Big Brother Naija ‘Level Up' winner, Ijeoma Otabor popularly known as Phyna has left many talking with her statement about abortion.
She made this known as she opened up about having an abortion at a younger age. Phyna claimed that she never gave any interview talking about abortion.
According to her, the statement of her having an abortion was said while she was in the BBN house conversing with other housemates.
“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”.
Why I had two abortions at 19, 24” Phyna opens up
Kemi Filani reported early this year that Phyna in an interview with Punch Newspaper, opened up on her abortions.
The Edo-State star had earlier admitted to committing abortion while arguing with a troll of her rival.
In the interview, Phyna revealed why she got rid of her pregnancies at ages 19 and 24. According to her, during the first pregnancy, she was still young and coming from a poor background, she couldn't afford to raise a child. On her second abortion, she had to take the baby out because she was in a toxic relationship.
