The duo were the most-talked about housemates during the fourth edition of the show won by Mercy — the first female to achieve the feat since its inception.

Since the end of the 2019 edition, the reality stars have continued to make the headlines for numerous reasons, especially due to the perceived lingering feud between them.

Tacha maintains a huge fanbase who christened themselves as ‘Titans’ while those backing Mercy are called ‘Mercenaries’. Their teeming fans are also very fond of calling out one another on social media platforms.

But in a now-viral snippet of their forthcoming interview with Toke Makinwa, the media personality, the reality TV stars declared they have ended their rift.

In the teaser of the interview, scheduled for Friday, Makinwa had asked them how they felt seating next to each other.

Responding, Tacha said: “We don’t have to do like what you guys want us to do.”

The 2019 BBNaija winner also called out some Nigerians who enjoy seeing celebrities fighting one another.

“Nigerians like people fighting themselves… we’re tired of fighting. These people abeg, if you want to fight, go and fight yourselves,” Mercy said.

Since their BBNaija stint, the pair have snagged a number of endorsements and gained huge prominence.
