He was the 1st male housemate to be unveiled on Saturday, 24th July and he is already warming his way into the hearts of the female housemates. 

Now let's talk about his life before the commencement of the show.

Boma Martins Akpore simply referred to as Boma, is a masseuse and mixologist.

He was born on 23rd January 1987.

Boma is a Nigerian by birth, an indigene of both Rivers state and Delta state.

Boma, an only child, was born and raised in Yaba, Lagos by his mother and grandmother. 


Boma Akpore has his primary and secondary school education in Lagos and sadly had to make ends meet for himself to go through school.

He then went to the University of Lagos to get his degree, but unfortunately, he had to drop out in his final year at the University as he couldn’t pay the bills on time.

Being a dude with an unrelenting positive approach to life, Boma saved up enough money from his side hustlings to enroll in a movie school where he graduated with good grades.


Boma is a talented actor, and is on the set of NBC’s popular series, Blacklist.

Boma has worked with a number of superstars ranging from Hollywood to Nollywood and has also appeared as a video vixen in a music video.


He is also a professional model and started his modeling career in 2003.

He was the youngest model to grace the runway of the Nigerian Fashion Week in 2004. 

London came calling in 2008 as Boma emerged as the only Male Model for Music from West Africa to participate in The Runway Charity Fashion Show.


Boma is not only an actor, a model, mixologist and masseuse but also a footballer.

Boma Akpore made a dive for football in 2011.

He played soccer for the New York Irish Rovers and won the league cup in Long island Football League Division, 2012. 

Taking his football skills to the next level, he traveled to Belgium in 2013. 

But however, he could not continue due to injuries and inability to get a work permit.

Boma is the first BBNaija Shine ya eye housemate to get verified on Instagram. He became verified even before he entered Big Brother's house.
