Phyna speaks about her verbal fight with Chichi
Ijeoma Josephina Otabor, also known as Phyna, the BBNaija level-up champion, has finally addressed her disagreement with her co-star, Chichi, at their reunion episode.
Phyna said during the reunion, in a fit of rage, that Chichi is a married mother of two who abandoned her children in Benin.
Phyna continued on social media after the show aired, claiming that Chichi paid N3.5 million for liposuction and allegedly poisoned a friend in Cyprus out of envy before returning to Nigeria. This did not sit well with Chichi, so she filed a lawsuit against Phyna, demanding N100 million for damages and a public apology.
Phyna stated in a recent interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo that her reaction to Chichi was not spontaneous.
She claimed that she replied to Chichi’s nasty statements about her, which were not broadcast by BBNaija organizers.
Chichi, she alleged, body-shamed her, labeled her an “abortionist,” and made other disparaging remarks about her. She refused to let Chichi bodyshame her because she has a natural body.
Concerning the N100 million lawsuit, Phyna added that she was unafraid of the threat and was prepared to go to court.
