Since the BBNaija 2020 edition started, one of the housemates that have constantly put out great contents for viewers is Olamilekan Agbeleshe popularly known as Laycon.
The 26 year-old 2.1 graduate of philosophy from the University of Lagos introduced himself as a versatile man who can coin words together to soothe scenarios and moods and truly, he has proved that times without number in the House, dropping bars, words of wisdom and soothing his bestie, Erica and everyone who comes his way.
Laycon had started his singing career at quite an early age and has had his song ‘Fierce’ on MTV BASE Top ten charts for six months dishes out words of wisdom that hit the viewers and housemates alike punchily.
When he first appeared at the welcome ceremony of the show, Laycon, whom The Guardian referred to as Diamond In The Rough pulled up in what seemed like a Christmas Light, and viewers wondered what kinda person is this. He walked up to the host Ebuka Uchendu in black on black streetwear along with a black jacket with neon lights, which 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.
He, however, quickly rose to one of the important cornerstones in the House, whose name does not go a day without trending on the streets of Twitter. Of the top 5 most mentioned, tweeted and loved housemate, Laycon is surely one, following the likes of Erica, Nengi, Kiddwaya and Ozo. Outside the house, his social media followership skyrocketed from far below 10k to 200k IG followers as at today (having spent just 12 days in the House). As a matter of fact, he is the first housemate to be verified on IG.
All these housemates think they are entertaining not knowing that viewers can only see and hear Ozo, Nengi, Kidd, Laycon and Erica. The struggle is real 😂😂😂😂😂. VOTE Ozo #bbnaija pic.twitter.com/1c5IecwjB7

Speaking about his music, the rapper has an EP and over 10 songs to his credit. He had worked with several Nigerian artistes, including Chinko Ekun and Reminisce on one of the songs in his EP Fierce, released earlier this year. His bars are not just bursting brains but have been confirmed by MI’s former music label Chocolate City and Ebuka, the show’s host.

In the House, every housemate have a soft spot for Laycon and have endorsed him. In just 1 day, Wathoni opined he is an efiko, Brighto thinks he is smart and intelligent and Nengi described him a man of wisdom.
His bestie Erica confirmed this also while speaking with Wathoni and Tolanibaj in the midnight today, saying he is of depth intellect and is he only one she’s been able to connect with more mentally.
His iCONS are rooting for him badly and we hope they can keep him in the House till the last day.
