BBNaija star, Boma and Tega's husband, Ajeboh, all smiles as they hang out (video)

BBNaija star, Boma and former housemate, Tega Dominic’s husband, Ajeboh, hung out last night September 30.

Boma and Tega made news after they had an amorous affair while in the BBNaija house, and were criticised by viewers of the show. While some dragged Tega for being with a man other than her husband, others slammed Boma for having an affair with a married woman.

However weeks after the pair were evicted from the show, Boma and Tega’s husband,  Ajeboh, were all smiles as they hung out with businessman, Ubi Franklin and another former housemate, Jaypaul.

When people tell me I had sex in the house, I’m like wow, for any reason that show is rated 18 - BBNaija’s Tega

Reality star, Tega has reacted to the never-ending accusation that she had sex on the Big Brother Naija show

Tega has fired back at those insisting that she had sex before her eviction from the Big Brother Naija House. She had subsequently denied ever having sex with fellow housemate, Boma since she was evicted.

According to the reality show star, she always points out that the show is rated 18 whenever she is being told such. Tega added that maybe the show should be rated 41 because some people “reason with their eyes and not their head.”

Tega was evicted at the end of the 6th week alongside Boma, Peace and Michael
