Elikem to pay lobola for Pokello

HARARE - Former Big Brother Africa representative, Ghanaian Elikem, has vowed to marry his Zimbabwean flame, Pokello, whom he met on the reality show this year.

Elikem and his elder brother Troy are currently in the country touring his lover’s country and things are heating up between the lovebirds.

Yesterday, they were at the Kebab Centre for a meet and greet autograph and photo session with their fans.
Elikem pledged his love for Pokello and said he would definitely marry her.

“Of course I want to marry her, I love her. I just have to put together the money for lobola because I understand that Zimbabwean girls do not come cheap,” he said.

He confessed that upon getting into the house he had not thought about love but could not help himself after setting his eyes on the ‘queen of swag.’

“I was just free-styling when I got into the house, I had not thought about love. But it happened and I am glad it did. You know when you meet a beautiful, intelligent and confident woman you just have to chat her up, that’s what happened with Pokello until we clicked.

“When she was evicted, I was sad as she was my best friend. We decided to pursue the relationship out of the house and here we are,” Elikem said.

The love birds will be flying to Ghana on Tuesday to have formal introductions with Elikem’s family. Meanwhile, they are waiting to formally meet Pokello’s parents.

“We have met with her family but it was not really formal, her father has been very busy but the formalities will be done before we leave for Ghana,” said Elikem’s elder brother Troy.

Troy acknowledged that his brother was deeply in love with the Zimbabwean socialite.

“It’s real, when he was going to Big Brother, he did not say anything about finding love but it happened. It happened naturally as we were watching and I could see that he was really in love.

“We are planning on lobola yes but I hear it’s about $25 000 in Zimbabwe, I mean if you want something nice and good you have to pay for it,” he said.

Pokello said one of them would consider relocating but they have not decided on who it will be.

They will be visiting the Heroes Acre today.

Pokello cannot believe it that he is getting into marriage with a 24 year old Ghanian! The speed of the two is just too much and the marriage won't last. Next headlines will be on DIVORCE. People should study each other before getting into serious commitments. Pokello naElikem dzungu roga roga!! If you read the story unfolding, it is like an AFRICAN MOVIE in which mai AZUKA is the main actor!!!! Marriage will be granted but please take you time! You are no longer in BBA so make it real this time around.

Varume namadzimai rudo rwechokwadi runobva kuna Mwari, zvenyu zvekuitwa being driven by lust u wont last. Its foolish for a girl to take a lover as a husband and its wise for a woman to take a husband as a lover. You the common error comes when the devil makes one think that he/she is persuing his personal interests and can give a blindness into the near future. Relationship is all abt foundation not the outward bragging. Right now when she reads these views she will say vane godo, you will tell us. We just pray that she does not shed a bad picture abt Zimbabwean girls. Lord have mercy. Jonah 2'8: 'Those who cling to lying vanities forsake the grace that could have been theirs'. Its time to make solid decisions all of us for our betterment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@Rudo ibofu ruchiva hupenzi... I can just add an observation frm King Solomon, he is the wisest king ever recorded in the Word of God and had many wives and concubines but he came to a conclusion that ALL IS VANITY. It takes building the house on the Rock for it to last, even those whose are on sand they even stand up on the group revane dzimba but when trials come it will prove them otherwise!!!!!!
