#BBNaija – Kemen apologizes to TBoss



After the furore over his alarming non-consensual acts against TBoss, disqualified Big Brother Naija housemate Kemen has apologized.

Read below;

My name is Ekemini Ekerette, popularly known as Kemen (@Kemen_Fitness) one of the Big Brother Naija 2017 Housemate. I am a Fitness Trainer and a Model before joining the Big Brother house.

Firstly ,I hereby tender my sincere apologies to TBoss and ask for her forgiveness as well as all the women in Africa who percieved my action as violation or a sexual offence… however I have stated the reality of what actual happened in my interview.
I knew that everybody was playing the game in the house at the same time competing for the prize. I realised that I over played my game which brought about my disqualification .
As you all know, I have my fitness outfit, where I train a lot of people both men and women. There has been no case or report of such acts from me. I regret the turn of play while trying to play and compete for the prize.

I must emphasize that reality is different from perception However ,I also use this medium to apologise to all women being the International Women’s Day, and the entire crew of Big Brother Nigeria, including my fans and family. #BBNaija #JustForYou #Payport #SeeGobe

Coincidentally, today in the #BBNaija house, Big Brother Naija housemates were taught about consent and sexual assault.

What are you thoughts?

    that’s not an apology!
    when apologizing,you take full responsibility of your actions…don’t justify any part of the offence. what is ” reality is different from perception”?
    you guys have shown your real colors, don’t come out and tell us otherwise.

      What again do you want from Kemen? You want his head on a platter? He has tendered sincere apologies to Tboss and all the Women and I think Tboss will accept his apology. Kemen well done as it takes a real man to own up to sexual misconduct and ask for forgiveness. You have learnt your lessons likewise many Guys, We learn everyday.

      Ogbuefi!!!! Are you kidding me?! This is not a sincere apology, he is even trying to justify why he did it, making him lose his so called “sincerity ” abeg don’t mislead and deceive yourself, this man is evening saying that us women “PERCEIVED ” this as sexual misconduct. Keep quite if you’re a man, We want a sincere apology, real men sincerely apologize, us as WOMAN will know when he has really seen the error of his ways, which starts when he stops justifying.

      Hahahahah. Tell our granny to learn to forgive. My mum self still calls Genny Sharon Stone and is quick in telling everyone how much of a bad girl she is (from the movie)
      He has a long way to go to be forgiven by the nigerians.

      “Nigerians wont forgive you” who said Nigerian’s forgiveness matters? Are they God?? look at you people judging judging judging! God knows how many of you have fondled with a woman and got away with it because no one was watching. Is it because his case was on live tV all of you are here attacking the man? Let he who is without sin cast the first stone! Leave this issue between Kemen and God, stop acting like he is the first man to sin. He doesn’t need ur forgiveness you are not Jesus Christ. If God can forgive who the hell are Nigerians? Judgemental people.

    It’s funny how Nigerians who do worse things in their daily lives can come out to condemn Kemen even after an apology. Don’t dish out what you don’t want to be served. He has apologized, take it as it is. It’s not like the Tboss is totally innocent, so kilode! Abeg free the guy, and everyone should face their own lives!

      March 8, 2017 at 7:53 pm

      “It’s funny how Nigerians who do worse things in their daily lives can come out to condemn Kemen”
      Flawed logic and far from the point.

      “Don’t dish out what you don’t want to be served.”
      ?????? Oh, how dare people condemn sexual abuse??!

      “He has apologized, take it as it is.”
      You call this an apology? And NO, we won’t take it as it is because we won’t permit and encourage bratty, entitled behavior from a beta male rapist who cannot man up and give a sincere apology.

      “It’s not like the Tboss is totally innocent,”
      Nice way to round up your comment by proving beyond doubt that you are an idiot.

