The first housemate introduced to the Big Brother Naija, BBNaija 2021 season, Boma Akpore has recorded a remarkable achievement a few hours after the reality TV show kickstarted. Aside from being the first housemate to be introduced.
Boma has recorded a rare achievement as the first housemate to be verified on Instagram, a feat attained by the winner of the season 5 Lockdown edition, Olamilekan Agbeleshbioba, also known as Laycon.
EveryEvery.ng observed a fast rise in the number of IG users following the BBNaija season 6 housemate, a few hours after the show started on Saturday, July 24.
The actor was born and raised in Lagos, but he is an indigene of both Rivers and Delta States; Boma started his stellar modelling career before being chosen for a campaign with one of Africa’s largest telecommunication networks.
He took part in the Nigerian Fashion Week 2004 as the youngest model to grace that runway before he later modelled for some of Africa’s top designers, including JD 7, Adedakare Couture and Emmy Collins.
His elegant looks indeed introduced him as the model that he is. You will recall that Laycon became the first BBNaija season 5 lockdown edition to be verified on the social media platform.
Former BBNaija housemates usually get their Instagram and Twitter accounts verified while in the house or months after the show, but his case is different. He has also enjoyed supports from many celebrities who have taken to social media platforms to throw their weight behind him.
