Boma Akpore, the recently evicted housemate of the Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) season six, says he is “the most hated guy in Africa” following his ouster from the reality show.
Boma was sent packing from the show alongside three other housemates — Peace, Michael, and Tega — on Sunday.
While in the house, he developed an intimate relationship with Tega, who is married with one kid, and the affair drew a lot of outrage from the show’s fans.
The social media team of the reality TV star had to defend Boma from the backlash.
In a chat with Classic FM on Monday, Boma said he’s been getting “death threats” since he came out of the show.
He also maintained that the duo was “just acting” and the relationship ended once they left the house.
“Coming out to death threats and a kind of crazy things. It was bad,” Boma said.
“I didn’t know how much I was loved at first since I came and won the head of the house. People thought I was a strong contender. But I just thought I was going to be out in a couple of weeks. I’ve never been through that kind of experience before, and I already had a couple of things under my belt before I came into the house, and I felt like Nigerians won’t relate with me.
“I didn’t even know people love me that much until I got close to Tega, and we were acting. The fact that it’s a reality show doesn’t mean I brought all my reality on screen. I saw cameras all the time. But coming outside, I knew I was out. I feel like I’m the most hated guy in Africa right now. It was bad, and my mom was crying.”
