Leo DaSilva, a former housemate of the popular Nigerian reality television show, Big Brother Naija has revealed how his life faired after the show.
The reality TV star who participated in the 2018 BBNaija show tagged ‘Double Wahala’, stated how his business took a nosedive during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In a chat with celebrity dancer, Poco Lee on the ‘Clout Africa’ podcast, DaSilva mentioned, “In my personal life, I am extremely satisfied. Businesswise I am very, very, satisfied because I can’t lie to you I was neck in debt for like three years because I run a private equity firm. And in a month before my birthday. I paid off all the debts. Hundreds of millions.”
In the podcast, he further stated, “The equity investment for me was like the thing I started after the house. Before I was boxing myself into just real estate but I discovered that my passion was not just for real estate. My passion was for money. I needed something that could bring more money.

“Sometimes I used to wake up with (fear) that “am I going to court today?” In a manner that a lot of people invested. Some people travelled out of the country. But I made sure that I paid for all of that. It was COVID-19 that really affected me. Not that I took the money and spent it.”
He also said, “I have never acted. Never sang any song. All I am now is a working-class, businessman who has clouts and is professionally fine. I am satisfied with that.”
