In a recent television interview, the reality TV show star noted that she cannot date a broke man, stating that her ‘market is expensive.’

Over the weekend, Tacha graced the birthday of ace Nigerian comedian, Ayo Makun, fondly called AY.
At the party, Tacha was seen spraying the birthday boy dollars on the dance floor.
