#NoComment: Tacha said “nothing,” yet it echoed aloud

If you are a red-blooded Nigerian, you are no doubt familiar with the love we have for Grass to Grace stories. While this is not necessarily a Nigerian thing, we are in the habit of stretching our admiration for this sort of thing to the extreme. We aggressively celebrate people who apparently came from nothing and made something of themselves. This has been the underlying plot for the love Tacha’s fans have for her.

From humble beginnings to celebrity status; Titans have for the longest time clinged unto the fact that the love for their Queen is tied to her continuous growth, not just in affluence but in character. And to some of these overzealous supporters; during the Big Brother Reunion show yesterday, they got another demonstration of her growth.

The words ‘No Comment’ have become a trend following the events of last night’s episode.

Mercy raised the issue of Tacha’s friendship with her in and out boyfriend- Ike. She said she found their relationship disrespectful, reaffirming that Tacha and Mercy may not have completely settled their differences. Ike in explaining himself blamed what she feels, on the constant online battle between fans of Tacha and Mercy. He stated that the statement of her fans makes her internalise a false narrative and feel disrespected.

But when Ebuka asked Tacha to speak on the issue, she said she had no comment, and no matter how Ebuka tried to coerce a response from her, she stood her ground refusing to justify “Mercy’s paranoia.”

Fans of the ex-housemate have interpreted her response as a sign of maturity. The fact that she desists from starting a drama over something that doesn’t seem worth it is an action that has earned a lot of applause online. As is typical of Tacha fans, anything they do, they do loudly.
