Reactions have continued to trail former Big Brother Naija reality show star, Tacha Akide’s $20,000 dress at the 2023 Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA).
DAILY POST recalls that the 9th edition of AMVCA, held from May 18 to 20 at the Eko Hotels and Suites Convention Centre in Lagos, was an occasion where Nigerian celebrities showcased their beautiful fashion styles.
Taking to social media to reveal the cost of the dress she wore to the finale of the event on Sunday, Tacha, in a tweet accompanied by pictures, said: “Everybody looks amazing on the black carpet today. But we all know that nobody comes close.”
Tacha, who was dressed in a blue see-through dress designed by celebrity designer Tolu Bally, claimed that her dress was worth $20,000.
She went further to share a receipt for $20,000 as evidence of her claim.
Many Nigerians disagreed with Tacha’s claim about her dress. Below are some of the reactions:
@Its_Olayinnka: “These things are just very unnecessary. I love your dress. You didn’t have to show the receipt. You’ll never know if someone else’s dress is worth double that price.
“Besides, Price doesn’t always show originality.”
@LoveNemesisX: “Why not wear the receipt too?”
@SirThosine: “You wore 15 million cloth just to be clapping for people collecting awards. God is wonderful.”
@Fortunecare: “I saw it, nobody comes close to your nakedness.”
@Rickyslim4: “Is funny how you try to justify your lies, real truth doesn’t fight for accreditation.”
@jbaltolajumoke: “Patience Ozokwor won merit award tonight; no earrings, no make-up, no bone straight even wear Deeper Life fine gown but some people wey no win any award dey wear 20k dollars gown. Wow! It’s not of him that willeth sha #AMVCA9.”
