Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, host of the Big Brother (BBNaija) has opened up on Tacha’s disqualification from the ‘pepper dem’ reality show.
The rift between Tacha and Mercy led to the former’s disqualification from the show.
While recently speaking on Tacha’s disqualification, Ebuka in an interview with Beat FM, said the self-acclaimed ‘Portharcourt first daughter was bound to be disqualified, even before she pulled Mercy’s hair.
The BBNaija host revealed that Tacha was already done for disqualification when she pushed and shoved Mercy, her disqualification was already done.
In her words, he said; ”When Tacha shoved and pushed Mercy, I think that was when it was done, even before the hair-pulling.
” I am talking about the fight that started at the kitchen. Big Brother had called them to the kitchen to simmer down the situation, but the fight got even worse.
”So way before the hair was pulled, there was already contact. With violence like that, it is hard to say, because Big Brother is very clear on that. You don’t put your hands on someone. If you allow a shove and push, tomorrow it becomes a punch.”
While speaking on why Mercy was not disqualified, Ebuka said; ”I don’t know. Like I said, I don’t make these decisions. But what Mercy did was flip her hair, which you could see was contact, but there are other sides to it.
”Like was it intentional? I don’t know. Was it physically going to harm her? I don’t know either.
”I don’t know what the reason was for not disqualifying Mercy as well but she got two strikes. I guess that’s what they felt the weight of what she did carried.”
