BBNaija Boma Opens Up On Romantic Affair With Tega (Video)




Former Big Brother Naija Housemate, Boma Akpore has finally opened up on his relationship with co-reality star, Tega Dominic which generated a lot of controversy on social media.

Recall that Tega Dominic was introduced at the Big Brother’s house as a married lady with a child and people got the impression that she would be a no-go area for her male colleagues.
