After Phyna emerged as the champion of the 2022 BBNaija ‘Level Up’ edition, her parents were overjoyed, believing that their prayers had finally been answered.
They arrived at the BBNaija grand finale venue, radiating joy and eager to celebrate with their daughter. They posed for photographs, savoring the moment with Phyna, and hoping for a brighter future. However, their hopes were in vain.
According to Vanguard reports, the very day Phyna was declared the winner of BBNaija season 7 marked the last time her parents claimed to have seen her.
She vanished without a trace immediately after receiving the prize money, never returning to support her parents as they had hoped.
Worse still, is the fact that Phyna neither calls nor answers her parents’ calls since she left the BBNaija house. Yet, she could be seen all over social media, displaying affluence, posh and class.
Speaking with the Vanguard newspaper, he said, “I haven’t seen Phyna, my daughter since she won BBNaija ‘Level Up’ edition last year. She hasn’t returned home since then. I don’t know why? I am a professional hearse driver, and when she won the reality TV show, she asked me to do away with all my old cars, promising to change my life. But since then, I haven’t seen her. And I don’t have a car again. Once in a while, the Vice-Chairman of our association will allow me to drive his own car.”
“I sold all my four cars because at the time , my daughter won the show. I thought that God had finally answered our prayers. I called her on the telephone, and she said God has blessed us. She asked me to do away with all my old cars, or she would give them out to Aboki, any day she returned. So, instead of allowing her to dash out my cars to scavengers, I decided to sell them as scraps and use the proceeds to renovate my house. And that was the beginning of my suffering.”
“I stopped doing my business because I had no car again. And my neighbours thought I was either stingy or pretending as if my daughter just won a N100 million grand prize. I was the Vice-Chairman of our association, but when I couldn’t show up at our station for some time, they replaced me with another person.”
“From that moment, things started getting tough for me.I am even looking for somebody that will give me a car on hire purchase. I need help, it has come to that point/. I don’t want to die in silence.”
