“You got wind of that information but the only reason you couldn’t propel the house or push the house to my direction was because the light of suspicion will be on you as to how you got the information.

“So much so that on day 2 or day 3 after the announcement was made about widecards…prior to that …, White, on my very first day in this house, when all the [housemates] came in, shook hands and were happy and excited, you, White, you avoided my eyes.

“But that didn’t make sense to me until two day after Biggie had announced who the wildcards were. I know how you got that information. You got that information from outside and you should be scared how I knew you got it.”

His pursuit of a career in football led him across countries. He went from the United States to Belgium and finally to Poland where he played in a small club.

Later on, Boma travelled back to Belgium where he got in contact with an agent who tried to sign him to a club for the Scottish premiership.

“I usually don’t get injuries. If I’ll get injured, maybe muscular injuries at the gym or something. I kicked the floor and that muscle, that was it, men. I was trying. They injected me in that spot while I was in Scotland.

“I had to sign, I was already there, man. Despite the injection, the pain wouldn’t leave. Whether climbing the stairs or riding a bike, I felt it. I tried that week, I couldn’t. That injury just never left. In all my games, I couldn’t run well.

“Everyone including the agent was disappointed. It wasn’t my fault. That pushed me into serious, heavy depression. I still get messages in my inbox saying, ‘I didn’t believe you would leave football after everything you did’.”

Describing the period as a “defining moment” in his life, Boma said he lived seven months depressed in the United States.

“That injury was a career-ending injury. I packed my bag, left Scotland, and went back to Belgium to pack my other bag. I was back in the United States. 2017, March 8. That was the end of my career in football,” he added.

“My depression was bad. I would just wake up and sit on the floor. I’m not moving. Seven months. I didn’t want to do anything. My friend told me, ‘Bro, you can’t be living like this. There are people in Nigeria depending on you.’”
