Mr. Felix Otabor, the father of Phyna, the winner of the 2022 BBNaija ‘Level Up’ edition, recently disclosed that his daughter has been missing since her victory.
He stated that he hadn’t seen Phyna since she won the grand prize of N100 million in the reality TV show.
According to him, Phyna asked him to sell all his old cars and promised to change his life with her winnings, but she hasn’t returned home, and he hasn’t received any financial assistance from her.
As a result, Mr. Otabor sold his cars and used the proceeds to renovate his house. He expressed his need for help, as he’s struggling and looking for someone who can provide him with a car on hire purchase.
He mentioned that he only sees his daughter on Facebook or Instagram when she shares new photos.
His statement: “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 said.
