Big Brother Naija former housemate, Tacha (Natacha Akide) has opened up on her life.

She said: “I was born and bred in Port Harcourt, Rivers State. I grew up in a family of four – two daughters and my parents. My dad is from Rivers State, while my mum is from Ghana.”

“I try not to pay attention to what people have to say about me. I would rather focus attention on myself. It is one thing for people to have what to say about one, and another thing for them to have the right thing to say about one.”

“As individuals, we can only control our narratives. Instead of concerning myself with what people say about me, I spend more time on myself and my brand.”

“I always love to find a good in all situations. It is either I am learning a lesson from it or, there is a reason it happened.”

“If something goes wrong today, I tell myself it is meant to be for something else to go right. There was one thing people did not know about me while in the Big Brother house.”

“I was never scared of eviction, because I believe every situation is a win-win. I am a big sweetheart. I am an introvert and I love my space.”

“I cannot go out the way I used to before. I cannot be like a regular person, except I am out of the country. Everywhere I turn to, it seems people know me there, and it does get overwhelming.”

“There are certain days when I don’t want to be Tacha. Even when I disguise sometimes, people still recognise me from my distinct voice.”

“Sometimes, I have to install voice-changing apps on my phone when I want to speak to someone and not sound like me.”

“Losing my mum is a moment I will never forget.”

“I will never dim my light for any man or relationship. If one wants something, one should go for it. If you are a man out there and you think you like Tacha, totally go for it. There is nothing stopping you.”
