Blessing CEO who hails from Ebonyi State had asserted that most mothers in in Benin are irresponsible and only care about making their daughters sell their bodies for money.
Blessing CEO made the statement in an Instagram live video on Thursday. She said in part: “It’s very rare before you see a very decent girl wey mama train, once you are 14 or 16 years in Benin your mama don send you go Libya go start ashawo for Benin. wetin dem carry know Benin people na ashawo, I am not lying that is the truth. If you go to Italy, Europe na Benin full there.”
Reacting to her statement moments ago, Phyna who hails from Edo reacted to this blasted her for tagging all Benin mothers as irresponsible. She warned her to be careful of what she uses to chase her clout.
She wrote on X: “Blessingceo I nor say make you nor talk oh or chase your clout as usual but I take God beg nor think say you get gbana for head con carry am play come Benin people side… how you go open your yeye mouth say all women for Benin na Ash@wo!!!.
“Say no responsible mama, Omo e be like say you don match line o where you think say your madness stop na there another person own start…Abi you smoke wrong blunt? Wetin dy work you.”
Her response was however met with criticism as X users dug up a statement Phyna made in October saying that all women have committed abortion.
Defending herself, the reality star said Blessing must apologise for her statement.
She added: “Key words to the hypocrites crying in my comment section. She said there’s no Responsible mother in Benin…. That’s her also calling my mom and all other moms irresponsible in my Tribe.
“She said all the women including mothers are ashawo and can rarely raise a child responsibly hereby calling almost all Edo/Benin borns irresponsible. BLESSING CEO don match line and she has to apologise ASAP. Hypocrites keep crying.”

timidakolo: A very disrespectful statement to a whole tribe. How can someone boldly make such statement without thinking for a second , I shouldn’t be coughing such rubbish.
genette_boughie: Dear Blessing ceo , I’m from Edo State, Benin, My name Adesuwa J Obayuwana. My mother never sent her daughters out to prost!tut!on; instead, she raised them all to be graduates and Ph.D. holders, with three of us being medical doctors and the other three being chemists. Please take your stupid stereotype back to your town. When I get to Benin on Sunday, I’ll do you a favour and film every one of your Igbo sisters—especially those in Ihama Akionbare. Thank you.
teeto__olayeni: Phyna I like how you defend your state, but remember same you said “every woman has done abortion” So now talk no really sweet for your mouth abeg.
okihcizam: Omooooo.. As an Igbo man that was born and raised in Edo state, I find this very disturbing and disrespectful.
mademoiselle__marigold: But she didn’t mention phyna name,why is she inserting herself?always available to trend for wrong reasons.
nazonnadi_: We can’t take the same things we dish out, Phyna said every woman has done an abortion… Blessing said almost all girls from Phyna’s place dey do Ashawo. Energy matches energy. I spent most of my early years in the Corporate World in Benin, and I can say Blessing is a bit right based on what I saw some Moms and their teenage daughters doing, but there are some decent girls there too. Generalization is not the answer.
