Khafi’s management has threatened to sue British tabloid The Sun to court for publishing an article about the Big Brother Naija housemate which is believed to be damaging to her reputation by her team.
The Sun had released an official statement from the Metropolitan Police which claimed Khafi was denied permission to partake in the ongoing show and promised to investigate the circumstances surrounding her participation in the show because her actions in the Big Brother house has brought disrepute to the MET Police.
Khafi’s management says it will sue The Sun if it refuses to make an immediate retraction alongside a public apology.
“The attention of Khafi’s management has been drawn to a publication by The Sun UK on Tuesday, August 13, 2019, titled ‘LOIN OF DUTY Met Police ‘poster girl’ faces sack for ‘having sex’ on Nigerian Big Brother after being told not to take part. The brazen sensational and defamatory outburst by The Sun UK is written in poor taste without considering the ethics of journalism which seeks balance and objectivity. At no time did The Sun UK send a mail of inquiry to Khafi’s official email which is blasted across her social media platforms under active management to confirm or refute the claims in the publication. Khafi’s side of the story is deliberately and conveniently omitted to sell a pre-conceived narrative while responses from “outraged colleagues” and “other papers” riddle the publication.”
“This comes from a repressive culture of shaming and characterizing women for their sexual decisions and life choices. We find The Sun UK’s publication repulsive and damaging to the image and livelihood of our client. We demand an immediate retraction of the publication by The Sun UK and a public apology to our client Khafilat Kareem within the next 48 hours. Legal options are also being considered at this time”.
