Ghanaian actor and fashion designer, Elikem Kumordzie has opened up about his divorce with ex-wife Pokello Nare after several years.
Tailor and actor, Elikem Kumordzie, has taken to Instagram to share lessons he learnt after being in a marriage and subsequently getting divorced.
According to him, immaturity on his path was the main reason the marriage to the Zimbabwean collapsed after two years.
Elikem in June 2015 married Pokello Nare from Zimbabwe whom he had met on season eight of the Big brother Africa reality show.
Elikem later proposed marriage to Pokello live on the stage of the Ghana Music Awards.
The two had a son but got divorced later in 2018.
While sharing his story, the celebrated tailor said people in relationships facing challenges tend to focus more negatives than the positive things they have and continue to achieve.
Elikem explained that highlighting good milestones and good things in the relationship helps the couple grow while they handle the ugly side.
“When you draw on the bad you only bring more bad,” he said.
Elikem Kumordzie added, he only realises now that he probably was not ready for marriage at the age he tied the knot with Pokello although he was in love and fully committed.
“At the time of marriage, I was 26 – 27 and had not understood the concept of marriage because I was young but she might have more experience because she was 29 by then”, he said.
He also blamed the collapse of the marriage on long distance.
“I don’t remember too well why we fell off but I think it has to do with long distance. There was this long period of time where things just went off. She has to be there [Zimbabwe] and I have to be here [Ghana ] and we just fell off”, he added.
