Elikem Kumordzie is a Ghanaian taylor and actor best known as one of the housemates on the eighth season of the reality competition television series Big Brother Africa, in 2013.
Big Brother Africa Profile
Elikem is single and hails from Accra. His favourite foods include unripe plantain and kontomire, his favourite book is Rich Dad, Poor Dad, and he enjoys the music of Bruno Mars.
On the silver screen, his favourite movies include Man on Fire and The Sound of Music. Denzel Washington and Samuel L Jackson are his favourite actors - the former because he’s bold, confident and a natural and the latter because “he has made the black man proud”.
His father played a big role in his life, because he came from a very poor background and hustled his way through school and returned to take care of his family. Elikem’s proudest achievement is completing his university degree after deferring a year and not wanting to return and finish.
Elikem entered Big Brother for three things: the money, the exposure and the game play. He says it’s great that Africa will be watching him 24/7 because he’ll get a chance to show the continent who he is and what he can do and promote himself as a tailor and actor.
He has grand plans for the big prize: he’ll host a fashion fundraiser, open 3 retail stores in Accra - and 3 more abroad - and shoot a star-filled movie before putting what’s left into investments and bonds.
