Winner of the Big Brother Naija ‘Level-Up’ edition, Josephina Ijeoma Otabor, popularly known as Phyna, has debunked rumours of dating 17-year-old singer, Khaid.
Phyna was heavily criticized as netizens reference the age difference between her and the singer.
However, speaking in the latest episode of her Spill With Phyna podcast, Phyna lamented the hypocrisy of society, questioning the disparity between men and women when it comes to choosing younger partners.
She said, “Me and this boy take picture; Khaid. He is young and the picture, I posted it. He posted it as well. Omo, if you see the dragging, ‘Oh Phyna, is this boy you’re dating now?’, ‘Oh Phyna is 30-year-old, this boy is 10 years old.’
“It was so terrible that I was now wondering that in this country, we have ladies who are married to way older men. So, I want to know the difference between being a younger man and being a younger girl. Why can’t we have the same balance, I thought they said age is just a number?”
