Khafi Kareem, one of the housemates in the ongoing BBNaija reality show has maintained that she did not have sex with her love interest, Gedoni Ekpata.
She reiterated that she is still celibate and would not have sex on the show.
News Agency of Nigeria reports that Khafi, an officer with the UK Metropolitan Police, disclosed this to other housemates while they were sharing stories of things unknown to other people about them.
The former Head of House said she has been celibate for years as a part of her healing process for some issues she had in her life at a point.
The news came as a surprise for many fans as Khafi was earlier reported to have had sex with her now-evicted love interest, Gedoni Ekpata, while he was still in the house.
The mystery was resolved when fellow housemate, Ike Oyeama, on Thursday, revealed that he and Diana, a fellow housemate planted a condom by Khafi and Gedoni’s bed as a prank. It sparked rumours that the duo had sex.
Ike told a shocked Khafi that he initially wanted to plant the condom for Omashola and Tacha but was almost caught by the latter, causing him to settle for Khafi and Gedoni.
Reacting to the news, Khafi said, “Everyone was going to think it was me and Gedoni but my mind is clear, my conscience is clear, it’s not us. It was very funny.
“Me and Gedoni looked at each other and was like, no; I am a very physically affectionate person. Nothing will happen in the house,” she said.
Interestingly, the clip of this discussion was only available on Showmax, DStv’s on-demand platform which few fans have access to, and not the regular BBNaija station.
NAN reports that, on his part, Gedoni has repeatedly said that they did not have sex and the rumours were unfounded.
When asked to address the sex rumours, Gedoni told show host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu that he was unhappy that the rumour went viral and felt terrible about its effects on Khafi’s chances in the show.
He added, “I think I will allow Khafi to answer whether we had sex or not. There were intense moments but sex, no.”
He also detailed the moment he felt sparks for the bubbly Khafi and stated that his feelings for her were real.
Meanwhile, Khafi is up for eviction on Sunday.
