Pokello caused headlines in an encouraging and slightly controversial speech made, addressing University graduates,
“Money follows vision. My advice on how to start a business is, look for a niche, market something that not a lot of people are already doing. We are living in a country where the nature of our unemployment now requires more entrepreneurs and less corporate professionals. Most of these degrees you are doing are going to end up accumulating dust on the walls. The reality of our economy is that it forces you to think outside of the box. It breeds motivators. I was the first woman in the country to launch a shoe brand, I am also the first woman to launch a Gel Polish line.”
Elikem Kurmodzie proposed to Zimbabwean actress Pokello Nare on live television. The pair won Best Collaboration of the Year at the 2014 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards. They met while shooting Big Brother Africa in 2013.
According to reports, Nare ignited a social media uproar when she supposedly posted on Facebook and Twitter, poking and asking others how they felt about a whore getting married.
Many individuals condemned her lax morals, sparking a public controversy. Pokello and Elikem Kurmodzie married in Zimbabwe in a traditional ceremony in 2015. Unfortunately, the couple split in 2018. They are the parents of two children.
During the launch of She Roars Brand at the University of Zimbabwe, Pokello was one of the guest speakers in a programme to empower young women. This is where she opened up about her marriage to Elikem Kurmodzie.
The socialite announced at the launch that her three-year marriage to the actor and fashion designer Elikem Kurmodzie was to prove the point that she is still in fact ‘wife material’.
“I made a lot of mistakes in my life… I also got married at the age of 28 because I felt like I needed to prove to people that with all my scandals, I still am wife material,” said Pokello.
This well-known Zimbabwean socialite and entrepreneur claims that the leak of her sex tape some years ago was the worst experience she has ever had. She was open about how the leak was not something she had intended.
Pokello Nare kissed and had unprotected sex with her ex-boyfriend, Desmond ‘Stunner’ Chideme, on the leaked sex tape.
Pokello said to a group of university students, “That was actually a mistake, it leaked; it was not intended for public viewing or consumption.”
She also spent time warning female students about the perils of sharing sex recordings.
“I also want young girls to learn from my mistakes, it was a mistake, it wasn’t my fault. I wasn’t responsible for how it got out. I can’t take responsibility for that part, but what I can do is to be an example to young girls to say this is not how you want to make it.”
Wherever she gets that niche from for a good eye and good taste in fashion, we want it too. There’s no picture of hers where she does not look on point. Every day and every occasion, Pokello just keeps slaying it.
Is there any colour or outfit that Pokello doesn’t look good in?
