A former housemate of reality show, Big Brother Naija, Khafi Kareem, on Monday, May 11, spoke on how she rejected the sum of N8 million for promotion of bleaching creams from a company producing them.
Khafi disclosed how she rejected the offer via her instagram page because bleaching was against her personal principles.
She said: “I have always tried to monetise myself in a way that is truly in line with my values. I have had to reject certain things.
So, a certain company contacted me and this is actually, till today, the biggest offer I have received. “It was about N8 million and it wasn’t that much that I would have to do, but it was for a skin bleaching brand. “I was in the dilemma of taking the money but not having to do much and this is not something I believed in,” Khafi said.
She noted that although rejecting the offer was hard, it was necessary because of the value she was intent on building for the future.
I could have just taken the money and not care about the repercussions. There are certain things that I would not be able to do in the future if I take certain deals that were not in relation to my brand. “I had to turn down N8 million so that, by God’s grace, I would make more in the future by being a person of my word,” she added.
