He didn’t match my reality - BBNaija's Leo Dasilva says praises late dad (photo)

Former Big Brother Naija reality star Leo Dasilva, has taken to his Instagram handle to share a rare picture of him with his late father. According to his post, Sir Leo Babarinde Dasilva Snr died in 2015 at the age of 66.

Aside from sharing a throwback picture of him with his late dad, Leo ceased the opportunity to share some of his things his father taught him. He added that his late dad advised him to start making money at the age of 16 which eventually paid off after he was cut off from his father’s finances.

That was not all, Leo further opened up on how his late mother raised him. He added that one of the major reasons why he never get to talk about his late father was because his words did not match his reality.

His post reads: “I always avoided speaking about my father while growing up. This wasn’t because I didn’t know who he was, in fact he never hesitated to tell me exactly who I am and who he was each and every time. One major reason I avoided it was because who he was didn’t match my reality and kids would label me a liar. My reality was never what he told me or my name, my reality at the time was my struggling single mother who gave me more than she had to make me a great man. My father taught me two important things in life on this day

1. Do not trust or rely on anyone asides yourself.

2. Don’t ever get carried away or plan your life around promises from people. One of my greatest regrets is still alienating him during his last months alive. But it won’t have been the first time. We had loads of arguments from 2009 - 2015 because I became too aware too quick. I believed all the family I needed was my mother so my dad and I could go an entire year without speaking. I will give him credit for one thing which was I still believe was a huge gamble, telling me to start making my own money at 16 while I was living in another man’s country. Without him cutting me off, I would not have become a serial entrepreneur. Long and short of this, I loved my Father very much and people close to him would know he loved me just as much. We had our differences but it was mostly because we were the same people. Continue to rest in peace Sir Leo Babarinde Dasilva Snr (1949-2015).
