Tacha Replies Mercy’s Fan Who Mocked Her For Been Disqualified From BBNaija
Big Brother Naija Reality TV star, Natacha Ibinabo Akide, porpularly called Tacha, has dragged the life out of a troll.
Tacha replied the troll who doubles as Mercy Eke’s fan (he “supposed” rival) for mocking her after she was disqualified from the reality shown.
This happened after the Reunion show started last night, and as expected, fans are already coming for each other and housemates.
During the reunion show, they showed housemates participating in a facial expression saying how they feel about their fellow housemates, but Tacha was not shown.
According to her, she participated, but for some reason it was not shown. A fan of another housemate then mocked her saying it was because she was disqualified
“Better to be disqualified from a SHOW than to be out here in REAL LIFE chasing over a DISQUALIFIED HOUSE MATEs SHADOW. ”
