Sex tape puts Pokello in BBA limelight

It is widely believed Kim Kardashian launched herself into Hollywood limelight after a sex tape with William Ray Norwood Jr aka Ray J was leaked in 2007.

REPORT BY SILENCE CHARUMBIRA

She sued Vivid Entertainment who had released the video four years after it was recorded but eventually settled for an out of court settlement pocketing a staggering US$5 million.

Not much was known of Kim before the sex tape and interestingly, she has been strutting on the red carpets of Hollywood ever since.

Back home, a similar character is Pokello Nare, a socialite who was virtually unknown in Zimbabwe except by her peers, until a sex tape of her and singer Desmond “Stunner” Chideme was leaked onto the streets.

Various theories concerning the video have been peddled but what has remained a fact is that Pokello is now equally if not more popular than many local celebrities.

Her popularity earned her a place in Big Brother Africa The Chase show.

Now, the sex tape has been unleashed once again and it went viral on social networks last week attracting the attention of Big Brother viewers in the region and beyond.

The fact that her sex tape was leaked and reported in a local daily tabloid almost two years ago and and disappeared from the streets only to be released again when she entered the Big Brother house alone raises eyebrows.

Who published it and why now?

One of the most logical reasons could be that this is a most strategic time to garner support for the socialite.

Even her actions in the house seem to be pointing that direction with her famous booty dances that have attracted significant attention from viewers across the continent.

The first two weeks of the game have been a mixture of responses from the viewers of the game concerning Pokello’s involvement.

While some created Facebook accounts in support of her others have done exactly the opposite calling for her expulsion from the game.

A page against Pokello by the name “Bring Pornello Home” labels her a porn star who should not be in the house and encourages people to vote her out.

It is clear that Pokello has now attracted attention through the sextape making rounds in the region and internationally.

Could this attention help her get the popularity she needs to clinch the $300 000 cash prize?

When the sextape went viral last week, Pokello attracted viewers attention if the comments about her are anything to go by.

A number of her local supporters believe she can bring the money home.

“The sextape has made her popular. The issue of morality is hardly considered in Big Brother. She now has followers and she can make it,” wrote Vitalis Katsigwa on the Facebook page.

Another commentator Stanford Chitindingu said there was nothing wrong with Pokello’s sextape.

“Guys a lot of people have sex (and) it doesn’t make them bad people. It was only a mistake the tape got into the wrong hands let’s not judge [others] some of us we do worse.”

A comment against Pokello went: “She is a disgrace to our country and we should not be represented by such people. Wendall Parsons never got controversial to win the show, why should we support immorality.”

Meanwhile it remains to be seen if the other Zimbabwe representative Hakeem will survive eviction and remain in the house this week. If Hakeem returns home, all hope will be on Pokello.

      New stunts and pornography has its own place on pornsites and porn chanels and i dont think i becomes a favourite for winning big brother prize money because of how good tyey are in pornography elsewhere. That reality shoe is about strong characters who can last in a setup of strangers. The porn stunts certainly do make one a strong character to survive in a reality show. I dont like her a cent after watching that porn video where the twosome where having unprotected sex. Shame on Pornello

    We in matebeleland we started supporting multichoice since the day they launched dstv at that time you were loyal to your ztv and were were considered rebels who were anti zanu pf. wanted to be southafricans the sooner you opened your eyes in the late 2000 you hijacked multichoice and made it yours when big brother launched you made it a mashonaland only thing, since the day big brother was launced no one who has roots in Matebeleland be it A ndebele. Venda kalanga xhosa suthu tonga shangani has ever repesented zim in big brother. I wule okuthiwa ngu lionel dziva liketha abantu besitshabi kuphela forgetting we hve many tribes who deserve to represent zim and to date all zim housemates except wendell left a lot to be desired in big brother,liyasiyangisa mashona othuvi. Next year sifuna amandebele leminye imihlobo lapho endlini uma wena dziva ungakwenzanga lokho we will take the issue with the directors of multichoice to have zimbabwe reps or slot taken away because it does not represent zim mark my word we hve the capacity to do that . Remember last year we wanted to cause caos at big brother offices and you put another shonas maneta and teclar claiming they are from bulawayo. They stay there but they a still shonas. No to shona reps in big brother for the next two years give others a chance we can’t have zanu pf controlling big brother futseki. We will cause havoc in big brother trust me sekwanele. Multichoice is rich because of matebeleland support.

    Imi vanhu imi how did you deduce that she is whore wen sh only had sex with one person who was her BOYFRIEND at the tym. Shame on you for being too quick to judge with as little evidence as u have. Pokello’s tape was leaked by someone & that person is the bad person whose intentions was to assassinate Pokello’s character not Pokello. Its sex everybody does it. If you don’t you are the one with the problem

    Have you people even watched BBA? The contestants get drunk, fight and have SEX for africa to see so why would you want some virgin in there (if virgins still exist that is)
