• While trying to Boma justify his action with co-reality star, Tega in Biggie’s House, Boma stressed that people are very hypocritical, even when it’s obvious they seem not to take marriage seriously in Nigeria.
Nigerian reality television star, Boma Martins Akpore, has insisted that majority of Nigerian married men, precisely 95 percent of them have mistresses.
Boma stated this during the Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eye Reunion, Day 11, (episode 11) on Thursday night, June 16. And he made this known, after the show host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu asked him what he would do better, if he’s given opportunity to go back to Big Brother Naija House, considering how the moment with Tega has defined him.
Ebuka asked, “So, let me start with you, and finally, looking back, right, and understanding what this has become. Fortunately, unfortunately, this is the show that one moment can define you, and it becomes a narrative”. Boma said, “Sadly yeah”.
Ebuka continued, “Because people won’t really forget everything and you become that guy who did this. What would you do differently”?
Responding to the question, Boma noted that he was a bit naive in the Biggie’s House, citing the fact that he didn’t play the Big Brother Naija game like a Nigerian. He was probably carried away by the American lifestyle.
“I was a bit naive. It’s my own time. I was just playing the game, not like a Nigerian would play the game. I wasn’t really thinking like that. I was kind of more free-spirited”, Boma opened up.
The reality TV star went further to emphasize on the fact that those who have been criticizing him about his intimate moment with Tega seem to take marriage seriously, when in actual sense, 95% of married men in Nigeria have girlfriends.
Boma said, “They try to act like we take marriage seriously, but 95 percent of married men in Nigeria have girlfriends”. Ebuka, looking shocked, exclaimed, “Heey! 95 (as he demonstrates the figure in the air)”. Boma continued, probably 98. I was thinking that people are free”.
Turning to the Housemates, Boma repeated, “98 percent of married men in Nigeria have girlfriends”. Ebuka laughed and asked Boma, “Where did you get this from”?. All these girls, all the things they’re buying are done by married men”.
Boma continued, “For me, I will just tell the guys, the society we’re in is very hypocritical, you have to be very careful, these people might judge you. You might do all great, good stuffs, one bad stuff will define your moment”.
