2019 Big Brother Naija housemate Khafi Kareem and her family members shed tears as they laid to rest the youngest member of the family.
Khafi lost her younger brother Alexander Kareem, after he was shot dead on a street in West London on June 8.
According to Police, Alexander Kareem, 20, was killed as he left a convenience store in a case of mistaken identity shortly after 12.30am.
The family begged the public not to view his death as “just another black boy who’s been shot”.
During the funeral service which took place on Thursday, July 29, the bubbly young lady rendered a touching tribute in honour of her deceased brother.
“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. Alex’s life mattered, he had a future ahead of him, he’s not just another black boy. He had a family, he had friends, this is real”, she said
“I am begging whoever knows anything please find it in your heart to come forward. I feel bad that we’ve had to bury Alex and his killers are still not found, can he really rest in peace when his killers are roaming around?”, she quizzed.
The funeral service at the Church of the Holy Ghost and St Stephen in Shepherd’s Bush on Wednesday, July 29, had about 30 people in attendance.
