Nigerian superstar Emmanuella Samuel has debunked speculations that billionaire Ned Nwoko proposed marriage to her.
Rumours are rife that the politician, married to Regina Daniels, was attempting to wed the teenage kid sensation.
The content creator debunked the news at the weekend, describing it as fake.
12-year-old Emmanuella responded to a Facebook comment under a photo she posted.
Emmanuella made her foray into comedy at the age of five. She was on a family holiday and met with Angel. He needed some children for his comedy shoot, and called a few children he knew for the audition, but they couldn’t memorize their lines and he then turned to Emmanuella. Despite the eighteen-hour-long video shoot, a stunt he pulled to test the endurance of the kids, Emmanuella did well.
After her selection, Angel had to convince her parents to let her become a part of the Mark Angel Comedy team and got their approval. And she was featured in Australian movie titled: Survive or Die. She became well known after the comedy skit “This is Not My Real Face Oh”, in which she was making jokes about a headmistress to her fellow students without knowing the student was the child of the headmistress.
This short skit was featured on CNN‘s Facebook page. On 2 April 2020, during the COVID-19 lockdowns, Emmanuella, Success, and Regina Daniels were featured in a skit by Ofego titled “Lockdown” on his YouTube channel using archive footage.

“I don’t know how true it is. That Ned Nwoko is already receiving a marriage list from your parents.
“Pls if true…please don’t spoil your future. U don’t know what marriage is”, the fan added.
In her response, Emmanuella stated: “Fake news ma, Thanks.”
On Friday, a post by a Twitter user @PHCJagaban sparked outrage and angry reactions.
“Ned Nwoko is currently in talks with Emmanuella’s family over a marriage proposal list, though the fee was undisclosed owing to family refusal.
“Ned is prepared to make another offer that will see Emmanuella being transferred from Port Harcourt to Asaba via a marriage deal”, it reads.
Born July 22, 2010, the comedian is one of the most popular in Africa with more than 16 million social media followers.
