Tacha has been disqualified from the 2019 Big Brother Naija reality show, following the ealier physical confrontation with Mercy on Friday.
It all began when Seyi called Mercy to come out to the lounge so they can read Biggie’s scroll.
But Mercy who had her bath came out late for the reading. This, however, provoked Tacha who rained insults at her.
Tacha said, ”You are a moron, remain there and don’t come out. clout chaser, old woman, you keep using your body to get everything you want. You have been using Ike to get what you want. You can’t stand eviction that is why you need Ike to help you.”
Mercy replied, ”You are very stupid, you Instagram beggar. Go and treat your body odour before you talk to me, you stink. At least, I have a boyfriend (Ike) to get me what I want. What have your boyfriend done for you?”
During the argument, Tacha pushed Mercy and also dragged her weave twice, while Mercy who struggled to control her anger picked up a pressing iron but was stopped by Omoshola.
However, this could lead to disqualification or a strike from the organizers of the show as housemates have been warned against violence in the house.

Musician, Johnson Oyindamola, popularly known as Dammy Krane, risks three years in jail as the Zone 2 Police Command is set to arraign him on Monday, The Punch is reporting.
A copy of the charge sheet obtained by the paper showed that Dammy Krane will be arraigned on three counts before an Igbosere Magistrate Court in Lagos bordering on threat to life, defamation and conduct likely to cause breach of peace.
According to the document marked B/56/2019, the musician threatened the lives of staff members of betting company Merrybet Gold Limited on July 25, 2019 and also released a song in which he accused the firm of breach of contract.
The act is said to be in contravention of sections 301, 412 and 168 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2015.
The musician was also accused of conspiring with others at large of conducting himself in a manner likely to cause breach of peace and threat to life in contravention of Section 412 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2015.
Dammy Krane was also said to have threatened public peace when he posted an audio and video message on radio in contravention of Section 168(d) of the state’s criminal law.
The charges read in part, “That you, Johnson Hunga Oyindamola and others at large on the 29th day of July, 2019 at Cool FM in the Lagos magisterial district did conspire amongst yourselves to commit felony to wit: conduct likely to cause breach of peace and threat to life and thereby committed an offence punishable under Section 412 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2015.”
Another charge read, “That you, Johnson Hunga Oyindamola and others at large on the same date, time and place in the aforementioned magisterial district did threaten the life of the staff of Merrybet Gold Limited and thereby committed an offence punishable under Section 301 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2015.”
Section 301 of the state’s criminal law states that any person who, with intent to extort or gain anything from any person; accuses or threatens to accuse any person of committing any felony or misdemeanour, or of offering or making any solicitation or threat to any person as an inducement to commit or permit the commission of any felony or misdemeanour is guilty of a felony, and liable to imprisonment for three years.
It was learnt that the musician got into trouble after Merrybet Gold Limited wrote a petition to the police accusing the musician of threats and cyberbullying.
In a petition titled, ‘Petition against Mr. Oyindamola Johnson Emmanuel aka Dammy Krane for false and libellous statement against Merrybet Gold Limited and signed by its lawyer, Nwabueze Anachebe, the betting firm said the musician perpetrated cyberbullying and criminal defamation.
The musician was said to have attended a game show sponsored by the betting company but lost.
However, Dammy Krane was said to have demanded some money for appearing on the show but the firm disagreed, insisting that the sum is only given to winners.
The embittered musician subsequently went on the radio where he accused the betting firm of owing him money and breaching a contractual agreement.

Controversial on-air-personality, Ifedayo Lucian Olarinde, aka, Daddy Freeze, has said that operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad should start arresting Nigerians who engage in praying for their enemies to die.
“SARS need to start arresting people praying for their enemies to die by fire and begin charging them for attempted suicide,” Freeze wrote on Saturday via his verified Instagram handle, daddyfreeze.
One would have thought that Daddy Freeze meant to say that praying for one’s enemies to die was “attempted murder,” rather than “attempted suicide,” but Daddy Freeze said the action was attempted suicide because it was proof that Nigerians hate one another.
“We are, by a wide margin, our own worst enemies,” Freeze wrote.
Some of his Instagram followers didn’t share his view, though.
Someone fires back: “ch.ristian3123: 1corinthians 2 Vs 14 that’s what you are.” Meanwhile, I Corinthians 2:14 states: “The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them.”
Someone accused him of selling Nigerians cheap: “There is a page on instagram run by a Ghanaian lady that always post bad things about Nigerians. If there is any negative thing about Nigeria, we will post it and there will be making fun of Nigeria. Calling us poor people, thieves, haters etc. It’s been going on for a very long time. But you promote Ghanaians and not knowing how Ghanaians hate Nigerians. The page is aba_the_great1 . Check it yourself and see the hate.” —Efejohnson3
However, one follower shares Freeze’s view: “The stupidity is that all these useless prayers doesn’t work (sic) ..instead, the enemy will still kill them…they have been praying for Buhari to die,what happened? —Ezesolo

