I discovered Banana Island – Billionaire Terry Waya reveals

Terry Waya, the billionaire father of recently evicted BBNaija housemate, Kiddwaya, has claimed that he played a pivotal role in the development of Banana Island; a luxury artificial Island in Lagos, Nigeria commercial capital.

In an interview with BBC NEWS 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.

According to Terry Waya, he was given the job to develop the area before he handed over the contract to Chagoury to do the job.

Terry hails from Benue state but moved to Kaduna where he got married and brought up his kids before sending them off to a boarding school in London.

In his words,

“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”. He added.
