Big Brother Naija Season 7 winner, Ijeoma Josephina Otabor, popularly known as Phyna, has expressed her desire to return to her old life free from the burden of fame.
The reality TV star’s recent struggles with alleged death threats contributed to her longing for a simpler existence.
Phyna, who emerged as the winner of the popular reality show, has been subjected to hate messages from social media trolls.
One of the most concerning threats Phyna received came from an Instagram account with no followers and a single post. The message expressed deep hatred for the reality star, and included a number of disturbing wishes, including the hope that she would drop dead.
Phyna shared a GIF where she held her phone with the words on the screen reading: “I just wish you slump and die. You’re doing more than yourself, Madam Manage me beggar of love.
”I just wish everything you have now goes down the drain.
”I just hate hearing or seeing anything about you. Useless weena. Restless weena”.
In response to these threats, she apologised that everyone who may have been angered by her success has now led them to hating her.
Phyna urged her haters to desist from their harmful actions so that they and their loved ones can have the opportunity to shine.
The 25-year-old actress also wished she could return to her life before stardom.
She wrote: “At this point, I want my old life back. At this point everybody who doesn’t like me wins, and I’m sorry you don’t like me.
“I hereby say I will no longer do too much and I will take a break to allow you and those you like to shine, just stop the death threats already but using fake accounts?” (Sic)
