Tacha, the recently disqualified housemate of the ongoing Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) reality show, has finally addressed her fans whom she refers to as “Tacha Titans” as well as Nigerians.
Naija News recalls that Tacha was disqualified from the show by Biggie on Friday night for breaking the House rules following her fight with another housemate, Mercy.
While Tacha was disqualified from the show for violence, Mercy, on the other hand, was issued two strikes for provocation.
Addressing Titans and Nigerians in a statement on the micro-blogging site, Twitter on Saturday morning, Tacha said the disqualification was not how she planned to exit the show, adding that she would, however, use this time to heal and work on her “emotional health.”
The statement reads as thus: “Dear Titans, Words cannot readily express how much your love and acceptance means to me at this point. Even my imperfection could not sway your support. Thank you, Thank you and Thank you.
“Coming out of the Big Brother House disqualified was never my intention. Unfortunately, my weakness played against my strength and cut short what should have been a grand ending, with or without the prize.
“I sincerely apologize for every action on my part that led to this point and I take full responsibility for it all. I’m an adult and ought to be in control of my emotions, but I’m human and I failed time and again. Please forgive me. I sincerely wanted to make it to the 99th day.
“The fight to be seen and heard takes its toll on every one of us irrespective of where, when or how it comes. What counts is what we make out of a seemingly ugly situation. On my part, I know I need to work on my emotional health…That’s a fact as I’ve become conscious of it now.
“Being on this show has shown me that I am not just a work in progress but I have the chance to become a better me on all fronts if I give myself the chance to heal. And this I promise to give due diligence. So for what you have been to me, I heard some of you even cried and held vigil for me. I cannot thank you enough. You all became my mother, friends, and family and this means so much to me right now.
“Your prayers, time and resources spent to push me through to this point cannot be quantified in any form, but i sincerely thank you from the depth of my heart. Against the odds, you all are the reason why I stand and remain hopeful that everything will fall into place, that I can make it through this storm and come out on the sunny side in time.
“I will be taking some time off to recuperate, but my social media official handles are open and I can be reached there for now. Thank you, Titans, Thank you to everyone worldwide who supported me privately and openly, Thank you, Africa, Thank you Nigeria!!
“I saved the best for the last. Thank you to the organizers of the Big Brother Nigeria show, it may not have ended as I hoped and wanted, but it gave me the opportunity to rise.
“It was worth it still and for this reason, I am very grateful. Biggie, Thank you! Thank you too Ebuka! God bless you all ~ Natacha Akide,” Tacha’s statement added.