US pop star Ariana Grande has sued fashion retailer Forever 21 for using her trademark style to promote its products without her permission, including adverts featuring a “look-alike model.”
Grande is seeking $10 million over claims the brand, and its spin-off cosmetics line Riley Rose created an online campaign with striking similarities to her music videos, such as “7 Rings,” from late last year.
The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles district court Monday, claims the campaign was intended to trick consumers into believing Grande had endorsed Forever 21’s youth-oriented products.
“Even a single social media post by Ms Grande can garner fees of several hundred thousand dollars, and her longer-term endorsement arrangements command fees in the millions of dollars,” it said.
Grande has 163 million Instagram followers, making her the most-followed woman on the photo- and video-sharing social media platform.
Images from Forever 21’s Instagram account cited by the lawsuit showed a model wearing purple camouflage clothing and a pink headband and boots similar to those worn by Grande in the “7 Rings” music video.
The images appear to have been taken down from the company’s social media accounts.
A Forever 21 statement denied the allegations, adding that the fashion firm has “worked with (Grande’s) licensing company over the past two years.”
“We are hopeful that we will find a mutually agreeable resolution and can continue to work together in the future,” it added.

The 29-year-old police officer is said to be on unpaid leave from the Lambert Station where she has been working since 2015 as a PC.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, the Met said Khafi’s request to take part in the reality show had been declined and that the Directorate of Professional Standards (DPS) in London would investigate the situation.

The Federal Government has promised to bring sanity into the social lives of citizens and stop the debasement of humanity and the pride of Nigerian women by making scapegoats of some persons.
The government was reacting to the controversial music video by a popular musician, Augustine Kelechi, aka Tekno, with scenes of four semi-nude women dancing in a moving van on the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge in Lagos.
The artiste, in the four-minute video, was seen throwing money suspected to be dollars at the young women.
The government expressed disappointment that despite ongoing investigations into the anomaly, Tekno went ahead to release the offensive video.
In the official music video for the song, ‘Agege,’ which was released on Thursday, Tekno was seen in the moving van performing to the camera with the half-clad women dancing seductively.
A statement on Sunday by the Director General, National Council for Arts and Culture, a parastatal of the Federal Ministry of Information and Culture, Segun Runsewe, said Tekno would be made a scapegoat “to teach others a serious lesson.”
According to him, the NCAC is committed to exposing proponents of such kind of offensive sights and videos in Nigeria, while security agencies will be briefed to place Tekno on their watch list, “because his conduct is a threat to national security.”
Runsewe said he got hundreds of telephone calls and SMS from Nigerians, both at home and in the Diaspora, who queried why such immorality would be allowed in the country.
He stated, “We commend the police for arresting Tekno for the shameful misconduct. The same person, who was granted bail on health grounds has gone ahead to release the controversial video. We are now warning him to desist from this shameful conduct, which is not part of our culture.
“No single person is bigger than Nigeria; whether he likes it or not, we are going to use him as a scapegoat to send strong signals that this government does not tolerate nonsense and immorality, but discipline, which is our moral principle.
“Since the offensive Tekno scam video came to the limelight, I have received hundreds of telephone calls and SMS from Nigerians at home and others in the United Kingdom, United States, Canada and other parts of the world querying why such anomalies would be tolerated in Nigeria.
“Now that he has released the shameful video when investigation is still ongoing, we are going to inform security agencies to place him on their watch list, because his action is a threat to national security and a bad influence on Nigerian youths.
“We are committed to exposing proponents of this kind of offensive sights and videos. We warn that nudity is not part of our culture and should not be tolerated. The Federal Government will henceforth fish out clubs for nude dancers across the country for their promoters to face prosecution.”
Section 134 (a) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015, stipulated that an indecent act in a public place would make both parties engaging in the act liable to imprisonment for two years.
Section 136 also states that any person, who commits any act of gross indecency with another person in public, commits an offence and is liable upon conviction to three years imprisonment.
