Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) reality star and media personality, Tacha, has explained why she called rappers Blaqbonez and Odumodublvck “upcoming artistes” on the last episode of the Big Friday Show With Tacha on Cool FM, Lagos.

Recall that Tacha was heavily criticised for calling Blaqbonez, Odumodublvck and Shallipopi “upcoming artistes” during her Big Friday Show.

Responding to the criticisms, Tacha explained that referring to music stars as “upcoming artistes” was not out of disrespect.

She stated, “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…”
