Big Brother Naija Alumni, Boma Akpore, has shared his testimony following a near-death experience he had a couple of months ago.



In a recent post via his official Instagram page, Boma recounted how he contracted the deadly virus, COVID-19, which eventually resulted in a terrible sinus infection.

In the lengthy post, Boma shared how he nursed the infection that lasted longer than 3 days.

The controversial reality TV star noted that he was only breathing through his left nostril because half of his right face and nostril were covered.

His only option was to undergo surgery, which was scheduled for April of this year, but he also had a movie shoot in Nigeria and a BBN reunion that couldn’t be rescheduled.

See the full narration below.

My Testimony!!!
On December 2, 2020, I caught COVID-19, which led me to have a terrible sinus infection. Prior to that, I had 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 home to Nigeria and stayed for another 6 months due to being on Big Brother Naija and other press duties I had to attend to. Afterwards, I decided to return home to New York. All this time, the sinus hasn’t given me any relief, almost 1 year after.
I decided to see an allergist and between January and March 2021, I had multiple doctor's appointments and tests, and the scan results came back very unpleasant. Half of my right face/nose 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 the surgery as recommended by my doctor. The surgery date was set for April 12. Suddenly, I booked a movie role in Nigeria and shooting started. On 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 one stone. As soon as the last episode was shot, I took the flight back to NYC on May 7, to prepare for my surgery on May 13.
The 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 because it was a head surgery really close to the brain and I got extremely scared. The surgery started at 6:30am and was due to be done at 12pm, but I couldn’t wake up for another 3 1/2 hours. Everyone was scared.
I just want everyone to thank God for my life. After 2 months, I’m back in the gym. The 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 their doctor when having an unusual feeling or sickness. The grey area of the scan photo is the blocked part of my face and nostril. A big thanks to my friends and loved ones that took care of me when I was sick. May the Almighty God meet you at your point of need.
