Juan Balboa Boneke (9 June 1938 – 10 March 2014) was an Equatorial Guinean politician[1] and writer.[2]

He was born in Rebola, Spanish Guinea[citation needed] and studied at the Escuela Superior de Santa Isabel and at La Escuela social de Granada. He was minister under Teodoro Obiang[1] until he dissented with the dictatorship's policies and went into exile, settling in Majorca, Spain (where his daughter María Concepción, a flamenco singer best known as Concha Buika was born), an exile from which he returned.[2]

Balboa Boneke died from renal problems, coupled with a three-year depression caused by the death of his wife, on 10 March 2014 in Valencia, Spain.[3]
