In June 2019, Tacha was announced as one of the housemates for Big Brother Naija (season 4), which was held in Lagos, Nigeria and premiered on 30 June 2019. [3][4] In October 2019, after her exit from the house, she signed a management deal with Billz vizion and in December 2019, she announced her departure from the management.[5][6] Tacha became brand ambassador to House of Lunettes.[7] She also signed an ambassadorship deal with GetFitng.[8][9][10]

While in the Big Brother Naija house, she had an altercation with a fellow housemate named Mercy Eke[11][12] which led to her disqualification from the show.[13][14] Tacha apologized to her fans.[15]


On February 5th 2020, Tacha took to her social media to share the 'launch of a project tagged “Pad for Every Girl” (PEG)’, where her and her team visited Government Girls secondary school, Rumuokwuta, Port Harcourt, donating sanitary pads to every female student in the school.[16][17]
