Gedoni’s appointment comes weeks after Cindy Okafor, another reality TV star, was named an ambassador of the made-in-Aba project by Okezie Ikpeazu, Abia state’s governor.

It also comes just after Khafi had similarly announced her engagement to Gedoni, following the duo’s participation in the 2019 reality TV show.

Gedoni had been booted out of the season four house alongside Jackye on Day 56, as Khafi had struggled to hold the tears in.


Following the eviction, he had reassured fans that his relationship with Khafi, a UK police officer, who doubled as his love interest during the show, would live beyond TV.

“I see a future with Khafi outside the house. I don’t know how she feels but this is my thought. She is a keeper,” he had said while denying allegations that they had sex on the show.
