Big Brother Naija Season 7 winner , Josephine Otabor, popularly known as Phyna, has responded to Davido’s recent denial of knowing her. The situation unfolded after Phyna accused Davido of harboring ill feelings toward her, stemming from his apparent endorsement of a tweet criticizing her.
The tweet in question, posted by a user with the handle @47kasz, questioned the choice of celebrities to support and implied that those supporting Phyna were making a poor decision. Davido’s reaction to this tweet quickly gained attention on social media.
Phyna, in response, expressed her feelings via her own social media platform, lamenting the perceived animosity from Davido. She wrote, “Wetin I do @davido? Na wah oh, The hate is real, Congratulations on your twins sha.”
Davido subsequently clarified, stating, “Thank you, love, but I honestly don’t know who you are. It was an honest mistake. No vex.”
This response from Davido generated mixed reactions, with some applauding him for addressing what they viewed as a clout-chasing move by Phyna, while others criticized him for disavowing a reality star who had won the Big Brother Naija show in 2022.
Phyna, undeterred, took to her X platform to assert her identity and faith, declaring, “God knows me. Thank you Jesus Make I sha go double my hustle,” she tweeted.
In a supportive gesture, former Big Brother Naija star, Tacha, assured Phyna that she and numerous others recognized her, regardless of Davido’s claim of not knowing her.
Tacha conveyed this message on her own X account , affirming, “I know you, Phyna. We are many who know you.”
