Zimbabwe Socialite and Shoe Businesswoman Pokello Nare is trending on social media after she attended popular businessman and Harare socialite, Tazvi Mhaka’s birthday celebrations held last weekend on a yacht in Cape Town, South Africa. Mhaka, popularly known as Chief J, a close associate of Wicknell Chivayo and Genius “Ginimbi” Kadungure, has courted controversy in the past as he is reported to be a womaniser yet he is married. From time to time, Chief J, who was in Bulawayo recently with Chivayo, is seen at several functions with Pokello and model Jacqueline Ngarande whom he refers to as his sisters, something others think is a mere cover up. And now, having Pokello attend his 39th birthday party in a foreign land without her husband Elikem has left some wondering if Pokello is of loose morals. The boat party was exclusive to Chief J’s close friends including Ginimbi, Uncle Roland, Ruvheneko Parirenyatwa, Ngarande and SA-based Nazir Lambat among others who had all been invited on the businessman’s tab. While the clique clearly had fun at the lavish party, social media users who watched them posting images decided to comment and share their views
“She is the self-declared Queen of Swagger and also known as the Queen of Shade for her ability to publicly criticize people who provoke her on social media. On Friday morning however, former Big Brother Africa star Pokello Nare met her match in UK based socialite Taka Chivore
Social media exploded after Chivore posted a status update that appeared to annoy Pokello. It appears Pokello only read the post on Friday, but her response torched the exchanges.
“Zim folk vaye vanoti he’s my brother vaye vanoti she’s my sister we are just frenz just to let you know we know you are banging ukangonzwa vachiti frend frend kudii ziva ndivana team yekedero they just can’t declare their activities coz they belong to someone else takukuzivai Although Chivore did not mention anyone by name, the weekend before Pokello, who is married to Ghanaian tailor and fellow Big Brother Africa former contestant ElikemKurmodzie, was pictured in Cape Town, South Africa on a yacht party hosted by businessman and socialite Tazvi Mhaka
Pokello’s husband was not there. Other guests included Radio and TV personality Ruvheneko Parirenyatwa, Pokello’s friend Jackie Ngarande and flamboyant businessman and party animal Genius Ginimbi Kadungure among other guests who were aboard the yacht.
It appears Pokello concluded the post by Chivore was targeted at her and the subsequent war of words went viral attracting over 9000 comments excluding replies.
