Former Big Brother housemate, Khafi Kareem, has paid tribute to her younger brother on the second anniversary of his death.

It could be recalled that Alex was killed in London, United Kingdom (UK) on Monday, June 8, 2020.

Alexander Kareem, was shot close to his family house in Shepherd’s Bush, West London by a yet-to-be-identified person in 2020 while returning home from a convenience store.

In an Instagram post on Thursday, June 9, 2022, the reality TV star shared a song written by her other brother Kabiz Kareem in memory of Alexander.

She further called on persons who might have information on the shooting to come out and help in identifying the murderer.

“Today marked two years since my brother Alex was murdered in cold blood on the streets of London. It feels so wrong to commemorate this kind of anniversary; wedding anniversaries, birthdays, etc. are things that should be celebrated and remembered, not a day of death. But two years on and still his murderers have not been found.

“This is NOT OKAY. It hurts me every day and is not getting any easier, I just find better ways to suppress my grief as time goes on, but every time it arises it is like a dagger to my chest afresh. It has made me so sensitive to any news of death, especially shootings like those in Owo, Uvalde, and particularly news of young black boys dying needlessly. They trigger so much for me.

“So I was dreading today. And if I had it my way I would have buried my head in the sand and pretended this isn’t my reality. I had 3 brothers and now I only have 2. And the people responsible are still walking the streets.

“It makes me so so angry. But my brother @kabiz_k wrote this song (full song in my bio) and it expresses so much of how I feel, I couldn’t share it. Please listen, in memory of my brother Alex and all the fallen. Their deaths will not be in vain. And if you have any information on Alex’s death, it is not too late to speak up,” she wrote.
