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

Alexander suffered gunshot wounds to his chest and abdomen on Askew Road in Shepherd’s Bush.

Detectives said a white Range Rover Evoque linked to the murder was later found burnt out nearby in Ealing.


The killing of the 20-year-old has left the former Big Brother Naija housemate and her family devastated.

Appearing on TV, Khafi alongside her mother and brothers made a plea to anyone who has information about the shooting to please come forward.

“Alex was a loving and caring boy who was loved by so many,” his family said.

“He was so enthusiastic about what he did, he loved IT and computers. His life was tragically cut short by such a senseless act of violence which no one should ever have to endure.

“He will never have the ability to grow up and live the life we all can, he had plans to go to university in September.”

After the family’s appearance on BBC, Khafi took to her Instagram page to share a photo of herself with the late Alexander.

She captioned the photo:

“On the 1st of January 2020 I had no idea I would be going into the 1st day of the second half of the year without my little brother. Almost a month on and the person who has broken my family still has not been found. The hardest thing was not being there for my brother when he cried out for help. I’m praying we can help him now. If you know who did this please come forward. I beg you. #HelpAlex..”

Khafi took part in the 2019 edition of the Big Brother Naija reality show.
