Big Brother Naija ‘Level Up’ winner, Josephina Otabor better known as Phyna, has revealed that she dated a Muslim man for whom she was willing to convert to Islam.
The reality TV star said the relationship could not work because his family rejected her despite her showing readiness to convert from Christianity.
Phyna said she is a Catholic who was practicing Islam then because of her boyfriend but his family still prohibited him from marrying her.
She made this known in a recent interview on Hero’s Therapy with media personality Hero Daniels, adding that at some point her ex-lover’s sisters and mother threatened to throw her out.
The Edo-born brand ambassador said she eventually left the relationship, but found out later that she was pregnant and informed her former boyfriend but he denied responsiblity.
According to her, the man told her that it was her “business,” so she saw no other option than to abort the pregnancy because the “embarrassment was too much”.
Phyna said; “I left, I went back home and found out I was pregnant. I called him and he said that’s my business. Iwould have loved to keep the child but the embarrassment was too much.
“Not even one person in the family wanted a Christian and I felt I had a bright future and I knew it was going to draw me back, so I was left to make the hardest choice ever.”
