Video: Why I called Blaqbonez, Odumodublvck ‘upcoming artistes’ – Tacha
Big Brother Naija star and radio presenter Tacha has clarified her comments regarding popular rappers Odumodublvck, Blaqbonez, and Seyi Vibez, whom she referred to as up-and-coming artists. The clarification comes after Tacha faced backlash on social media for her initial comments during an episode of her Big Friday program on Cool FM.
In a video response, Tacha explained that labeling the trio as “upcoming artists” was not meant to be condescending. During the program, when CDQ was asked about rising artists he liked, he mentioned Majeed and Badboy Timz. Tacha, in an attempt to remind him, mentioned Blaqbonez, Odumodu, and others.
In her defense, Tacha stated that her intention was not to undermine the talent or achievements of these artists but rather to highlight and appreciate their growth and increasing recognition in the industry.
The clarification aims to address any misunderstandings that may have arisen from her initial comments and emphasize her support for the mentioned artists.
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…”.
