Big Brother Naija reality show star and actress, Josephina Otabor, popularly known as Phyna, has revealed that she stopped attending church because of some of the Pope’s reforms, which didn’t sit well with her.

Speaking in the latest episode of her podcast, Spill With Phyna, the reality star explained that she was a staunch Catholic growing up but no longer goes to church due to the Pope’s reform of some Catholic doctrines.

She particularly frowned at the Pope’s recent approval for Catholic priests to “bless” same-sex marriage.
