Phyna Speaks Out Against Show’s Toxicity

Phyna, the winner of the seventh season of the popular Nigerian reality TV show Big Brother Naija, has recently made a statement about the show being toxic, sparking a discussion online.

In a video posted on her social media page, Phyna did not provide a reason for her comment, but many speculate that it is due to excessive criticism and negative comments she received from non-supporters.


Despite her fame and success, Phyna has faced criticism and backlash from some members of the public who have accused her of being fake and lacking talent, leading to negative comments and trolling on her social media pages.

Phyna’s statement about the toxicity of the show has generated mixed reactions online, with some praising her for speaking out against the negative aspects of the reality TV industry, while others have criticized her for biting the hand that fed her, since the show is credited with launching her career.


The TV star won the keenly-contested show in 2022 and has since been actively involved in the entertainment industry, building a large following on social media.

Despite the backlash she has received, Phyna continues to use her platform to speak out against toxic behavior and promote positivity in the industry.

Phyna’s statement has reignited the debate about the impact of reality TV on the mental health of participants and the wider audience.


Several past contestants of Big Brother Naija have spoken out about the toll the show takes on their mental health, with some revealing they have had to seek therapy to deal with the aftermath of the experience.

Despite this, the reality TV industry remains immensely popular, with millions of viewers tuning in to watch the drama unfold on shows like Big Brother Naija, Love Island, and The Bachelor.


The question remains: is the entertainment worth the toll it takes on the mental health of those involved?

Phyna’s statement may have sparked a conversation, but it is unlikely to change the popularity of the reality TV genre anytime soon.


As for Phyna herself, it remains to be seen whether her comments will have any impact on her career or her relationship with the show that made her a star.

But one thing is for sure, her words have highlighted the need for a discussion about the impact of reality TV on mental health and the responsibility of the industry to ensure the well-being of its participants.
