2019 BBNaija star, Khafi Kareem, has taken to social media to speak out on the influence of BBNaija and how not all ex-housemates promote positive values.
A Twitter user identified as @Imoteda, took to the platform to question why BBNaija show only appealed to the most ‘rabid and debased people’.
Khafi, however, did not agree with her. According to the former British police officer, people from different works of life actually love the show and connect with housemates that remind them of themselves.
“No love, I disagree. BBN appeals to people from all walks of life. It appeals to people with empathy, people who are passionate and people who are intirgued by life around them. We watch and find someone or people who remind us of parts of ourselves and decide to love them,” she wrote.
She went on to state that although it has changed the lives of many people including herself, not all products of BBNaija stardom are positive as some use the love of fans to hate on others.
She wrote: “It fosters community. Not all representatives of it are positive & some use the love for one as reason to hate another, but that does not write off the community as a whole. Far from rabid, their energy is powerful & lives have been changed as a result. Mine is one of them.”
It has been several months after the end of the 2019 season of the highly coveted reality show, Big Brother Naija (BBNaija), yet some participants have not been able to move past some of the experiences they had in the house, especially with fellow housemates.
