Big Brother Naija, BBNaija housemate, Laycon has spoken on the possibility of emerging the winner of ‘Lockdown’ edition of the reality show.
BBNaija ‘lockdown’ launched on Sunday, July 19th, however, barely 72hours into the show, Laycon seems to have captured the hearts of fans and many celebrities
However, he is unaware of his support outside the house and not certain about his chances of being the winner.
When asked of chances of winning, Laycon during his diary session with Biggie said he is not ready to put that pressure on himself
He, however, expressed concern on what BBNaija viewers think about him, adding that his chances of winning are in their hands.
“About my chances of winning, I’m just taking it one day at a time in my head.
“I keep trying not to think about how people /fans are seeing my personality.
“I’m not putting pressure on myself so I don’t affect my chances of winning.”
He further added that he does not see himself forming an alliance with any housemate yet.
Laycon, who is a singer and rapper from Lagos, walked up to the host Ebuka Uchendu in black on black streetwear along with a black jacket with neon lights.
Laycon’s jacket coupled with his “ghetto-like” appearance became the subject of social media ridicule as twitter users likened him to all sorts from being a drug user to a street hawker. A twitter user even said that he won’t be surprised if Big Brother says, “This is Big Brother, Laycon report to the diary room, SARS is here to pick you up.”
The “rejected stone” in Laycon’s case later became the cornerstone when twitter users discovered his music and swiftly began to praise him for his talent.
The 26-year-old, who is a graduate of philosophy from the University of Lagos soon became the darling of social media as videos of his songs surfaced.
He has collaborated with Reminisce and Chinko Ekun on the song Fierce, both rappers took to social media to endorse him. Other celebrities such as Oxlade, Joeboy, and Fireboy followed suit.
It was not a surprise when he started trending on Twitter after the unveiling yesterday. His social media followership has skyrocketed between yesterday and today, he has amassed close to 10k followers both on Twitter and Instagram. Now the most talked about housemate in the house, you probably do not know why he has music artistes and creatives supporting him.
Meanwhile, the twenty housemates in the BBNaija ‘Lockdown’ 2020 edition will hustle for the grand prize of N85m within ten weeks.
