Troubled Elikem The Tailor pens Emotional Letter to his Son with Pokello

Elikem Kumordzie is obviously not happy about the divorce petition filed in court by his Zimbabwean wife from Big Brother Africa Pokello Nare. 

Their son Tristan is with the mother and as a result the fashion designer has written an open letter to the young boy and it is generally an advice.

Elikem has charged his “sweet boy” to spread kindness like wildfire, be brave and courageous, to be respectful and put God first.

He made this known in an Instagram post along with a photo of his son with Pokello Nare.

My dear sweet boy,
You are such a blessing to my life and I love watching you grow! You are just now beginning to show your amazing personality and I am so proud of the young man I see you becoming. You are more perfect than I could have ever dreamed. I knew from before I started having babies that one day I would have a son; I even had your name picked out!

Son, I wish I could change some of the harsh realities that have already happened in your young life. I wish we lived in a world where tragedy didn’t strike innocent children. But I can’t change the past and I can’t protect you from all the bad things, as much as I want to. The best I can do, son, is teach you and guide you to the best of my ability. As you grow, there are a few fundamental things I want you to cling to. Use them as your guide book, especially when life gets tough.

Your dad is the epitome of kindness. Everywhere I go and to everyone i meet, i spread kindness and laughter. Son, you have your Daddy’s same kind heart and compassionate nature. Hold on to that, even when life gets hard. The reason why your Daddy is so widely loved and admired is because he loved and admired everyone around him. Everyone deserves kindness, baby. Don’t be afraid to show it.

There will be times in your life where you’d rather hide or run or bury your head in the sand than face whatever challenge is in your way. I know because I’ve been there many times. In those times, be brave and show courage. But bravery and courage don’t have to come from you; in fact, it often doesn’t because we, as humans, struggle with the strong grip of fear. Often times it overwhelms us. When that happens, always call on God to give you courage and be brave. He will give you the strength you need to get through the battle.



My baby, you are far too young for any of this to mean anything to you right now. But I promise that one day you will need these bits and pieces of advice. Tuck them away in your heart and draw them out when you need them.
