Big Brother Naija reality show star and on-air personality, Natacha Akide, popularly known as Tacha, clarifies her remarks about rappers Blaqbonez and Odumodublvck being “upcoming artistes”.

She made the clarification during her appearance on the last episode of the Big Friday Show With Tacha on Cool FM, Lagos.

Tacha addressed the social media backlash in a video message, emphasizing that her choice of words was not meant to be condescending.

She further justified her statement by stating the meaning of ‘upcoming artiste’ via a search engine meaning.

“An episode from the Big Friday Show has gone viral and there’s no amount of insult I’ve not gotten. Everybody is saying, ‘Tacha called Blaqbonez an upcoming artiste. Tacha called Odumodublvck an upcoming artiste.’
