It’s just a few hours into season 6 of Big Brother Naija ‘Shine Ya Eye’ camp and already, some housemates have become favourites of fans and viewers. One of these housemates is Boma Akpore.
Here’s something interesting about Boma Akpore. He’s a masseuse and mixologist and it seems he’s going to win the ultimate prize just as Laycon did. Let’s see what happens.
“Raised by his single mother and grandmother, 34-year-old Boma grew up on the streets of Yaba in Lagos. He describes his childhood as “extremely tough”, having had to pay his way through school. One of the hardest decisions he had to make was to drop out in his final year, as he couldn’t make ends meet, but his life’s high point came when he saved enough money to pay for film school, an achievement that was subsequently eclipsed by his graduation.
Boma describes himself as “sexy, intelligent, adventurous, strong and fit”, and considers himself “extraordinary”. While hustling on his acting career, he makes ends meet by working as a bartender by night, and a masseuse by day.
Having suffered bouts of depression after his marriage failed and after suffering an injury during football try-outs, he is determined “never, ever, to give up” and holds onto his faith”.
