It's no secret, actress Regina Daniels's baby was born with a silver spoon in his mouth... after all his dad is billionaire businessman Ned Nwoko.

And if the newborn tot - whose name has yet to be shared publicly - didn't have enough status and privilege as is, he's just been given more by being named 'Nollywood Baby Of The Year'.

The title was bestowed on him by the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) who sent a group of representatives to visit Regina, Ned and their new baby boy at their home this week.

AGN President Emeka Rollas presented gifts to the couple as well as the 'official title' to the week-old infant. "This is our baby, Nollywood baby of the year, we are here to rejoice with your family" he told the happy family.

Ned was pleased with the visit and jokingly compared the group to 'wise men from the east', playing on his son's likeness to baby Jesus.

But not everyone was happy about the procession...

Nollywood actress Kemi "Lala" Akindoju called out the organisation for embarking on a publicity stunt, when she believed they should be dealing with more pertinent issues.

She also called their visit "shameful".

Taking to Twitter, Lala wrote; "This is actually shameful. In these times where the actor’s guild should show leadership on pressing issues like navigating the industry with COVID-19, like creating structures to stop sexual harassment in the industry. This is their priority."

Some tweeps also questioned the validity and significance of the baby's new title as well as if the AGN visited all mothers in the entertainment industry who had just given birth. Then there was the all-important issue of Covid-19 and social distancing, which the group clearly didn't adhere to.

A few tweeps called out the organisation for trying to impress Ned, in the hopes he would give them money.

Another questioned why Mercy Johnson's baby had received no such honour.

Do you think it's fair that Regina's baby receive the title 'Nollywood Baby Of The Year'?
