Big Brother Naija star and radio presenter, Tacha, has cleared the air on why she addressed popular rappers, Odumodublvck, Blaqbonez and Seyi Vibez as up-and-coming artistes.
CorrectNG recalls that during an episode of her Big Friday programme on Cool FM, Tacha asked CDQ to name some of the rising artistes making waves that he likes.
The Hip Hop artiste mentioned Majeed and Badboy Timz, but Tacha tried to remind him by calling Blaqbonez, Odumodu and a few others.
The reality TV star, however, faced backlash on social media for her opinion, so she decided to defend herself in a new video response.
She explained in the trending clip that referring to the trio as “upcoming artistes” was not in any way condescending.
Tacha said, “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.’
“If I called them upcoming artistes, tell me, what is wrong with using the term upcoming artistes? I rushed to Google to see the meaning of the term upcoming musician: ‘Upcoming musicians are those singers that are no longer new because they have been around for some time and promising to make it big.’
“Now, how is me calling Blaqbonez an upcoming artiste me putting him down or being condescending? Blaqbonez is my guy, Odumodu is my guy, Shallipopi…”.
