Phyna slams troll who dragged her for not being a mother

Legit.ng earlier reported that Phyna got into an ugly online exchange with a Twitter troll who called her an abortionist.

Phyna reacted to the calling out by revealing that she's aborted twice, and that's because she didn't want to force a young guy who wasn't ready for a child's responsibility to take up such.

The hype priestess also noted that even though she doesn't have a child now, she isn't barren because of drug abuse.
