“At age 3, I was already working in a restaurant and serving men” –BBNaija Phyna as she recount her life growing up [Video]
Phyna, a participant on a reality show, recently shared that she began her employment journey at the tender age of three by working at a restaurant.
She explained that during that time, she was staying with her aunt, who owned a restaurant, and it became her first job.
Phyna recounted being taken by her father to reside with her older sister in Auchi when she was three years old due to her father’s unfortunate accident.
As a result, she had to temporarily pause her education at the Junior Secondary School level to assist her aunt in managing the restaurant.
She made this disclosure while appearing on the most recent episode of The Nancy Isime Show with her colleague, Hermes.
Phyna said, “Growing up for me wasn’t easy. I grew up with my aunt, my dad’s elder sister in Auchi. And my aunt sells food, it’s a restaurant.
“Now, imagine a young girl at a restaurant at a very tender age. At 3, I was already in a restaurant serving men. And there is a point my dad had an accident, they needed somebody to be with him at the hospital. I think I just finished my JSS3 then and I had to go with Dad from one hospital to another. That caused me to SS1 and 2.
“On coming back [to school], they said I should go back to SS1 but I was like, no, I will join my mates in SS3. They gave me a series of exams, I wrote, and I passed. Then my parents felt like I needed to go and learn handwork because furthering [my education] is highly impossible. So, that was when I realized, dem don born me, it’s time to hustle.”
