Big Brother Naija winner Phyna has demanded an apology from self-acclaimed relationship expert and socialite Blessing Okoro aka Blessing CEO for saying many Benin women are prostitutes, a statement many have described as “insensitive.”
Blessing CEO made the statement in an Instagram live video on Thursday.
“It’s very rare before you see a very decent girl wey mama train, once you are 14 or 16 years in Benin your mama don send go Libya go start ashawo for Benin wetin dem carry know Benin people na ashawo, I am not lying that is the truth. If you go to Italy, Europe na Benin full there,” she said in parts.
Reacting to her statement on Friday, Phyna who hails from Edo State blasted Blessing CEO and demanded an apology for her statement.
She wrote on X: “Blessingceo nor say make you nor talk oh or chase your clout as usual but take God beg nor think say you get gbana for head con carry am play come Benin people side… how you go open your yeye mouth say all women for Benin na Ashawo!!!
“Say no responsible mama, Omo e be like say you don match line o where you think say your madness stop na there another person own start…Abi you smoke wrong blunt? Wetin dy work you.”
Her response was however met with criticism as X user dug up a statement Phyna made in October saying that all women have committed abortion.
Defending herself, the reality star said Blessing must apologise for her statement: “Key words to the hypocrites crying in my comment section.
“She said there’s no Responsible mother in Benin…. That’s her also calling my mom and all other moms irresponsible in my Tribe.
“She said all the women including mothers are ashawo and can rarely raise a child responsibly hereby calling almost all Edo/Benin borns irresponsible.
“BLESSING CEO don match line and she has to apologise ASAP Hypocrites keep crying.”
