Reality TV star, Tega Dominic, has again reiterated that she is a single mom and not married.
Tega revealed that she claimed to be married while on Big Brother Naija season 6 show because it was her strategy for the game.
She made this confession during the BBNaija reunion show which aired on Thursday night, saying that she already separated from her hubby before getting on the Big Brother Naija house.
She stressed that she wanted to use the marraige as strategy in the house, this was as she defended the romantic affair she had with Boma Akpore during the show.
There was a backlash from viewers of the show on the romantic relationship between Tega and Boma, with many chastising Tega for being romantically involved with a male housemate as a married woman.
“For a fact, I didn’t go into the show as married. I went in as separated. In all my interviews, I clearly stated it. I went in as separated,” Tega said.
However, Tega has cleared the air on her marital status, saying she lied about being married.
Tega added, “During our conversations and introductions, I just said well I’m married and I have a kid. That was supposed to be a strategy.
“Getting deep into the show, I then discovered that this was doing something great in a bad way to me.”
Speaking of her affair with Boma, Tega said, “To me, everything that was going on between me and Boma was all a cruise.”
During the reunion show, Boma also revealed that Tega told him her marriage had ended, so to him, he was dealing with a single woman.
