared details on her emotional reunion with her mother via her Facebook page

Finally in my mothers arms, in the village. Finally got my share of the ikpan, the isip mbakara, the ekpang nkukwo, aaahhh……Walked around the ranging farm house, my sister had the house all done up nieces and nephews vying to show new skills and sending messages of love to Teesa and Rudy……..Had long discussion with Uncle mmi. It was sunny, beautiful and hot….Palm fronds swaying, cool breeze blowing, tropical scents wafting…….Africa my Africa

Regina also discussed her experience at a civil war Memorial event in Akwa Ibom

Finally in Uyo, AKS. Attended a memorial service for the slain victims of the civil war. Specifically those accused by their kin of being saboteurs, who were tortured and shot at the City center. Families of the victims prayed for forgiveness of the perpetuators and for the peaceful repose of their lost relations. Tears and hugs as families laid wreaths and embraced each other. The choir sang beautiful solemn hymns.The clergy man prayed against the spirit of Absolom ( returning hate for love) against the spirit of Saul, and against the spirit of Cain ( brother slaying brother in the name of politics and power). Governor Akpabio preached about the city of Jerusalem and where there was admonishment of Jerusalem, a city who rejected and stoned her prophets, ooh Jerusalem, the Governor admonished, ooooohhh Uyo. Ooh Uyo, how long are you going to continue to stone (so to speak) and reject your leaders, how long will you continue to close your eyes to the good brought to you, Oooh Uyo……. Today we will embark on an appraisal tour to see the uncommon transformation of AKS…..So far I’m in awe of the infrastructural changes. Akwaibomites let me hear from you……….

Sounds like a career in politics or advocacy may be in the cards for Regina!

    I still remember when she and Nike Oshinowo were neck and neck in that whole beauty queen popularity contest that played out in the media. Guess we all know who won that contest hands…
