Former Big Brother Africa (BBA): The Chase Zimbabwe representative, Pokello Nare, who has been in Ghana for the past two weeks with Ghanaian BBA housemate and lover Elikem Kumordzie says she cherishes the “quality time” she is having in the West African country.
Pokello has met Elikem’s relatives and reports from Ghana say she has often been spotted at shopping malls shopping with her prospective sisters-in-law.
The programme in Ghana involved a lot of travelling from region to region. The lovebirds toured and partied in three regions in Ghana with the last party held in Ghana’s oil city, Takoradi, on Monday.
The parties were well funded and supported by industry giants such as sponsors of BBA, Airtel and Smirnoff.
Asked about her stay in Ghana, Pokello said she was having a great experience since she was also spending quality time with Elikem.
“All that partying I’m doing here (Ghana) is not just partying, those are paid appearances,” Pokello told NewsDay.
Pokello, who refused to disclose the amount of money she had made in Ghana, said there was more to the parties.
“We charge for all our appearances at clubs and currently we are raising funds for a two-year-old girl in Ghana who was born with a hole in her heart to enable her to undergo surgery in SouthAfrica.”
Pokello seems to have taken her relationship with Elikem further. She said she was ready to marry Elikem and was waiting for him to pay her bride price.
Besides partying, Pokello has signed endorsement deals which she said could not be disclosed until the commercials and billboards go up.
She has also met influential ministers in Ghana and top actors such as John Okafor, who is popularly known in entertainment circles as Mr Ibu. Pokello has also been marketing Elikem’s designer clothes as she has been attending events clad in the designer outfits.
When Elikem came to Zimbabwe a few weeks ago, he spent most of his time travelling and attending a series of parties in Harare and Bulawayo. He barely had time to rest as he had to do a lot of travelling and appearances at different venues.
The two lovers used some of the proceeds they garnered from the appearances to give back to the community when they donated blankets and foodstuffs to Thembiso Children’s Home inBulawayo.
