Could lovers, Elikem Kumordzie and Pokello Nare be hiding their bundle of joy? Last year, there were rumours that Pokello was pregnant, explaining Elikem’s constant visits to Zimbabwe where he was often spotted buying popular wild fruit – sugar plum (mahobohobo/mazhanje) from fruit vendors in Harare. It was reported then that Pokello, because of her pregnancy, had developed a craving for the fruit and would send Elikem to buy some.
But, it seemed the rumour was untrue as news of her giving birth was never heard of. After people had somewhat forgotten about the pregnancy rumour, an image of Elikem holding a new born baby has emerged on social media networking sites, raising speculation again. Moles close to the couple, however, say the baby is indeed theirs and is about two months old now.
“Pokello gave birth to a baby boy in Harare late last year. His name is Tristen,” said the source.
“Pokello and Elikem are keeping the news under wraps because they’re not yet ready to share it with the world.”
The image in which Elikem will be cuddling a baby was shared on one of the couple’s Facebook fan pages. Followers took turns to congratulate them though many were disappointed questioning why their Big Brother Africa favourites had kept the news away from them.
“Ohhhhhhhhhhh my people, how can you hide this from us your fans. Congratulations, I’m so happy for you as if it’s mine. Congrats Pokello and the tailor, Elikem,” posted Oshy Mambathane.
Ollie Nelia wrote: “Lol you guys, she actually gave birth last year. Congrats Pokkie and good job for keeping it private.”
But, to add onto the confusion, Pokello has vehemently denied claims that she has given birth or is pregnant saying the baby held by Elikem is his sister’s.
“Where do people get such stories from? I don’t have a baby other than Ethan,” said Pokello.
“The baby Elikem is carrying in the picture is his sister’s daughter. Her name is Naa.”
Pokello and Elikem Kumordzie got married traditionally at a private family gathering in June last year. They have been constantly in the air, flying between Zimbabwe and Ghana.
