The Father of former BBNaija housemate, Terry Waya has revealed how he worked hard to be who he is now.
He revealed this in an interview with BBC News Pigin. During the interview, he made the below statements.
“From Kaduna, I moved to Abuja. My life changed at a point during my relationship with soldiers. It was the time when Babangida was in power. I was still a small boy but all the soldiers were my friend. We partied and did many things together. I did business with them and it was from there my breakthrough came.”

Not many people know that I discovered that Banana Island. I brought Chagoury to do the project. Nobody knew that there was a Banana Island there.”
“One day, I visited one of my closest friends called General Adisa who was the minister of works at the time. I, then, saw a big poster behind him with the words Banana Island. I asked him about it and he said that they were looking for a partner to do the work and then sell the land together.” He said that the government will have their share and the partners too will have their share. I told him I was interested and he said no problem. And that was how Banana Island came to live,” He said, adding that he has a lot of projects that he gave out to other people.
