EVICTED Zimbabwean Big Brother Africa (BBA): The Chase housemate Pokello Nare has dumped her sex tape boyfriend, famous rapper Desmond “Stunner” Chideme, for her newly-found love, .
Speaking in a telephone interview from Johannesburg, Pokello acknowledged that she was in a relationship with Stunner before entering BBA, but that had since changed because of her affair with Ghanaian housemate Elikem in the house.
She said she had spoken to Stunner and they had agreed to remain friends.
“When I left the house, I spoke to Stunner on the phone about the developments in the house and we have agreed to be friends,” she said.
When asked about their relationship, Stunner denied having spoken to Pokello saying he was yet to talk to her to map a way forward.
“I haven’t spoken to her and I will tell you my position when I talk to her. Whatever she told you is the position,” an emotional Stunner said.
Stunner had initially been dropped by Pokello during the Live Eviction show on Sunday when BBA host I.K asked her about her relationship back home and what she would do now that she had Elikem.
“I’m feeling Elikem big time, all day, every day, it is what it is. I will wait for him,” Pokello said, not mentioning anything about Stunner.
During her stay in the house, Pokello rarely ever spoke about Stunner. The only time she would talk about him in passing was when she would tell Elikem about their sex tape.
Pokello said the sex tape with Stunner was a private recording which accidentally leaked to the public. She said when it leaked, it did affect her, but she decided to be strong about it and not make it affect her. Therefore, in a move to correct her mistake, Pokello decided to enter BBA to write and tell her own story.
“After the sex tape leaked, most people in Zimbabwe only knew me as the girl in the sex tape. I, therefore, wanted to tell my own story by showing them the other side of me,” she said.
She said she felt she had accomplished her mission judging from the feedback she was now receiving on social networks with people praising her for her disciplined performance in the House.
Pokello tried by all means to hide her feelings for Elikem though they would show each time other females got close to him. She would always freak out and declare war against the female housemates and up to today, she does not get along well with Fatima (Malawi) and Feza, who both fancied Elikem.
Elikem, on the other hand, always expressed his feelings for Pokello and said he would do anything to get her.
Pokello, unlike most female housemates, always looked her best, something she said all women needed to do. She said she also used to do her make-up frequently because she was the face of Vault Cosmetics, an American cosmetics company.
Pokello said she was not surprised that most housemates disliked her because they were probably intimidated by her.
“I was always looking good in the house, with my make-up and hair well done all the time. Most female housemates were probably intimidated by that as they probably could not keep up with me,” she said.
She added that some female housemates like Fatima (Malawi) probably hated her because of her relationship with Elikem in the House.
“I know Fatima disliked me because at one time she was very close to Elikem. But when Elikem and I were in a relationship, Fatima probably hated me because Elikem could not be close to her like he was before,” Pokello said.
Pokello said she knew she had been evicted mainly for badmouthing West Africans and apologised to them for her derogatory remarks which she said in anger after her country mate, Hakeem, was evicted.
“I want to apologise to West Africans for insulting them when I was in the house, it was all out of anger and I’m really sorry. There is so much pressure in that house and at times you unconsciously say stuff you don’t mean,” she said.
She added that now that she had been evicted from the House, she would focus on her son, Nathan, expand her Addicted 2 Shoes brand and promote the new “Queen of Swagger- All Day Everyday” brand. She has also been offered movie roles in Nigeria, which she said she would take up.
Asked who she thought would likely win this year’s edition of BBA, Pokello said she would want her love interest Elikem to win though a lot of people have tipped Nigerian housemate Melvin. She further urged Zimbabweans to vote for him as he is also representing Zimbabwe, considering that he is now an “in-law”.
Pokello touches down at Harare International Airport today. Free transport to the airport will be provided for her fans at the National Art Gallery at 11am.
