Boma Akpore, a former participant on Big Brother Naija, has emphasized that the reality show catapulted him into the limelight nationally and internationally.
Prior to his BBNaija stint, Boma, a model and actor based in the United States, faced eviction amid controversy surrounding his alleged romantic involvement with his fellow housemate Tega, who was married.
During an interview with journalists at the recently concluded AMAA awards in Lagos State, Boma shared that his experience on BBNaija had significantly elevated his public profile, providing him with newfound fame and opening doors to various opportunities.
“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.”
