Pokello-Elikem game

Pokello pregnancy rumours persist

The pregnancy rumours that have dogged Big Brother power couple Pokello and Elikem since their union last year have continued with media reports in Ghana alleging that the two had welcomed a bouncing baby girl in the new year.

The self proclaimed “Queen of Swag” and her tailor cum fashion designer husband have become the object of much speculation in Africa, where they have rapidly become one of the continent’s glamour couples since their much publicized hook-up on Big Brother Africa a few years ago.

The two, although reluctant lovers at first as they both chased the big cash prize on offer, nurtured their budding romance for the duration of their stay in the house before continuing it in earnest once they were outside.

Media reports in Ghana over the past week have suggested that the two had secretly had a baby, with unnamed sources saying this had been the reason for Pokello’s absence from her usually highly active social media page. The reports also attributed the alleged birth of the newborn as the reason for Elikem’s visit to Zimbabwe during the festive season.

The Zimbabwe DSTV page also added fire to the rumours, congratulating the two on the birth of their first born although it also questioned the authenticity of the news in the same post.

However, Pokello was back to her usual fiery self on social media this week, as she took to twitter to laugh off some of the rumours and speculation.

“Oh really?? Wow,” she wrote in response to a Ghanaian radio station’s twitter post announcing the birth of the duo’s first child.

“Where do u get the sh!t u write?,” she quizzed.

The rumours of Pokello’s pregnancy seem to have been sparked by her husband’s own social media activities last year.

The Ghanaian fashion icon has been flooding his social media feed with pictures of young children, leading some to conclude that his new obsession was because he is expecting a child of his own. The Ghanaian fashionista has continued his streak of posting pictures of toddlers this year.

A picture of a seemingly expectant Pokello, posted by the curvaceous diva herself on her Instagram page, only added fire to the rumours.
