Leo Dasilva joined the conversation on social media about Khafi facing sack for putting her job on the line by attending BBNaija and having sex on the show.
The 29-year-old MET Police officer who was once a ‘poster girl’ for the promotion of female and black staff for the security outfit, earns about £30,000 (N13m) a year. She made headlines today with reports of her being investigated for leaving her job without getting permission from her bosses and having sex on the reality show.
This news has generated a lot of reactions from Nigerians. Most of them were especially surprised that Khafi left a job worth £30,000 (N13 million) to participate in the reality show.
In this regard, a number of Nigerians berated Khafi through tweets.
Khafi earns about 13 million naira per annum working with the UK Police. If I earn that much I won’t go for big brother I know I won’t win sha. I can’t keep up with the Instagram lifestyle to stay relevant.

However reacting to the backlash Khafi got after the report went viral, Leo Dasilva revealed that N13m a year is not big money in the UK. According to the former Big Brother Naija housemate, N13m a year with taxes and cost of living in the UK is not usually enough.
Big brother is a platform.Only looking at it as a cash prize thing, you’re not seeing the bigger picture. She can do a lot of things that will earn her the cash prize over time and continue earning her the cash prize.13m a year with taxes and cost of living isn’t enough.
