BBA winner, Karen Igho, shrugs off misrepresentation

                                                       Karen Igho                                                    Vimbai Mutinhiri
To understand this press release from Karen's camp, you have to understand what initially happened. There were speculations last week that Ms Igho refused to do a magazine cover shoot with her former Zimbabwean BBA housemate, Vimbai. Read the statement below to get the gist...

A press release allegedly by a representative of Vimbai Mutinhiri (former BBA housemate from Zimbabwe) on the viral social media story – which suggests that the effervescence Ms Karen Igho, deliberately refused to be part of a photo shoot session with her for ‘Miss Dee’ magazine.
While this release frowns on any form of ‘She said, he said’ controversy, Ms Karen’s love for her ever supportive fans and media friends made her request that her position be made public.

Ms Igho was approached in Abuja on the 4th September, 2011 by the publisher of Miss Dee magazine at a casual meet to participate in a photo shoot for the magazine, but no exact time was proposed because at the time Ms Karen was preoccupied with spending quality time with her family in Jos; more so as she had just returned from the BigBrother Africa house and needed a relief from the Amplified euphoria.

However, Ms Karen recently got a call with respect to the photo shoot, but for her engagement with her friend, Mr Denrele Edun on the ‘Heavy Beauty’ movie production set she could have gladly obliged. Hence, it is not practical that Ms Igho who was on a movie set in Lagos refused or walked away from being part of a photo shoot session with Vimbai in Abuja.

Ms Karen has being in frequent communication with housemates, even proven with the time spent with Millicent (Kenya) when she came to Nigeria in spite of the ‘House’ confrontations between both during the BBA game episode.

To further reinforce Ms Karen Igho’s friendly disposition to her fellow housemates from BBA Amplified; Ms Karen had begun sending out official invites to WENDALL PARSON (Zimbabwe), LUCLAY ‘MR OTONO’ (S/Africa), WEZA SOLANGE (Angola), LOMWE (Malawi), MUMBA MWAKWA (Zambia), BERNADINA BUYS (Nambia) and their country counterparts in the BBA house in anticipation of a reunion party in Nigeria towards her April 6th birth date celebration. The weekend activity will feature the launch of Ms Karen’s T-shirt line, a BBA housemates’ media tour, charity visits to orphanage homes and the media launch of her upcoming reality TV shoot (details will be made explicit in a release towards the event).

It is Ms Karen’s view that if  Vimbai has something to say to her friend, Mr Denrele Edun it’s best done through inter-personal communication and she frowns at any insinuation of ‘war’ with anyone, as in the words of the Destiny Child’s song ‘Survivor’ Miss Karen is better than that.

Finally, we like to empathize with ‘Miss Dee’ magazine and request that the media please redirect their channel of inquiry.
Thank you.

What magazine is Miss Dee in the first place?? Does anyone know it? Does anyone buy it? So that's the photo shoot Vimbai came all the way from Zimbabwe for? She carries herself as if she has the world under her feet and she's begging for this feature? Tuehh!!

To me BBM means nothing in particular. But if Nigerians have to be spending so much money watching, voting, txting, then we have the absolute right to keep on winning. All that money has to come back to our dear country. Out Vampire oops Vimbai #

WHO GAVE VIMBAI VISA TO THIS COUNTRY....i can never forget the way she was shaking her head in disgust when Karen was announced winner. She is so small and judgemental. Abeg stay in your Mugabe land and leave us poor Nigerians alone oh. Hungry pretentious witch...

Adele said...

Can I just say this is the best (normal) I have seen Karen look in a long time. Understated hair and makeup. She just looks nice, like a classy person.
Meanwhile, Vimbai should drop the matter abeg. It's not by force if someone doesn't want to take a picture with you! And Karen, it's okay to say that you don't like Vimbai and would not be interested in doing a photo-shoot with her.

Vaughn samuel said...

"EFFERVESCENCE?????" Why would someone describe herself as that? And that is a Noun!!! I am appalled at the level of ignorance that these celebrities exhibit. Someone should call them out.

Kayem said...

Vimbai, photo shoot with Karen? The same Karen with "tattoos all over her body that scare Vimbai"? That is if I heard Vim right in one of her chat sessions. The same Karen Vim told to her face, "i hate you" out of jealousy and anger that Karen might be feeling up Vim's house crush, Wendall, even when Karen wasn't. The same Karen, Vim boldly told off("Don't talk to me like we're friends...you need to be kept in your place...we're not friends....") when Karen came to iron things out with Vim.

Even if Karen really refused a photo shoot with Vim, I wouldn't blame her for still being a little emotional about Vim's cold attitude towards her. She was really mean to Karen, both to her face and behind her back.

If it was Mumba, Bernardina or Otono, trust Karen to sneak out of the movie location to the photo shoot. Those are people who weren't scared of her, didn't hate her. They were and still are her true friends.

Vimbai shouldn't cry now. It's a lesson to her and all of us to be understanding and tolerant of others no matter how "below-our-class" they might appear to be.
