BEVERLY HILLS, September 16, (THEWILL) – Terry Waya, the billionaire father of evicted BBNaija housemate, Kiddwaya, says he developed the artificial Lagos Island, Banana Island.
The billionaire stated this while speaking with BBC News pidgin saying that he played a major role in the development of highbrow residential estate, Banana Island through his friendship with some of his friends in the military.
He said: “That Banana Island was given to me. 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.”
