BBA
star, Elikem Kumordzi who represented Ghana in the 2013 edition
of Big Brother Africa, quietly
wedded his fellow housemate, Pokello Nare; a Zimbabwean, in a traditional
marriage on Saturday in Harare, Zimbabwe.

According
to him, he paid $25,000 (N5million) as her bride price. He made this known in
an exclusive interview with Peacefmonline.com. Elikem said;
 “I
paid a lot of money and before you pay such money for a lady’s hand in marriage
you have to be sure she’s the one. Otherwise you will be a silly young man
throwing a lot of money away. So it feels good to be married to the right
woman. It feels amazing. No mistakes or regrets whatsoever.”
“I
initially didn’t want to make this information public but people are getting
figures wrong so I want to correct it. The lobola (Bride price for a
traditional marriage in Zimbabwe) was 25,000 US Dollars. A deposit of 20,000 US
Dollars was paid on Saturday and the 5,000 US Dollars balance is to be paid by
the white wedding,” he said.
Elikem
also said that  according to the
Zimbabwean culture, a couple waits for months and sometimes years before their
white wedding, so the date for their white wedding is still unknown. He however
pointed out that the white wedding would take place both in Zimbabwe and Ghana
on separate dates.
The
BBA stars, Elikem Kumordzie and Pokello Nare met on reality TV show, Big
Brother Africa Season 8 ‘The Chase’ held in South Africa in 2013. They dated on
and off before finally tying the knot. Their marriage became shaky after Elikem
was accused of having an affair with a married woman.
