Reactions: Kiddawaya Joining Big Brother Naija

At first, when Terry Waya became aware that his son, ‘Kiddwaya’, was making plans to join the Big Brother Naija show, he didn’t support him. According to him, he wasn’t a fan of the show and he disclosed that he didn’t know what the show was all about. So the whole idea was something he knew nothing about. This is the reason why he refused to support him, at first.

The son who was in charge of everything in his family was Kidawaya. He was like his daddy’s personal assistant. He represented Terry Waya in some events and occasions; he was the one who usually goes to pay the school fees of his siblings. Truly, he was in charge of everything in the family.

So when Kidawaya got involved with the Big Brother Naija activities,  his absence was obviously noticed because his presence had much value at home.

At that time when Kidawaya left the house, Terry Waya asked of his son’s whereabouts and was told that the young man had traveled to Lagos in Nigeria.

When Kidawaya returned home, his father ‘Terry’ demanded that he isolates himself for two weeks. He was following the covid-19 guidelines.

Then, finally, Kidawaya broke the news to his father about his interest to join the Big Brother Naija Show 2020 Edition.

At first, Terry refused to grant his son permission because he left without taking permission from him. Later, Kidawaya had to pass through his dad’s close friends and uncles so as to help him persuade his dad. After much persuasion from his relatives and friends as regards the issue, he permitted Kidawaya to join the show.

Even while Kidawaya was in isolation, he made calls to his uncles and family friends to discuss the matter with the father.

He disclosed that if he didn’t get his father’s blessings, he wouldn’t have gone ahead to join the Big Brother Naija Show.

The business tycoon revealed that while he was at his son’s age, his own parents had no knowledge of his whereabouts, so he permitted Kidawaya and gave him his blessings to do whatever he desires in that regard.

At some point in the BBN house, some Nigerians rumored that Terry Waya was doing all he can to buy support for his son but the rumor was denied.
