Tacha Akide, a former housemate of the Big Brother Naija reality TV show 2019 edition, says she terminated her management contract with ‘BillzVizion’, a label owned by TeeBillz, talent manager, due to the latter’s inability to meet her expected targets.
TheCable Lifestyle had reported how the controversial TV star ended her management relationship with TeeBillz — giving no specific reason for the split up.
But in a chat with PUNCH, the Port Harcourt-based star said the duo had to part ways for the sake of her brand; since the talent manager could not meet her expectations.
“When one signs up with a management, one would have expectations and targets. However, it’s one thing to have expectations and it’s another thing to have the expectations turn to reality,” she said.
“Sadly, that didn’t happen, especially after the first month of being signed to a management. The drive I had and the drive they had didn’t match. I drew their attention to my concerns and also tried to manage the situation by being patient and hoping for a change.
“But, things got worse as time went on and after three months, I decided we should mutually disengage our business relationship for the sake of my brand.”
She also said her rise to fame has led to erosion of her privacy. Tacha added that it has taken a huge toll on her private life.
“Fame has robbed me of my privacy. My life now seems like it’s in the open and everyone keeps their eyes on my business round the clock,” she said.
In October, Tacha had announced TeeBillz, ex-husband of Tiwa Savage, Afrobeats vocalist, as her manager, after she was disqualified from the BBNaija house.
The reality star came to spotlight during her controversial stint at the house, which left many dramas including her face-off with Mercy Eke, the eventual winner of last year’s edition of the show.
The Future of Work, a data analytics; consulting; and training firm, had in its last year report, listed her among the most talked-about housemates of the ‘Pepper Dem’ edition — only bettered by Mercy, who emerged top of the chart.
