In a chat with celebrity dancer, Poco Lee on the ‘Clout Africa’ podcast, DaSilva said;
“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.”
