Reality TV star Phyna has admitted that she is not embarrassed by sharing her abortion-related secrets.
Remember how Phyna and a die-hard Beauty Tukura fan argued on Twitter a few days ago? A subtle poke at Phyna was made by the troll when she referred to Beauty as a “mother” in the comment section of Phyna.
Although Phyna admitted to having two abortions, she said she does not go about sleeping with sugar daddies or force young men to sleep with her as their “favorite” does.
In an interview with the PUNCH, Phyna stated that she is not ashamed of her past when discussing her altercation with the troll.
Phyna stated her first pregnancy happened when she was 19 and that she was unable to tell her parents about it, which is why she aborted both of her pregnancies. She went on to say that her toxic relationship with her partner was the reason for her second pregnancy.
In my family as a whole, we are very open. People just read meaning to things and say whatever they want, I really do not care. I was just laughing at their responses to me because those that know me know me, I am an open book. I actually responded to that woman when she said “I can’t respond to you, you are an abortionist,” and then I said yes that I have committed abortions. It is fine how people want to see me, I am not ashamed of anything about myself. If I ever make a mistake, I own up to my mistakes.
“As for my reasons for taking abortion pills, if there are 100 women in Nigeria today, 98 have done abortions. So, no one should judge me. I was in a 12-year relationship then and I was so young. The first abortion was when I was 19; I couldn’t go home to tell my parents that I was pregnant at that age. And the two pregnancies were so early like two to three weeks that I could just use tablets. The second was when I was 24, and I had finished serving then. I was ready to keep it but the relationship was getting toxic. He abused me and always beat me up. I said to myself that I couldn’t do this anymore, so I took it out and that was how I ended the relationship.”
