The ex-reality TV star has moved to squash reports that she was suspended by Instagram or chased away by her rivals and other critics.

Symply Tacha has spoken for the first time since she ghosted on the social media platform, Instagram.

Tacha's official Instagram page has not been visible on the platform since yesterday and that has led to many suggesting she might have been suspended by Facebook (owners of Instagram).

A few other persons have suggested that she has been "chased away" by her rival, Mercy, who seems to be getting all the attention and endorsement deals.

Some onlookers believe the social media influencer has gone under after her management choice of Teebillz was heavily criticised by media entrepreneur, Joy Isi Bewaji.

But it seems all of those speculations are wrong, after Tacha in an Instagram live video with ex-BBNaija housemate, Tboss, revealed that it was her decision to deactivate her account.

According to the self-acclaimed Port-Harcourt first daughter, she has been on a 'shadowban' for a while now and needed to go off for a while to fix it.
