Boma Akpore, a former participant of Big Brother Naija, has expressed that his involvement in the reality show has turned him into a well-known figure not only in Nigeria but also internationally.
Prior to his appearance on BBNaija, Boma was already recognized as a model and actor in the United States.
However, due to his alleged romantic involvement with his fellow housemate Tega, who happened to be married, he faced criticism and ultimately got evicted.
During an interview at the recently concluded AMAA award in Lagos State, Boma shared that BBNaija has not only brought him popularity but also presented great opportunities for him.
“Participating in BBNaija gave me fame. You could be talented, and people wouldn’t still know your worth. But BBNaija made me a household name in the entertainment industry.
“It made it easier for people to connect and know what I do for a living.”
