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 commercial capital.
In an interview with BBC Pidgin, Mr. Waya revealed that he was not born into wealth but however luck shone on him during the Military regime of Ibrahim Babandiga, when he (Mr. Waya) was given the contract to develop the luxury Banana Island.
Banana Island is a man-made Island which covers close to 1,630,000 square metres and is 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 he was given 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.
