BBN Star Tacha Turns Heads At AMVCA 2023 With ₦9.2M Dress
Former Big Brother Naija housemate, Tacha Akide, known mononymously as Tacha, stirred up quite a storm on social media with her grand entrance at the 2023 Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA).
This year’s edition of the AMVCA took place at the Eko Hotel Convention Centre and Suites, located on Victoria Island, Lagos, with a parade of renowned personalities in the entertainment industry turning up in their glamorous attire.
Yet, the star that seemed to shine brightest was Tacha, as she walked the event’s black carpet in a dress worth a staggering $20,000 (roughly ₦9.2m). The dress, a sequenced royal blue masterpiece, was designed by popular celebrity designer Tolu Bally.
In a social media post during the event, Tacha confidently declared, “Everybody looks AMAZING on the BLACK CARPET TODAY!!! BUT we all know Nobody comes close!!!” Her statement alluded to the fact that while others may have looked good, she was, without doubt, the standout of the event.
In the same vein, Tacha went a step further by providing evidence of her dress’s cost by sharing a receipt on her social media platforms. This move was presumably to assert the authenticity of her claim about the dress’s price tag, which had sparked a flurry of reactions among netizens.
The revelation of the cost of her dress elicited mixed reactions from social media users. While some were left in awe of the opulence and Tacha’s ability to splurge such an amount on a dress, others questioned the veracity of the claim. A section of the online community also pondered whether the dress was worth the exorbitant price tag.
The 9th edition of the AMVCA, being a premier event for industry players, has always been a platform for celebrities to showcase their fashion prowess. However, Tacha’s dress revelation this year takes the fashion stakes to a new high, setting a precedent for the cost of fashion at such esteemed events.
As the event continues, Tacha’s $20,000 dress is currently one of the major highlights of the AMVCA 2023, with fans and critics alike eagerly awaiting the subsequent appearances of the BBN star. Whether the extravagance was worth it or not, one thing remains clear: Tacha knows how to make a memorable appearance.
