BBNaija Star, Khafi and her family members have been thrown into mourning after her younger brother identified as Alexander Kareem was reportedly shot dead in the UK.

Condolences have been pouring in on social media following the reported death of Alexander Kareem, the younger brother of Big Brother Naija alumni, Khafi Kareem.

Khafi posted a black photo with the caption 00:40 and a heartbreak emoji. She also spoke a bit about the news on her daily #KhafiPrays on YouTube. She said she isn’t ready to talk about it, but wants everyone to please remember her family in prayers.


The 20-year-old man shot dead in West London, close to his family home in Shepherd’s Bush. Alexander died after suffering gunshot wounds to his chest and abdomen. According to detectives, a white Range Rover Evoque linked to the murder was later found burnt out three miles away. The police said they were yet to make any arrests.

He was walking home along Askew Road after a trip to a convenience store when someone opened fire on him. Khafi was in mourning last night with relatives.

A friend told The Sun:

“His family is distraught. Alex wouldn’t talk down to anyone – he was friends with everybody.

“They are all good people. His sister Khafi spreads positivity through her YouTube account. She wakes up and prays for people at 7.30 every morning.

“Alex’s brother is trying to get back from Australia to grieve with the rest of his family, his mum is completely devastated.”

Dozens of colourful bouquets had been left near the scene of shooting yesterday along with a bottle of brandy and a crucifix.

Our condolences to her and the family in this difficult time💗
