Big Brother Africa feud: Denrele Edun supports Karen against Vimbai



Controversial Nigerian presenter, Denrele Edun on Friday afternoon, made some statements on twitter in defence of his friend and Big Brother Amplified winner, Karen Igho following reports that Karen had refused to be on the set of a photo shoot with her Big Brother Housemate, Vimbai for Miss Dee magazine. Denrele made several comments in defence of Karen after the story was published on some blogs including the following: “Let me clear d air,Karen is in Lagos nd neva went to Abj for ny shoot. Vimbai is jst tryn to create press buzz for herslf…#thats low babes” “All cos Karen cudnt travel to Abuja for dis mag shoot, Vimbai started spreadin wrd that Karen wz stil beefin her. In OUR country again? #smh” “This is no beef,ds is jst an insecure burnt offering runnin our Amplified Karen dwn! Me go forever stand by my gurl Karen! Vimbai u’l get it” “Y is evrione castigatin Karen for refusin to be on d same cover wit Vimbai? Its her personal decision abeg! Vimbai get mind o,mediocre #smh” “@Miss_Vimbai Welcom to Nigeria Vimpire!So u finaly summoned up courage?If Karen refused 2do a shoot wt u,y r u leechin on it&runnin her dwn?” The publishers of Miss Dee magazine have release a statement to clarify issues on Vimbai’s behalf and on their own behalf. “First, Vimbai appreciates the show of support Mr Denrele Edun has portrayed for his friend; Karen Igho especially in times like this that true friendship is hard to come by. There was a shoot in which she, Vimbai was to be part of, for the magazine, Miss Dee. However, that shoot HAS NOT been scheduled.  Vimbai was in Abuja at the Kiss FM studios yesterday for an interview. She was not at ANY SHOOT yesterday. So claims by Denrele that Karen was (or is) in Lagos and not in Abuja yesterday may be factual.” “Also, Vimbai wants to emphatically state that she is not in any way raising dust over Karen’s refusal to be on the same cover of the said magazine with her. The magazine does not in any way belong to Vimbai and even though she is saddened by the turn of events, she is a peace-loving person who so far has enjoyed hospitality in Nigeria. She therefore doesn’t see it fit to spread rumours over trivial issues or take matters into her hands.” “Moreover, Miss Dee is a magazine that, as you read this, is still in business and has a publisher who is hale and hearty. It would be wise and rational for Mr Edun and by extension, everyone else who is interested in knowing the true facts, to contact her and hear for themselves, rather than confront Miss Vimbai.”   “Miss Karen Igho is an adult and is free to take any decision she wants and if she decides to not appear on the cover of the said magazine, she is free to do so. Vimbai is equally an adult and will never attempt to persuade, verbally or otherwise, anyone to go against his/her decision. Finally, Miss Vimbai takes exception to being called “Vimpire” by Mr Denrele Edun, a term which she perceives as abusive and which is similar-sounding to the word “vampire”. She would therefore like an unreserved apology on Twitter, the very same platform the term was used.” She therefore urges the general public to disregard pointers and statements about a “war” with Karen.]]>
