I Discovered Banana Island – Kiddwaya’s Dad Reveals (Video)
Nigerian socialite and billionaire businessman, Terry Waya, father of BBNaija recently evicted housemate, Kiddwaya, has disclosed that he played a pivotal role in the development of Banana Island; a luxury man-made Island in Lagos, Nigeria, the commercial capital.
In an interview with BBC Pidgin, Mr. Waya revealed that he was not born into wealth,
but luck shone on him during the Military regime of Ibrahim Babangida
when they gave him (Mr. Waya) the contract to develop the luxury Banana Island.
Banana Island is a man-made Island that covers close to 1,630,000 square meters and divided into 536 plots.
The Lebanese-Nigerian Chagoury Group in partnership with
the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing developed the space.
Mr. Terry Waya claimed they gave him the job to develop the area before he handed over the contract to Chagoury to do the job.
He further explained that the then minister of works, General Adisa, gave him
the opportunity to be part of the Banana Island project, which he (Mr. Waya)
contacted the Chagoury brothers, and that gave birth to the luxury Banana Island.
