Pokello responds to hate comments about her weight gain

By Tatenda Marwodzi

Zimbabwean socialite and business mogul, Pokello Nare, came out guns blazing after a follower noted that she was gaining weight. The comment came after Pokello posted a picture of herself on her instagram page. As her followers were leaving compliments on the post, one @dreylicious decided to add “makusimbisa (you are gaining too much weight)”.

Pokello did not take the body shaming comment lightly and reminded the follower that she does not eat from the follower’s home. The queen of swagger is not new to critics and more often than not she chooses to ignore. However a few months back she admitted that some hate comments are so hurtful hence the responses.

Thankfully most of her fans had her back with one saying “I hate when weight gain is seen as not looking after yourself when for a lot of people it’s a sign that we are enjoying food, seeing our friends more, letting go of societal standards.”
