[[Stunner]]’s ex-wife [[Olinda Chapel]] accused her husband Stunner of cheating on her with his ex-girlfriend model and socialite Pokello.  Olinda claimed that she had received the information from Stunner's friend Trigger.

Reports that the couple had split up started in 2017 when their ritual of wishing celebrating birthdays on social media was broken. Elikem was reported not to frequent Zimbabwe and  Pokello was reported to have moved on and is said to be in a relationship with Ronald Muzambe who calls himself “rondontharon” on Instagram.

===Elikem filing for Divorce===
 +
 
 +
Ghanaian Elikem Kumordzie filed for divorce from wife of three years, socialite Pokello Nare. Though his lawyers, Mahuni Gidiri Law Chambers, Elikem told the High Court that the marriage had irretrievably broken down such that there were no prospects for reconciliation. Part of Elikem’s court papers read,
 +
 
 +
<blockquote>The plaintiff (Elikem) and defendant (Pokelo) have not stayed together as husband and wife for the past one year since September 2017 and such is regarded by plaintiff to be incompatible with the continuation of a normal marriage relationship. As a result of the above, the plaintiff has lost love and affection to the extent that there are no prospects for reconciliation due to the irretrievable differences between the parties…Plaintiff avers that he will maintain the minor child by paying $500 per month.</blockquote><ref name="pindula12"> [https://news.pindula.co.zw/2018/09/13/elikem-sues-for-divorce-offers-to-pay-500-maintenance/ Elikem Sues For Divorce, Offers To Pay $500 Maintenance ⋆ Pindula News],'' Pindula News, published: 13 Sep 2018, retrieved: 13 Sep 2018''</ref>

He also said his daughter was strong enough not to be weakened by the tape.[7]

Big Brother Africa - The Chase

Pokello had a colorful stay at Big Brother Africa in 2013. She survived eviction four times. The first time she received eight country votes and the following two times she had four country votes. She was however evicted in July 2013. Controversy also followed her in the house when she called herself Delicious Delilah[8] at the grand finale of the Chase. This did not go down well with most of her fans who found the comments embarrassing and revealing. It was here that she also met her husband Elikem. The latter represented Ghana in BBA. The two were constantly spotted bathing together and sharing the same bed. Above all, they often kissed on occasions. As a result, Pokello went on to dump then boyfriend Stunner live on television. Pokello did this on the day of her eviction from BBA.[9]


Marriage

Engagement and Wedding

In May 2014, Pokello got engaged to her Ghanaian boyfriend Elikem. The two met on Big Brother Africa in 2013. Pokello and Elikem got engaged on air while presenting the Best Collaboration of the Year at the 2014 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.[10] However, she caused a stir with her Facebook and Twitter messages after the marriage proposal, poking and asking people how they felt if a whore could get married.[11] This ignited public debate with many castigating her loose morals.

A year after her engagement, Pokello would eventually get married in a traditional wedding to Ghanaian Elikem in Zimbabwe.[12] Reports were that the bride price was in the region of US$18,000.[12]


Allegations of extramarital affair with Stunner

Stunner’s ex-wife Olinda Chapel accused her husband Stunner of cheating on her with his ex-girlfriend model and socialite Pokello. Olinda claimed that she had received the information from Stunner's friend Trigger. This information came out when Olinda found out through her phone that Stunner was guilty of marital infidelities in their matrimonial home when she was away in the United Kingdom where she is based, including with another young model and socialite too who Stunner was old enough to be her father called Cyclone Dyonne.

Marital Problems

Socialite Pokello Nare’s marriage to Ghanaian Elikem Kumordzie was reported to have ended. Elikem described his marriage to his fellow Big Brother Africa housemate as a mistake that he hoped not to repeat.

Reports that the couple had split up started in 2017 when their ritual of wishing celebrating birthdays on social media was broken. Elikem was reported not to frequent Zimbabwe and Pokello was reported to have moved on and is said to be in a relationship with Ronald Muzambe who calls himself “rondontharon” on Instagram. Pokello who had been advertising Elikem’s clothing designs was reported to have stopped. [13]

It was also alleged that Ghanaian Elikem Kumordzie and Pokello married for business, not for love, if one looks closely at their union and subsequent break-up.Cite error: The opening <ref> tag is malformed or has a bad name

Elikem filing for Divorce

Ghanaian Elikem Kumordzie filed for divorce from wife of three years, socialite Pokello Nare. Though his lawyers, Mahuni Gidiri Law Chambers, Elikem told the High Court that the marriage had irretrievably broken down such that there were no prospects for reconciliation. Part of Elikem’s court papers read,

The plaintiff (Elikem) and defendant (Pokelo) have not stayed together as husband and wife for the past one year since September 2017 and such is regarded by plaintiff to be incompatible with the continuation of a normal marriage relationship. As a result of the above, the plaintiff has lost love and affection to the extent that there are no prospects for reconciliation due to the irretrievable differences between the parties…Plaintiff avers that he will maintain the minor child by paying $500 per month.
