In less than 48 hours, the curtain will be drawn on what has been a very entertaining season of the Big Brother Naija reality show which was themed ‘lockdown’ edition, a theme that suited the realities of the outside world.
This year has undoubtedly been an interesting yet innovative one. The covid-19 pandemic changed the order of things and reality TV was not left out.
The BBNaija auditions were done online and painstakingly, the housemates were picked to be the next big thing in the country. They were 20 in number and they came into the house with alot of confidence and swagger….pause…. there was however, one young man whose appearance/entrance instantly became the butt of jokes and brutal memes, his name – LAYCON.
This Lekan guy may look underrated because of his physical appearance but don’t be too quick to judge #BBNaija

LAYCON instantly became a trending topic on micro-blogging website, Twitter. He was deemed to be the type of Nigerian youth that would be an easy target for police harassments and other palaver.
However, things started taking a different twist upon the discovery that the young man is a very promising rapper with a philosophical brain (Mad oo)
Laycon’s fans was birthed and they tagged themselves ”THE ICONS”, it was a whole new level of stanning for the UNILAG graduate.
Laycon’s time in the house has been a fairytale, he kept on dominating the trends and his fanbase did not stop growing. Laycon was put up for possible eviction for several weeks and in those weeks, his votes polled a high percentage.
He got embroiled in a dramatic love-triangle with Erica and the topsy-turvy relationship they did or did not have culminated in getting the latter disqualified.
Laycon moved on from that messy moment as his fans brushed it aside. They gave so much energy and hype was built for his name anytime it came to the business of voting.

These ICONS have consistently kept him in the house for 70 days and the voting portals closed yesterday. He’s currently battling with his fellow finalists, Nengi, Neo, Vee and Dorathy for the 85 Million Ultimate prize. The big question now is.. What will happen if LAYCON doesn’t win tomorrow ?
“This is demeaning” Nigerians call BBNaija’s Kaisha out for including her “maid” in her video
Big Brother Naija reality star, Kaisha Umaru is being dragged on Twitter for including her a girl said to be her maid, in her video.
She shared a video, gushing about how her skin is glowing. In the video, she is seen calling for a young lady named Deborah after gushing about her skin.
When the lady arrives, Kaisha asks her what she’s making for her for breakfast and the girl responds. Kaisha then tells the lady to get on with it and bring her breakfast.
Twitter users felt she didn’t need to add the last part of the video with her domestic staff so they called her out. Some said her action was “demeaning” to the girl, others asked why it was necessary for her to put her domestic staff out like that.
Below is the video and also reactions to it.

BBNaija star, Laycon can’t take his eyes off Erica as she shows up at Dorathy’s 25th Birthday party (video)
Big Brother Naija star, Dorathy Bachor celebrated her 25th birthday party on Wednesday night, November 4th with some of her fellow ex-housemates including die-hard fans and friends in attendance.
At the event, Dorathy was handed a key to a Mercedes Benz car as birthday gift from her fans. See previous report and video
A video from the event is now making rounds on social media. It shows the moment Erica arrived at the party and walked up to Dorathy to exchange pleasantries as Laycon stood close to them.
Whilst greeting the celebrant and commanding attention from cheering guests at the party, Laycon was spotted staring at Erica in ‘admiration.’
Recall the Big Brother Naija season five winner had a crush on Erica while they were in the house, and also spoke to their housemates about his affection for her on several occasions after they became close. However, Erica, on the other hand, only wanted him as a friend as she was attracted to him ‘mentally’ and not ‘physically.’
The situation between the pair later transgressed into an altercation, which led to the disqualification of Erica from the Big Brother Naija show.