    Ok… I dont mean to sound harsh but this attempt at cleaning up his image may have been premature and is Not going to do anything for him. Firstly he did not give his account of what happened at least from his perspective. secondly, he did not address the issue of consent, or what he has learned from this experience. Instead he apologised and blamed it on the fact that he is such a great game player wowwu. such a bright chap. However I still dont see the strategy in touching a woman inappropraitely in her sleep, most especially one whom you know does not share the same feelings as you. what was the end game in that? Mind you this is not the first time he has attempted to fondle TBOSS whilst claiming to be asleep. This same person said he was going to get Gifty drunk and have his way with her. Please what do they call that type of strategy? He even lied to the housemates as he was leaving the house pls what were you protecting? he didnt even apologise to her face if it was truely an error. I think he just wanted what he wanted by fire or by force. If you want to say sorry say it properly. My question is why would he do such knowing fully well that the cameras might catch him for such a bright chap he sure missed the mark in this game.

    World people! Sexual assault analysts!! body movement analysts!! Sleep analysts!! Apology analysts!!!, na real wa!! e never do all of una? Kukuma ask for Kemens dead body!! Some of you have been so vocal here for days, but have you ever educated one man you know about these issues abi you think those ones are saints!! It really seems this is not just about what happened, the way you people have hated this guy since this BB of a show started makes me believe all of this happened because it was Kemen. If this was any other HM the reaction would have probably not been enough to pressure BB organisers to take action and thats a shame!!!


    Dear Kemen, you were wrong and its gud you acknowledge that and apologised! Lessons learnt i hope! More importantly, look up to your God! we all make mistakes. All the best…

    • tunmi

      March 9, 2017 at 2:57 am

      He hasn’t owned up to what he did. He said if it was perceived as sexual assault. It WAS sexual assault. An apology is owning what you did and accepting that it was wrong. He hasn’t done that.

      Someone stole and they’re saying, “sorry if you perceived it as a theft” bitch you stole, TF you mean???

    Come to the first world and try your silly game with a conscious or unconscious woman and you will be playing the same game with some men for years. I wish he gets arrested and charged to court so a precedence can be set. That way we can have a new law called the kemen law. How is that for a game, oh and the popularity, law students will be studying you forever. Dude you will go down in history.

    I just realized that BN has the smartest set of commenters. See fools on lindaikeji and SDK buying into this farce of an apology. This is just a joke. This molester doesn’t feel the slightest remorse for what he did. He is a sick man. Imagine his brother justifying his acts on twitter. It runs in their family for sure. Family of rapists. I’m sure Tboss isn’t his first victim.

      It is with great sadness that people can habor such hatred for another human being. Kemen’s apology leaves a lot to be desired and begs a lot of questions. Its all fair to analyse it, without judging. If one has been watching the show, one would realise that its not as if the attention Tboss got from Kemen was unwarranted. However, in all fairness what he did was wrong and his apology is just to save face like any other normal human being. He has demons he needs to face on a personal level, the biggest one being alcohol. If at all, I would suggest he doesnt touch alcohol at all. As for all of us, let us not judge, just for the sake of it. To all of us man, don’t even think of putting yourself into that kind of situation, women and some good for nothing man will call you an excuse of a man. Never put yourself in a situation where you have to apologise…

    Not an apology and as a strategist&manipulator,he has used it to sell himself and his business instead of actually apologizing. Kemen, until you agree to what the ladies in the house said about you being sexually molested as a child(which I agree)&seek help instead of bragging about how you started having sex at the age of 6 abi 8 with your house help,you’ll keep having this issue. You were constantly talking about or inciting sexual innuendos. This stems from your early introduction to it. You are actually addicted to everything sex inclined. Look for a Psychologist to help you. You may be feeling like a big boy because you started early but you need help. I remember when you guys had the discussion&TTT said he was 18 the first time he had sex, you looked at him funny&even laughed like he was a novice to have started at that age. Everything was always about sex for you in that house. You were either telling the guys to go for it or trying to force yourself on the ladies. Don’t chuck it up to playing a game, it’s your way of life.Why did u stop wearing sleepwear when you decided to start sleeping in Tboss’s bed? Why were you wearing only your robe with nothing underneath? These to me were premeditated acts leading up to what you did. Why did u in the first place leave your bedspace upstairs to come to her bed even after she had told you time without number she wasn’t interested in you beyond platonic friendship? You even talked about how she became close to Jon when he came&at that point you felt there was no way for you during one of the confession games . You would have stuck to that. Anyone she liked/likes, the whole house knew. There was a confession game and she let you know her stand. You began to say to the guys/Uriel even in a dissing tone you weren’t interested in her anymore yet at the slightest opportunity you did otherwise. Why didn’t you just stick to Uriel who you admitted you liked and who liked you back? Except it was because she was the only one that gave you the time of day. You would have been honourably evicted on Sunday but you had to let the devil use you. All your fellow evicted housemates are making waves and building on the platform,you have crashed yours. I really hope you seek help.

