Big Brother Naija season seven winner, Ijeoma Josephina Otabor, popularly called Phyna, has caused a stir online with her statement about abortion.
Nigerian women who reacted to her comment, warned her to stop dragging them into her mess.
In a recent interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo, the reality show star stated that there is no woman who has not had one or two abortions.
Phyna said this while clearing the air about her abortion.
According to her, she never revealed her abortion during any interview but during the Big Brother show.
“When I was in the house, there was a conversation, and everyone was talking. Before I come to that, the issue of abortion…na who talk hin own dem know right?
“There’s no woman that will tell me she has not done it once or twice, do you get? Now, I didn’t give that interview to these people. It was a conversation in the house, and I wasn’t the only one that said things. People said whatever. I don’t know what we were doing that day that we said it. So, I had already said it on television. Now the interview was on (the) phone after I left the house.
“I was surprised I saw it when the news was published. I told my manager, and we wanted to take it serious. Everybody was like you know how people will talk and you just came out. Brand building. You don’t want to tarnish (your image). See, when I came out of the house I went through a whole lot. A whole lot was just going on. I didn’t have that interview. It was what the person watched on television,” Phyna said.
