Big Brother Naija season 7 housemate, Ijeoma Otabor popularly known as Phyna was crowned the winner of Big Brother Naija Level Up. She won the grand prize of N50 million in cash and a further N50 million worth of prizes from sponsors.
In a sit down with TVC’s Reality Check, Phyna revealed that she has still not received her N50 million cash prize amidst acquiring a new luxury mansion.
During the interview, Phyna was asked if she has spent her 50 million naira and she responded,
“No, I’ve not even touched it. I’ve not even seen it sef with my eye. There were other miscellaneous.”
Then when they queried her acquisition of a new mansion, she responded,
“That’s why they call me unusual na, I don’t understand. People are saying I’ve finished my N50 million, I’ve not even touched it.
I’ve always said to myself that anytime I make it in life, first thing I’ll do is get a house. Instead of me to go and buy a car, or to go and be doing vacation, I’ve always said – according to my father, my father would always say “woman dey buy house, woman dey buy land, woman dey build am”. My dad would be like “forget say you go marry go husband house o, but they no dey forbid say woman get land or woman get house.” So it has been like number one to do for me. So after that one na, every other thing can be added unto it”.
It’s interesting that till now, Phyna still hasn’t received the money which we all thought was given to them sometime around the same week of people winning.
