Former Big Brother Naija reality show winner, Josephina Itabor, aka Phyna, has recounted how her estranged Muslim lover’s family rejected her despite her willingness to convert to Islam.
Phyna said though she is a Catholic, she was practicing Islam then because of her Muslim lover but his family insisted he must not marry her.
Speaking in a recent interview with media personality, Hero Daniels, the reality star said she eventually left the relationship after her ex-lover’s sisters and mother threatened to throw her out.
She said she found out that she was pregnant after exiting the relationship and informed her ex-lover but he told her that it was her “business.”
She said she aborted the pregnancy because the “embarrassment was too much” and her future ambition.
“I left, I went back home and found out I was pregnant. I called him and he said that’s my business,” Phyna recalled.
“I would have loved to keep the child but the embarrassment was too much. Not even one person in the family wanted a Christian and I felt I had a bright future and I knew it was going to draw me back so I was left to make the hardest choice ever.”
