Big Brother Naija ‘Level Up’ winner Ijeoma Otabor, also known as Phyna, has sparked debate with her remarks on abortion.
Phyna brazenly declared during an interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo that no woman hasn’t had one or two abortions.
She made this clear when she talked about having an abortion when she was younger. Phyna stated she never gave an abortion-related interview.
Her revelation about having an abortion was made while she was in the BBN house speaking with other housemates, according to her.
“When I came out of the Big Brother house everybody wanted to chase clout with fame. Everybody wanted to do shit. When I was in the house, there was a conversation and everyone was talking. Before I come out to that, the issue of abortion na who talk him 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 seriously. 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 going on. I didn’t have that interview. It was what the person watched on television”.
