“I was young and didn’t understand the concept of marriage and sacrifice – Elikem Kumordzie talks on his failed marriage with Pokello
Ghanaian actor and fashion designer, Elikem Kumordzie has blamed being young and his inability to understand the concept of marriage and sacrifice for his failed marriage to Pokello Nare.
Speaking during a recent Instagram live session with fellow fashion designer and Radio host, KOD, Elikem explained that his failed marriage was as a result of age factor.
When asked if there was something he could have done to save his marriage if given the opportunity.
Elikem answered ;
There was an interview Pokello did some time ago and she said, Elikem was not ready for marriage.
I got married at 26 – 27, maybe she was right. Pokello is three -years older and at the time we got married, I think she was 29 -30.
Maybe she was seeing something at that time, I couldn’t see. But now that I have turned 31, I’m seeing a lot of things I didn’t see at 27.
In considering people and appreciating people, maybe she was right to some extent because I must have not understood the concept of marriage and sacrifice.
“I don’t remember too well when we fell off but there was this long period of time where things just went off.
She has to be in Zimbabwe and I have to be in Ghana and then we had to separate,”
The two reality stars met during season 8 of big brother Africa in 2013. They got married in September 2015 but their marriage hit the rock less than two years later.
Elikem Kumordzie and Pokello Nare has since moved on and they share a son together.
