Daniel Regha blasts Toyin Abraham’s Ijakumo movie at Trendupp Awards
Taiwo Owolawi, met up with Daniel Regha at the Trendupp Awards and asked him if he was aware of Toyin Abraham’s tweet. The young influencer said he was not aware of what she posted but he was also not hoping to see her.
“I hope I don’t see her o. She wants to see me for what?”
When asked if he would be able to criticise Toyin Abraham’s movie to her face, Daniel Regha made it clear that he was not moved and he would be able to confront her because she cannot beat him in public.
According to the Twitter personality, he had wasted almost two-hours of his time seeing her movie as the film did not make any sense to him.
“Why won’t I say it to her face? Where is she? The movie did not make any sense and I regret I just wasted more than 2 hours watching Netflix that I even borrowed from my landlord. The movie did not make any sense honestly, If she is here I will say it to her face, she cannot beat me in public nau.”

However, the top actress declined to comment on the situation. According to her, she does not talk about people.
“I won’t answer your question, I don’t talk about people, I only talk about myself.”
Daniel Regha takes to Twitter to defend his stance
After the Trendupp Awards, Regha took to Twitter to send a message to Toyin Abraham. He tweeted at her to let her know he heard she wanted to see him.
Not stopping there, the Twitter personality stood his ground by adding that her Ijakumo movie was poorly written and directed. He however added that even though he supports her as an actress, her support for the APC government after the END SARS protest goes against everything he stands for.
See his tweet below:
Hi @toyin_abraham1, I was repeatedly told u wanted to see me, but I chose to ignore cos while I respect u as an actress, u supporting this govt after the EndSARS protests, goes against everything I stand for. That said, "Ijakumo" movie was poorly written & directed. No offense.
