Every year in Saudi Arabia, officials with the conservative Muslim kingdom’s Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice (CPVPV), better known as the religious police, clamp down on cupid do-gooders, prowling the street from shop to shop looking for anything related to Valentine’s Day. Items were confiscated and people who looked like they were celebrating or promoting the holiday were arrested and punished.

    Hey there excellent website! Does running a blog such as this take a great deal of
    work? I have virtually no knowledge of computer programming
    but I had been hoping to start my own blog soon.
    Anyhow, should you have any suggestions or techniques for new
    blog owners please share. I know this is off topic however I just wanted to ask.
    Kudos!

    Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely
    long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but
    I’m still new to everything. Do you have any suggestions for novice blog
    writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% sure. Any
    tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    Its like you read my thoughts! You seem to know a lot about this, such as you wrote the e-book
    in it or something. I think that you can do with some p.c.
    to drive the message house a little bit, however instead of that, that is magnificent blog.
    A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.

    A few of my blog readers have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox.

    Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?

When asked if the rumour about she having a body adour is true, Tacha replied;

Well I’m here, what do you think?

Recall that, during the days of the reality show, Mike was heard telling Khafi to tell her friend to top up (use deodorant).

Despite not mentioning any names, quite a number of viewers have assumed he was talking about Tacha seeing as she and Khafi are pals. Well, Khafi and Cindy are also pals.

Some other housemates, seemed to agree with the idea that someone has body odour, going by their reactions.

BBNaija: Tacha reveals how Biggie “turned her on” during reality show 20190928 170355

Tacha, one of the housemates during the Big Brother Naija, has claimed that the only person she was attracted to while in the house was Biggie.

Biggie is the instructive voice behind the screen of the reality show.

Tacha stated this during an interview on Cool FM with Dotun and Kemi Smallz.

While responding to a question about who she was attracted to in the house, Tacha narrated how Biggie had summoned and “turned her on” with the ‘No-Leave-No-Transfer’ slogan.

“I was attracted to Biggie. I was attracted to his voice and Biggie once turned me on.

“When Frodd won the Ultimate Veto Power and it was nomination night, he called Tacha. And after calling other nominees, he called Tacha again.

“When I queried, he said, ‘Tacha, no leave, no transfer’ and that turned me on. I was like ‘Wow, Biggie did that for me!,” Tacha said.

Tacha, was, however, disqualified from the show due to violent behaviour.
