Former Big Brother Naija ‘Pepper dem’ housemate, Tacha Akide, has been vocal about her absence from the ongoing All Stars show.
In a recent interview on Cool FM, she reiterated her stance that she cannot participate in the show without being paid by the organizers, emphasizing that she won’t compromise her brand just to entertain Nigerians.
Unwilling to Dilute Her Brand:
Tacha emphasized that if she is not compensated, she cannot water down her brand to provide a show for the audience.
She firmly stated that Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) cannot expect her to participate for free, making it clear that payment is a non-negotiable condition for her involvement in any future shows.
Tacha Declines All Stars Show Offer:
The reality star previously revealed the reason behind her decision to decline an offer to participate in the ongoing Season 8 All Stars show.
Responding to a co-reality star’s expression of disappointment at her absence, Tacha asserted that the show organizers could not afford her.
She playfully commented that her price had gone up, hinting that the financial compensation offered was insufficient for her to participate.
Trolling BBNaija Organizers:
Taking a dig at the BBNaija organizers, Tacha mocked the announcement of the All-Star show in a social media comment.
The brand’s advertisement banner mentioned giving former housemates a second chance in the house, prompting Tacha to liken it to a famous Telenovela movie called “Second Chance.”
Her comment humorously implied that the show’s offer of a second chance was not as enticing as it seemed.
Tacha Akide’s firm stance on being compensated for her participation in reality shows highlights the financial aspect of such ventures and the value that contestants bring to the programs.
While she expresses her refusal to dilute her brand without proper compensation, it remains to be seen how this perspective will influence her future engagements with BBNaija or other similar shows.
As the All Stars show continues without her, Tacha remains an influential figure, known for her bold personality and determination to protect her brand and career interests.
