Socialite Pokello Nare warmly known as the Queen of Swagger has unveiled that her three-year marriage to Ghanaian on-screen character and style planner Elikem Kurmodzie was expected to demonstrate a point that she was still “spouse material” regardless of her embarrassments.
She made the comments on Friday at the University of Zimbabwe amid an official dispatch of She Roars Brand, a program intended to engage young ladies, where she was one of the visitor speakers said Pokello.
She added that such mistakes have led her to realise that it is of paramount importance for women to pursue their careers and money whilst in their 20s instead of chasing marriage.
“We do not need to prove or validate anything to anyone. What you need to do is focus on your careers, making money and happiness.
“Society teaches young women that getting married is the ultimate accomplishment and achievement. Young women have no business getting married in their 20s because you married men who do not comply with your spirit, careers and dreams.
During the same presentation, she pleaded with young women to never give men the liberty to determine their destinies.
“Stop giving men the power to define your destiny. I am such a feminist and a major advocate for independent young women,” she said.
Since divorcing with Elikem whom she shares a son with, Pokello has been dating Ronald Muzambe popularly known as Rondon for over a year now.
