Speaking at the event on Friday, October 2, Susan Waya said she was there to welcome the Elites – Erica’s fans – and to show support for Erica, who was her son Kiddwaya’s love interest in the Big Brother Naija house during the recently concluded season of the reality show.
Standing beside Erica, Susan Waya said: “I see myself in this little lady and I’m here to support her. I can’t replace her mother but she’s my daughter. And today, I want to confirm to you, I am KiddRica.”
KiddRica is a portmanteau of Kiddwaya and Erica’s names, and people rooting for them and their relationship refer to themselves as KiddRica shippers.
Kiddwaya’s mother’s revelation that she’s a KiddRica shipper elicited loud cheers from those present.
After her speech, she hugged and kissed Erica.
