The pair met during season 8 of Big Brother Africa (The Chase) in 2013 got married in September 2015. But less than two years after they tied the knot, their marriage hit the rocks.
Elikem has now explained that age was a factor in his failed marriage.
He made this known during a recent Instagram live session with fellow fashion designer and Radio host, KOD.
When asked by KOD, If there are things he could have done to save his marriage if he had the opportuning to do it again, he said:
‘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, am 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 there [Zimbabwe] and I have to be here [Ghana ] and then we had to separate.”
