Terry Waya, the father of BBNaija Ex-housemate, Kiddwaya, has said that he was the one to discover Banana Island in Lagos.
Terry Waya made this statement in an interview with the BBC (pidgin) where he spoke about how he made his money as a young man.
He also disclosed that he got the contract to develop the luxury Banana Island in Lagos, Nigeria commercial capital. Terry Waya claims he was the first person that developed the Banana Island before he handed it over to the Lebanese-Nigerian Chagoury Group to complete it.
According to Terry, he first found out about the Island on a visit to his friend, General Adisa’s house, where he saw a poster with the inscription ‘Banana Island’. He then asked the General about it who explained that they were looking for an investor to collaborate with, in order to develop the man-made Island and then put it up for sale.
Because of his friendship with Adisa, he asked the general to give him the project, which he did get, Terry Waya then called on Chagoury to do the project and this was how the luxurious island was found.
