Tailor and actor Elikem is single and hails from Accra. 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”.
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 says he’ll host a fashion fundraiser, open 3 retail stores in Accra – and 3 more abroad – as well as shoot a star studded movie before putting what’s left into investments and bonds.
