The father of Kiddwaya, Big Brother Naija house (Season 5) Tersoo ‘Terry’ Waya is a 55-years-old Nigerian Business man and a social popular personality.
He hails from Vandeikya Local Government area of Benue State Nigeria and he’s fondly referred to as Mr. Versace. Terry is a socialite and he is called Mr. Versace because of his flair for expensive and luxury lifesyle and his love for the international brand, Versace.
Terry Waya who is the father of one of the housemates of the mega Nigerian Reality TV Show, Big Brother Naija, Kiddwaya, is a bilonaire of note.
When you tell tales of some of the richest men in around in Nigeria in the past decade or more, the name of this business mogul will sure make the list.
Being one that is friends with some of the top political and business savvy’s such as, Chief Dele Momodu ( Journalist/Publisher, Businessman, and motivational speaker, also the CEO of Ovation International), Senator Dino Melaye (Former Senator representing Kogi East), Chief Femi Otedola (CEO Forte Oil), and the rest; Terry has also been in the news for both the good and not the choicest of reasons.
His fame gained popularity after he threw a fun fair bash in United Kingdom to celebrate his 40th birthday with over then 10 Nigerian governors in attendance in 2001. That birthday gig, for so long, remained a point of reference to other high octane parties held around town.
He has had viral videos on social media with clips showing him in various areas of a luxury hotel room in a European city, most of which attracted negative criticism from fans around the world; especially people from Benue State.
In his state, he is regarded as a homeless man, the reason being that during his father’s burial in his village, he brought a company that mounted a conducive temporary home for him and his visitors which was immediately dismantled and taken away after the burial.
Merely looking at his son, Kiddwaya on the reality show, one would assume he is nothing but a spoiled rich kid; but when you take your time to watch him out, you realize how truly humble and a great person he is. I bet his father isn’t different. I feel he is judged by the society because of luxurious lifestyle (a life I feel he deserves after putting in the work) and his clique of rich friends.
