Phyna, the 2022 Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) winner, says Shallipopi, the Nigerian singer, is her ideal kind of man.


The reality TV star and the singer have both garnered attention for their controversial personas since rising to prominence.

During a recent live session on TikTok, Phyna said she wants a partner that matches her energy and embodies Shallipopi’s vibe.

She said she used to prefer a quiet man, but her preferences have changed due to her past relationship, where her ex’s family was overly involved in his life.


She added that she would rather marry an Edo or Yoruba man.

“I want to marry a lively person like me, someone that you would not easily know that we are husband and wife. I want to marry someone that is my spec, someone that we are alike. Someone who has a Shallipopi vibe,” she said.

“Everyone has their choice, I do not want a quiet man. Before I wanted a quiet man but I changed my mind. I want to marry someone that is like me.


“I would have liked an Igbo man, but the last Igbo man I was with… Igbo men, I feel like their families are too involved in their business. I think I would rather go for an Edo man or Yoruba man. I like Yoruba, I have always wanted to get married to a Yoruba man.”

Phyna was previously in a relationship with Olisaemeka ‘Groovy’ Orakwue, a colleague on BBNaija.

The pair parted ways after the end of the ‘Level Up’ season.

Since leaving BBNaija, Phyna has evolved to be an actress and model.


She has been featured in several movies, including ‘Unholy Saint,’ ‘Osato,’ and ‘Shattered Innocence’.
