Nigerian reality star, Ijeoma Josephina Otabor aka Phyna has tendered an apology to her fans.
The Season 7 winner of Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) show issued a public apology for her inappropriate behaviour in a video she shared on her verified Instagram page on Monday.
This comes after she congratulated Khosi Twala, the latest winner of the BBTitans reality TV show, saying, “It’s women’s season.”
She acknowledged in the video that dealing with the prize money she won (N50 million) and the fame that came with it is a new adventure for her because she comes from a different background.
Phyna said, “Hi everyone, It’s been six months now since I won the show BBNaija Season 7 and for the past six months, a lot has gone down, and a lot has gone up. Many things has happened.
“I want to use this medium to say that I am really sorry if I have offended a lot of people for the past six months. I wish to let you know that I have gone through a lot of training on how to be now.
“Because I believe you should all understand that someone with a background like mine, bagging a lot of money and fame all of a sudden, will need time.
Even when you go for job interviews, they will ask you how many years of experience you have. You need to have the experience to get that job. So trust me, I will now say I have six months of experience in fame. Now I know how it works and I know how I’m supposed to behave.
So I’m sorry to everybody that felt offended by my loudness or how I talk. I can’t wait to share what the remaining six months and many more months and years has to show. I look forward to working with all of you in a better light. (Kisses) Thank you
