Reno Omokri, a former media aide to the president, has criticized Phyna, a contestant on the reality show Big Brother Naija ‘Level Up’, regarding her family issues.
In a post on his Instagram page, the controversial author mentioned how he was insulted when he stated that some individuals would go to the extent of selling their father for money.
He indirectly criticized the reality star for not answering her father’s phone calls after winning the show.
Reno suggested that Phyna should have shared the N100 million she won from the show with her parents, as is customary in some cultures, seeking their blessings.
Reno revealed that he did not give his first salary to any pastor or invest it in any scheme. Instead, he shared 10% of his salary with his family members.
Since then, he has not been pursuing money; rather, money has been pursuing him.
“When I said some people can sell their own father for money, you guys insulted me. Now someone has won money and suddenly stopped picking up the father’s phone calls. In other cultures, as soon as you win that money, you will take it to your father and mother, kneel or prostrate before them, and then present it to them for their blessings. My first salary was not paid to any pastor or sown into any church. Tufiakwa! I took it to my father. He accepted everything. Then he took 10% out of it and returned the balance 90% to me, then shared that 10% to EVERY member of my family and asked them to pray for me. Since that day, I have not been chasing money. Money has been chasing me”.
