“I Don’t Want To Die In Silence” – BBNAIJA Phyna’s Father Seek For Public Support
Months after Phyna was declared the winner of BBNaija ‘Level Up’ edition, with the grand prize of #100 million, her father mr. Felix Otabor, who is a professional hearse driver, in a recent statement cried out for help from the public.
He alleged that her daughter deceived him to sell his old cars or she will give it out when she visits home. So he decided to sell it out as scraps, then use the money to renovate his house.
He further revealed that he stopped working after he sold his cars. He was the vice chairman of their association, but was replaced when he stopped working.
In his words;
“I haven’t seen Phyna, my daughter, since she won BBNaija ‘Level Up’ edition last year. She hasn’t returned home since then. I don’t know why?”
“I am a professional hearse driver, and when she won the reality TV show, she asked me to do away with all my old cars, promising to change my life.”
“But since then, I haven’t seen her. And I don’t have a car anymore. Once in a while, the Vice-Chairman of our association will allow me to drive his car.”
“I sold all my four cars because at the time, my daughter won the show. I thought that God had finally answered our prayers. I called her on the telephone, and she said God has blessed us.”
“She asked me to do away with all my old cars, or she would give them out to someone, any day she returned. So, instead of allowing her to give my cars to scavengers, I decided to sell them as scraps and used the proceeds to renovate my house.”
“And that was the beginning of my suffering. I stopped doing my business because I had no car again. And my neighbors thought I was either stingy or pretending as if my daughter had just won a N100 million grand prize.”
“I was the Vice-Chairman of our association, but when I couldn’t show up at our station for some time, they replaced me with another person.
“From that moment, things started getting tough for me. I am even looking for somebody who will give me a car on hire purchase. I need help; it has come to that point. I don’t want to die in silence.”
“I only see her on Facebook or Instagram whenever she shares new photos on these platforms,” he stated.
Recall that in 2022, during the grand finale of the Tv reality show, Phyna’s family visited the show arena to show support for their daughter.
