Latest entertainment gist

The Big Brother season seven winner; Josephina Otabor, who is popularly called Phyna, reveals she has never dated a rich guy even after winning the reality tv show.

Naija 102.7 FM had an interview with the star, where she emphasized that she is not moved by material wealth.

The winner of Big Brother Naija 2022 show asserted that she has never been in a relationship with a man wealthier than herself, even before gaining fame.

Furthermore, she disclosed that she outrightly turned down a male fan’s proposition of N5 million to spend the night with him, as she does not engage in “runs.”

“These were my reasons for turning down the rowdy fan’s N5m offer for sxx: Number one, I don’t do runs. I can’t date someone just because he bought me a car. I prefer to date genuinely. We will be friends.

“As a matter of fact, I have never dated a man who is richer than me. Even before I won the Big Brother Naija show, I didn’t date any rich guy. I have always been hard working even while in school. In my previous relationships, I have always been the one supporting financially. No man has really lavished money on me in a relationship.”
