Regina Askia-Williams is a Nigerian-born, American-based family nurse practitioner (FNP), healthcare and educational activist, television producer, writer, and public speaker, who first found fame as an actress and model.

Askia-Williams’s acting break came in 1993, when she played gold-digger Tokunbo Johnson in Nigerian soap "Fortunes" (later "Mega Fortunes") on NTA Network, a role which earned her critical acclaim and roles in Nollywood movies. She has received several awards for her performances – including one for “Best Actress in Nigeria” by Afro Hollywood London in 2000 – and has produced several television shows and films.
