“This one go sweet chichi.”


“A journalist called to hear your own side of the story before going ahead to publish, but you ignored him. What do you expect? He went ahead and published the story as he was told by your own father. The text exchange between the both of you is enough evidence that he did his due diligence as a journalist to reach out before putting out the story. Please don’t waste your money on any lawyer.”


“She is just an educated illiterate. Look at who y'all voted for to win such huge amount of money. That's how journalism works in any part of the world. Vanguard is a reputable media organization that reports facts. It is not a blog or an online platform without office that scribble anything for clicks. They have more than enough readers worldwide. After hearing from her father, the reporter was trying to balance the story to hear her part but because it is the truth, she was ashamed and couldn't defend herself and now she's pretentiously throwing tantrums here. Did you or did you not abandon your parents after winning the grand prize?”

“Nigerians always patiently waiting for any bad news to believe so they can hide their own sorry lives and shame you.”


“You run commot for house Abi you no run. The fact you didn’t even debunk the allegations. go and help your family oo cos one of the reasons we voted you was because of your poor background so you will leave the ghetto so help your family if nah to fight your imaginary enemies you go type from morning till night Toor.”


“The journalist may have even interviewed her dad before calling her. In all of phyna’s outburst, she didn’t address the crux of the matter. You abandon your family Abi you no abandon them?

Saying the journalist contacted you to start bombarding you with questions and later sent a message to apologize even further agrees with what the journalist said.”
