“I feel guilty that I am still alive…” – Khafi remembers her late brother Alex

Published

Former Big Brother Naija housemate, Khafi Kareem has stated that she always feels guilty that she still alive while her brother is dead.

Recall that on June 8,  Alexander Kareem, the younger brother of reality TV star Khafi Kareem was shot dead in London after midnight in an alleged case of mistaken identity.

Taking to her Instagram page, Khafi said that she knows that her brother’s killers are still out there walking freely among the living.

She said:

“Happy birthday Alex. The past few weeks in the run up to today I have been incredibly sad and have felt consistently horrible, but I have tried to mask it as best as I can.

Birthdays have been very difficult for me to celebrate since you left. Both my own and those of others because everyday I feel so guilty that I am still alive but you are not. I can’t lie, it hurts. It hurts a lot.

Today I should be seeing you smile like you are in this video, I should be hearing you tell us not to make a fuss over your birthday like every year but instead I can’t see you, hear your voice or play with your hair.

I think about you every single day and still spend most days in disbelief that you are really gone. But today has made me realise how final it is that you will never grow older, you will never age past 20 and that even though today is your birthday you won’t get to celebrate it with us anymore, as your death came prematurely and none of us were there to stop it. We would have if we could.

To the people that have inflicted this pain on me, my family and everyone who knew you, I just pray that they will realise the irreparable hurt they have caused and come forward themselves with the truth so that justice can be served. It is so hard to heal knowing that your killers are still out there walking freely among the living.

I will try to keep on living through the pain, some days I can smile, whereas other days the grief is so heavy I can barely move or function. I just want to scream, block the world out and give anything to be where you are. But I know we are still here for a reason, and my only hope is to continuously make you proud and walk in purpose until I am able to see you again, so help me God. Happy Birthday Alex. I love you so much and I’m so so sorry this happened to you. “

“Being rich is not the birthright of men alone” – Linda Ikeji to ladies

Linda Ikeji speaks on definition of success

Nigerian celebrity blogger, Linda Ikeji, has advised ladies, saying being rich is not the birthright of men alone.

On Thursday afternoon, she shared her definition of success as a woman on her Instagram page and shared how she believed women should view themselves.

Linda Ikeji wrote, “Dear young lady, I hear you! If that’s how you see life and want to live life, it’s your choice! To each his own. As for me, I’d rather be as rich as those men who must pay me for being beautiful. Being rich is not the birthright of men alone. I’d rather be their contemporary than waiting for their handouts.

I know many believe it’s a man’s world; maybe it is, but with fearlessness, strength, determination, and grace, women can dominate and thrive in it. So, instead of waiting for men’s charity, I’d rather start early to fight for my dreams, build my business(es), break boundaries, and if God allows, shatter tables.

I want to get to a point in my life where I can get myself anything I want that money can buy without having to beg or sleep with any man to get it. I want to go into a store, see a $60k Cartier watch that I love, and pay for it, instead of wondering which man I’ll call and plotting all the things I will say and do to get him to buy it for me.

I know that my greatest superpower as a woman is being financially independent, as this will give me the choice to live life on my own terms, date or marry whoever my heart wants and walk away when it no longer serves me, instead of being forced to stick with a man I can no longer stand because I can’t stand on my own.

I want when a man comes into my life, no matter how rich he is, for his money to be a bonus and not my only source of livelihood. And as he gives to me, which I will happily collect, I will give to him in return.

I want to dress as sexy as I like and enter any place without a man walking up to me and asking how much it will cost to take me home for the night because he knows who the F I is… a boss babe with her own business as rich as he is.. or maybe even richer! .

Seriously, I’d rather, if God forbid I end up with a deadbeat, be able to give my child(ren) the absolute best life without having to be at the mercy of a scornful & bitter ex.

With all humility, I refuse for the quality of my life to be dependent on the benevolence of men. I want the protection, power, and security that comes with having my own money. But like I said in the beginning, that’s just me! To each his own!.”
