Actor and Fashion designer, Elikem Kumordzie has reacted to a story we published on Ghbase.com which questioned if his marriage has ended as his wife, Pokello did not send out a birthday wish to him on Social media like she’s always done in the past.
We found the need to question if everything was OK in their marriage as we had seen a similar thing with Chris Attoh and his ex-wife Damilola, where on Chris’s birthday Damilola refused to wish him a happy birthday on Social media. There were media reports that their marriage had crushed but Chris vehemently denied the reports only to come out months later, bowing in shame that, indeed his marriage had ended because his wife was not submissive.
In the case of Elikem and Pokello, we know them to be the kind of couple who love to flaunt their relationship on Social media, sharing all the beautiful moments when they started dating and even when the got married.
We realized that, they’ve both stopped posting pictures of each other, we hardly see them together at events and for Pokello to ignore wishing his darling husband on social media, considering the fact that, she’s always done that in the past, it makes sense for Ghbase.com to suspect something could be wrong but Elikem has come out to say that, his marriage is no one’s business.
The fashion designer in an interview with Joy Fm’s MzGee told the host that, he owes no one an explanation when it comes to his marriage.
“Why are people dwelling on what is on social media… I don’t understand why because there hasn’t been a post where people will not want to jump into conclusion to say A, B or C. Secondly, I am not ready to spit out what’s private at home out on air to say yes I am divorced or no I am not divorced so whether there is a divorce or not, I’m sure it is not anyone’s business so to speak,” he said.
Elikem urged the media to seek more information on the state of his marriage from the court.
“People like to keep their lives private at a certain point in time, maybe we are used to people who like to post stuff… It’s not important for people to want to find out. We haven’t been posting on social media anymore but we haven’t also posted whether we are or we are not so why do people just want to jump into conclusion and say we are not because there is no social media post,” he quizzed.
Elikem and Pokello have a son together. Their love story began when they met as housemates at the Big Brother Africa 2013 edition. A year after, Elikem proposed to Pokello at the 2014 VGMAs when they were on stage to present an award.
So what do you think? Why couldn’t Elikem just state authoritatively that he’s still married and happy with Pokello?
