Controversial Big Brother Naija star and social media sensation, Natacha Anita Ibinabo Akide, populalrly known as Tacha has opened up to Chude Jideonwo, founder of Joy, Inc., about her experience with fame and grief as well as her journey towards gaining self-confidence.
The Rivers born serial entrepreneur made some revelations on the latest episode of #WithChude.
Speaking on the personal attribute that solidified her position as a cultural icon, Tacha said:
“My self-confidence came from being disregarded by people. Right from childhood, I had always been in places where there were cliques I was never invited to. My mother made it her mission to help me stop wanting to feel validated by other people and to be okay with being by myself. She taught me how to let my happiness come from within.”
The social media sensation and serial entrepreneur who has since gained a massive following of more than 4 million ‘Titans’ across her social media platforms, revealed the human behind her brand – a part of her that goes beyond her steady rise to fame.
Tacha who lost her mother at 18, also discussed her approach to dealing with the loss and navigating her grief. “I am still not over it honestly. I wish she were here to see the confidence she had helped to build. When the memory returns I would either say a prayer or I let myself feel the pain and move on from it.”
