It is indeed a trying period for the family members of former Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) housemate, Khafi Kareem.
The BBNaija star together with her siblings and mother finally said the last goodbye to the youngest member of their family, Alexander Kareem.
Khafi lost her younger brother after he was shot dead on a street in West London on June 8.
During the funeral service which took place on Thursday, July 29, the bubbly young lady rendered a touching tribute in honor of her deceased younger brother, The Sun reports.
Khafi’s emotionally charged tribute left many sympathizers in tears. The ex-Pepper Dem housemate said she would have taken the bullet for her sibling if she had the chance to do so.
According to the same media, Khafi made it clear that the death of her sibling will not just be categorized as the death of another black boy.
“To anybody who’s seen this (in the news) and is thinking this is just another black boy who’s been shot by violence, I want to tell you that is not the case,” the 30-year-old was quoted to have said.
The aggrieved sister added that the late Alexander had a bright future ahead of him and his life mattered. Watch a video from the funeral below:
Photos from the funeral which took place at the Church of the Holy Ghost and St Stephen in Shepherd’s Bush captured heartbreaking family members as they mourned late Alexander.
