Big Brother Naija reality tv star Boma recently shared a testimony about overcoming illnesses and Covid-19. Boma Akpore, a BBNaija season 6 housemate, wrote a lengthy letter of testimony about how he overcame infections and COVID-19.

Boma shared his tale about surviving the coronavirus after he contracted the infectious disease in December 2020 on his Instagram page. He wrote:


In 2020 December 2, I caught COVID-19 which led to me to having a terrible sinus infection. Prior to then I have never had any sinus issues for more than 3 days.

Then I got extremely busy going from One film set to another in the US, then I came to Nigeria and stayed for another 6 months due to being on big brother naija and other press duties I had to attend.

Afterwards I decided to return home to New York, all these while the sinus issue hasn’t given me any relive almost 1 year after. I decided to see an allergist and between January and March 2021, I have had multiple doctors appointments and test which the scan results came back very unpleasant. Half of my right face/nostril was blocked and I was only breathing from my left nostril. At this stage I wake up with mucus from my right nostril every single day.

At this point , my only option was to have a surgery as recommended by my Doctor. Surgery date was set for April 12. Suddenly I booked a movie role in Nigeria and shooting starts April 8, my team and I decided to postpone the surgery till after the shoot. While I was in Nigeria the reunion date was also set, so I killed both birds with 1 stone. As soon as the last episode was shot I took the next flight back to NYC May 7, to prepare for my surgery May 13.

Doctor said the infection had already spread to the back of my head and I was told I could get blind or have brain damage has it was a head surgery really close to the brain and I got was extremely scared. The surgery started at 6.30am and was due to be done 12pm, but I couldn’t wake up for another 3 1/2 hours, mehnnn, everyone was scared.

I just want everyone to thank God for my life. After 2 months I’m back in the gym, 6th slide was me working out yesterday July 20th 2022 and ready to work again. God is good.

I want to urge everyone to always check in with your doctors when having an usual feeling or sickness. Health is wealth!

PS: The grey area on the scan photo is the blocked part of my Face/Nostril

Big thanks to my friends and loved ones that took care of me when I was sick, May almighty God meet you at your point of needs 🙏🏾”
