Winner of Big Brother’s seventh season Phyna, also known as Josephine Otabor, has explained why she had two babies aborted.

On December 6, 2022, the reality star acknowledged having terminated two babies in a Twitter exchange.

Since then, many people have questioned what may have influenced her choice.

Phyna clarified her choice in an exclusive interview with Punch, assuaging many people’s questions.

She cited her advanced age and the relationship she was in as the primary factors in her choice.

In her words, “if there are 100 women in Nigeria today, 98 have done abortions. So, no one should judge me. I was in a 12-year relationship then and I was so young. The first abortion was when I was 19; I couldn’t go home to tell my parents that I was pregnant at that age. And the two pregnancies were so early like two to three weeks that I could just use tablets. The second was when I was 24, and I had finished serving then. I was ready to keep it but the relationship was getting toxic. He abused me and always beat me up. I said to myself that I couldn’t do this anymore, so I took it out and that was how I ended the relationship.”

Phyna said that she would not make similar choices now if she were in that situation because she is now able to care for a child.

“The way I am now, I have money to take care of 10 children. In fact, if my parents were rich at the time of my first pregnancy, I wouldn’t have aborted it. But because I knew I was from a very poor background, we used to eat once a day then, especially in the afternoon and then carry it till the next day. So, keeping the baby then, was no option for me.”

Phyna is a popular reality TV personality, hype woman, actress, and model from Nigeria. She is on the seventh season of Big Brother Naija’s winner.
