pruned adenium sprouting from below ground?

Hi all,

I pruned my adenium for the first time 10 days ago. It's rebranching from two nodes, but there's also sprout coming up from below the soil level. Is this normal/healthy?

I've had the plant for 1.5 years and it was repotted right before I took it home but not since then.

Thanks for any insight!

If the plant is a grafted plant then I would definitely pinch out the growth from base when large enough to do so.
I would still pinch out if seed grown.

It's not grafted, but I'll pinch it. Thanks!
