BBNaija level-up winner, Phyna has addressed those criticizing the way she speaks, acts and relates with her colleagues. The Edo-born hype priestess, who emerged winner of the seventh edition of the reality show on Sunday, October 2, has repeatedly been called out for her unguarded statements online and in interviews. Most recently, she took to Twitter to blast her haters and those that have been sending her unsolicited DMS to express their displeasure with her. Phyna in an interview also threatened to beat up a certain housemate if she does not call her fans to order. She said in part, “I go drive come your house come beat you, I don’t have time, forget celebrity, yes I am a razz girl with my full chest, don’t push me”
Following her outburst, she was heavily criticized for being uncouth and speaking without thinking about the gravity of her words. Some also claimed she is not representing the Big Brother Naija brand well and advised her to employ a social media manager to manage her accounts so that she would stop tweeting whatever comes to her mind, whether good or bad.
Reacting to the backlash, Phyna took to Twitter to slam her critics and told them to block her if they don’t like her posts. She also went Live on her social media page to state that nothing can change her personality, not even fame or stardom. According to her, she can’t be like everyone else and people should let her be her authentic self instead of expecting her to conform to a perceived standard.
