Big Brother Naija ‘lockdown’ star and Billionaire son, Terseer ‘Kiddwaya’ Waya – in an interview with BBC Pidgin – has opened up on some of the challenges he faces being a son of billionaire Terry Waya.
During the course of the interview, the reality star bemoaned the belief that he didn’t have to work hard to be where he is today.
According to Kiddwaya, Nigerians have a long way to go in terms of thinking. He advised Nigerians to desist from the notion that because a wealthy person gives one a piece of advice, they are looking down on the person.
In his words ;
“I feel like people completely misinterpreted what I meant. I feel like, in this country, a son or a daughter from a wealthy background cannot have an opinion, cannot talk, cannot eat, cannot sleep, cannot think. They are not allowed to do anything. What I was simply trying to say is hard work gets you far. It is simply for motivational purpose.
What I face on a regular is that people don’t believe I work hard because they feel like ‘oh, it’s your dad’s connection, your dad gave it to you’. They have this misconception that everyone from a privileged background gets things handed to them easily. And to be fair, that’s not the case.”
