Nigerian reality star, 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.
According to the Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) star, there is the belief that he didn’t have to work hard to be where he is today.
Recall a while ago, the Lockdown star received major backlash on social media after he made a tweet pointing out that the difference between him and other people was hard work.
“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.”
According to Kiddwaya, Nigerians have a long way to go in terms of thinking. He urged Nigerians to do away with the belief that because a wealthy person gives one a piece of advice, they are looking down on the person.
The 27-year-old star went on to add that it wasn’t his fault that he came from a wealthy background even though he isn’t one to brag.
Concerning his status as a billionaire’s son, The Lagos-born Benue indigen stated that it hasn’t been easy. He explained that his dad and not him is the billionaire so he tries not to get carried away with the title.
“That is his hard-earned money, I’m still trying to hustle for my own money.”
He also spoke about the misconception people have about him being the son of a wealthy person.
“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.”
