It wasn’t hard to connect the dots. He is the son of Terry Waya, the once- flamboyant playboy who was the toast of society tales back in the mid-90s to early 2000s.
His journey in the fifth edition of Big Brother Naija however ended on Sunday, September 13, 2020 when he became the 12th housemate to be evicted from the reality TV show.Kiddwaya’s latest comment has been tagged insensitive and egoistic [Instagram/@kiddwaya]
Kidd as he is fondly called, impressed many viewers with his self-assured carriage and courted drama with his relationship with fellow housemate Erica.
But while he was in the house generating conversations, his wealthy dad was also making the news.
Waya had two Instagram Live interviews with high-profile society newsman Dele Momodu where he discussed his son’s Big Brother Naija exploits. He also did the same with the BBC.
Along with his son’s Big Brother adventure, these interviews brought him back to the limelight and had many young people asking, who is Terry Waya?

Unlike his days when he was the star of the social scene, Waya had been quiet for a couple of years. He hadn’t been in the news much in what we would call the internet era. Interestingly, it was also Momodu who gave the Nigerian businessman his first major news coverage of the internet era when the veteran journalist visited his Abuja mansion and published photos from his tour of the palatial home.
But shortly before that, the Benue-State born businessman had made the news for the wrong reasons.
He had two convictions in England for a couple of financial crimes and also had a run-in with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
All of these were in his waning days as the most-prominent socialite from Nigeria.