    He should have said he allowed his emotions get the best of him, which one is game in touching someone in her sleep. Anyways he has apologized, at least a strong message was sent across to all those that feel consent is not important and this goes to both male and female

    Hi Bella, please after today I don’t want to see this foolish soul and weak specimen of a man on your platform anymore. Its obvious he would like to remain with his perverted mindset. Thank you. I thought I was going to read an actual apology not talking about its a game.

    As for John, your case is different just pray this does not happen to any female you hold dear in your life. Thanks

      This is sexual abuse. Not a game & in the Canada, U.K., Europe & USA his ass will be in jail right now.
      Do you think it is normal for someone to go into your bed & sexually molest you without consent.

      Pls go a pray for intelligence, cos you are spreading stupidity here & this type of thinking in dangerous.

Besides have we sit to think why Tboss would have to sneak into his bed for the very first time, the very night he announced honestly to the hearing of everyone that he was drunk??

    This should now be a matter for the police. This is straight up rape.

    Any non-consensual sex act is rape. TBoss should respect herself & report this formally. This is not a matter of forgiveness. TBoss could become traumatised by this & need psycho therapy in future.
    Kemen is disgusting & a sexual predator & needs to be locked up.
    This is straight up disgusting. TBoss needs to sue Big Brother for allowing this to occur on their watch.
    Other men will think this behaviour is normal & do it to any one.

    This tboss and Kemen issue is really bothering me as a woman,I personally think tboss put herself in that position she was good at flashing tits in front of young guys really at her age she led the young man on she wanted popularity and besides she said so that she’s bitter abt men if that was the case why did she then let men sleep on her bed ?Another thing she controlled Miyonse ,didn’t want him to socialize with ladies in the house and then she nominated him for evection I personally think she’s a bitter fool taking advantage of young men,in the video of her and kemen she woke up and turned why didn’t she scream and jump as she claims kemen put his hands in her panty which woman would keep quiet in such circumstances if not enjoying if biggie didn’t ask her she wouldn’t have said anything she just wants attention as usual .

      Flashing her tits,lead him on? Pls, was he the only man in that house? Did she go rubbing her tits on him or open it specifically for him? Did she ever declare she was interested in him or show any interest outside being a friend and fellow house mate? Don’t we the viewers and they in the house know and have known everyone she has been interested in? Did she go find him in his bed? Pray tell,how did she actually lead him on? I don’t particularly like Tboss but pls let’s stop with the blames. We are talking about an adult&not a kid here. He is soon to be 28, even Efe at 24 knows better.

    Will ya all shut the – up. Tboss or whatever you call yourself, if ya really think ya going to win this game then ya are mistaken because almost everyone who left the house is as a result of your pranks. First, the laughing jackass from Edo state was sent to that house to rescue you when supposedly you would have left that house. Second, now that you have succeeded in throwing kemen out, can BBN give me suitable reasons why there will be no eviction on sunday. They know quite well that even your Fellow housemates are not happy with you, and that they will (and not might) vote you for eviction this Sunday. That’s why there won’t be any eviction. Oh Nigeria, when shall thou be free from corruption?. I want to know when. CAPITAL RUBBISH.

Kemen regardless is son of the soil he’s not perfect like y’all are.ever since the start of bbn u hv been hating on him in every good he did, it’s like you prayed ,wished and created this mess fr him. Back off and let this guy live cauz he has a life to live…Concentrate on your own life and correct your mistakes unless if u live to criticise kemen then go on hate do your job!77
