Elikem has revealed that he paid $25,000 as bride price for Pokello’s hand in marriage which happened over the weekend in Zimbabwe.
The Big Brother housemates are officially married and Elikem has confirmed that he is married to Pokello.
In an interview with Accra based Peace FM, Elikem unveiled that, “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”.
The newly married man added, “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”.
The talented Fashion Designer, explained that according to Zimbabwean culture a couple waits for months or even years before their white wedding so the date for their white wedding is not known yet.
He, however, indicated that the white wedding would take place both in Zimbabwe and Ghana on separate dates.
Among those who flew with Elikem from Ghana to Zimbabwe were his mother, his grandmother, his brothers, cousins, his sister, his spiritual father Elder Maxwell and a few close friends.
Also in attendance was Ghana’s ambassador to Zimbabwe his Excellency Mr. Sylvanus Tamakloe.
