In our journey in life, it is not uncommon to encounter one or two stumbling blocks that cannot only derail us from our goals but also discourage us from wanting to venture out to try other things.
However, we are picking one or two lessons of persistence from Big Brother Naija 2019 housemate, Simply Tacha who has been a trending topic and easily one of the most talked-about housemates thus far into the show.
The 23-year-old Rivers State indigene in a discussion with fellow housemate, Khafi has recalled her journey into the house and what she had to go through before she was able to audition and get selected as a contestant on the reality TV show.
According to the Port Harcourt based social media sensation, she lodged in a presidential hotel which also served as the venue so as to be one of the first people but was shocked when at 6 am, there was a large crowd already waiting outside. By that time, her tag read around 300.
Discouraged by the crowd, she also had to deal with name-calling as she was tagged an ‘Instagram Prostitute’ by a lady at the auditions. The lady also went as far as sharing on video on social media and this went viral.
Undeterred, Simply Tacha decided to try her luck in Enugu and this time she lodged in a cheaper hotel and was able to snag the number 86 audition number. According to her, she woke up feeling discouraged and indecisive that morning but she eventually auditioned and mother luck shone its beam on her as she became one of the selected housemates of the thousands that auditioned.
It is noteworthy that Simply Tacha is already becoming a fan favorite for many who are rooting for her and expect her to be one of the housemates to make it to the top three but as the show unfolds, it waits to be seen how far she will go.
