It continued, “It is with dismay that we observe that, even two (2) years after ‘Phyna’ was crowned as the Winner of the season, you have failed to live up to your obligation to provide her with the outstanding item from her winnings – 1 BTC, which was widely publicized by you as part of the gifts due to the Winner of the season.”

The legal representatives highlighted a previous meeting where Multichoice officials acknowledged the outstanding prize but offered to pay the equivalent in Naira, which Phyna rejected. They insisted on the payment of the promised 1 BTC.

In a recent social media post, Phyna called out Multichoice over their announcement about the start of the 2024 BBNaija show.
