The 34-year-old Boma was raised by his single mother and grandmother. He grew up on the streets of Yaba in Lagos. Boma had a difficult childhood, having 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. His life turned around when he managed to save enough money to pay for film school, an achievement that was subsequently eclipsed by his graduation.
Despite his great physique, Boma did not go looking for sugar mummies, instead he worked as a bartender by night, and a masseuse by day. In spite of this, Boma hopes his acting career would be able to pay his bills in the nearest future.
Also worthy of note is the fact that Boma was once married. Source: Boma IG
Despite all Boma has overcome in his more than three decades on earth, one would think that Big Brother Naija viewers would see him as a survivor and keep him longer in the house but that was not so.

Nigerians do not take such relationships for granted. Little wonder Boma and Tega got fewer votes that earned them eviction.
Although Boma has apologised for his actions, it is not known if the public will ever forgive him especially because he was aware he was dealing with a married woman on live TV.
This was his apology posted on Twitter shortly after his eviction on Sunday, “You have to make mistakes to find out who you aren’t. You take the action, and the insight follows. You don’t think your way into becoming yourself. I take full responsibility for my actions and I am sorry. It can only get better from here.”Source: Boma IG
Tega, on the other hand, could still find mercy from Big Brother Naija viewers and the general public, considering her husband had cheated on her.
Tega has already said she missed her husband and son and that she was only friends with Boma. That could also help pacify the public.
