Recently evicted Big Brother Naija housemate, Boma, has revealed that he has been receiving death threats ever since he got evicted from the reality television show.
The young man began to receive a huge backlash from lovers of the show when he got involved in an intimate relationship with a fellow contestant, Tega, who is married with a child. Viewers of the show frowned at their relationship which many believed was sexual.
Ever since their eviction, both Boma and Tega have maintained that they played out a ‘script’ while in the house. Moreso, in several interviews, they have apologised to Nigerians for the way they ‘played the game’.
In a chat with Classic FM on Monday, Boma said he’s been getting “death threats” since he came out of the show, adding that he feels like the most hated guy in Africa.
“Coming out to death threats and all kind of crazy things; it was bad. 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,” he said.
