Josephine Otabor, also known as Phyna, emerged winner of the seventh season of Big Brother Naija after polling a total of 40.74% of the votes in the final week.
The native of Edo State beat 23 other housemates to clinch the prize after an intensely competitive 72 days and with her triumph, this is the second time a female housemate is walking away as the best.
Phyna walked away with 100Million Naira worth of prizes that included a 50 million cash gift, a brand new Innoson G5T from Innoson Motors, one bitcoin from Quidax, a Dubai trip for two courtesy TravelBeta, a brand new Camon 19 from Tecno, and electronics from Nexus among other goodies.
Bryann was the first runner-up with 26.74% of the votes. Bella came in third place after polling 15.78% of the votes. Others in the top six include Adekunle, who gathered 12.36% of the votes and came in fourth, Chi who came fifth with 2.49%, and Daniella finished sixth with 1.89%.
Phyna joins Whitemoney, Laycon, Mercy, Miracle, Efe, and Katung in the highly coveted list of BBNaija winners. Like the previous winners, Phyna will no doubt leverage the opportunity the BBNaija platform is offering for her career.
She is a Nigerian actress, hype woman, and singer from Edo state. Aged 25 years, she is single and believes she is a born entertainer. She describes herself as “allergic to malice”.
The seventh edition of the BBNaija franchise will go down in history as the most successful iteration yet, having recorded over a billion votes, over 40,000 auditions, and broken social media engagement records. The innovative changes to the show and twists that occurred from the beginning helped keep things exciting. It also had viewers on their toes and constantly trying to figure out Big Brother’s next move. The success of this edition is particularly remarkable, considering fans didn’t have the usual SMS voting platforms to vote with this year.
The grand finale saw performances from Nigerian superstars M.I Abaga, Falz, and Pheelz. A highlight of the night was a surprise diary session with Ebuka and Biggie. His session was followed shortly by a performance from M.I.
Following Daniella’s and Chi Chi’s eviction, Falz thrilled the audience with his hit song, Bop Daddy and Highway. Pheelz closed the night of performances with his award-winning songs Finesse and Electricity.
