Khafi Kareem, recently evicted housemate of the ongoing Big Brother Naija (BBNaija), says she loves Gedoni Ekpata, her colleague, and felt so much peace around him while in the reality show.


She said this in her first major interview with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, the host, following her exit from the show.

Khafi, who spoke on the intensity of her relationship with Gedoni, reiterated that they never had sex in the house.

“I felt such peace around him. I didn’t think I couldn’t be myself around him,” she said.


“We did not have sex. You know sex is a natural thing. If I did, I would actually say that’s what happened.

“I wouldn’t want to be given the penalisation or punishments for things I didn’t do.

“I just feel like in the house, everything is so intense so where you will get to in a relationship over three months seeing somebody and been on a date with them is like a week in the house.


“The intensity seeing everybody when you wake up and when you go to sleep. I think it was after the eviction in the first week, after we were almost up that’s when our bond really grew.”

The bubbling personality also revealed plans to host a Nigerian tourism show as part of her post-BBNaija plans.

When asked if she would fully concentrate on acting, Khafi said, “I love acting, I feel like it will be a given. I can do that with my eyes closed.

“I definitely want to do presenting. I would like to have a travel show where I showcase different states in nigeria and just do some tourism stuff,” she said.


Ebuka also asked Khafi how she maintained her bubbly demeanor when her eviction was announced. She noted that she felt grateful for the experience.

“I felt grateful. When my name was called, I would have been grateful to stay in the house,” she said.

“When I was leaving, I was like it had been an amazing last week in the house and I felt grateful and now I can begin the rest of my life.”

On her relationship with fellow housemate Tacha, Khafi also described her relationship with Tacha as genuine, adding that they were naturally pulled towards each other.


“Interestingly I want to be friends with the person I think has no friends or who felt alone,” she said.

“I also felt alone in the house when I first came. We just gravitated to each other and we have been cool since the first week.”

The police officer also noted that Ike Oyeama, who nominated her for eviction, was playing the best game in the house.

Following Khafi’s eviction, there are ten housemates left to compete for the Grand prize worth N60 million.
